Stolen

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I love them both, but this year, I'm sticking with hot chocolate :)

2. Does Santa wrap the presents or just set them under the tree? I wrap them AND set them under the tree. We don't do the whole santa thing, but I guess we'll start again...next year?

3. Colored or white lights on the tree/house? I like white lights, but we have a small tree that is prelit, and it is colored. It's kind of cute.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? No.

5. When do you put up your decorations? We had so much going on this year, we weren't going to decorate. But Aaron finally put up our little tree about a week ago. Definitely makes it feel more like Christmas.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Eh, my Nanny's creamed corn is the best. Other than that, just desserts!

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? I remember my mom bought my sister and I a minnie mouse tent one year. And I remember being so excited that she let us sleep in it in the living room that night.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I'm very nosey by nature. One year, I stayed up and watched through the crack in the door as Nanny took ALL the presents from her bedroom into the living room where the tree was.

9. Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve? We open all our presents on Christmas Eve from the family, and then "santa's gifts" on Christmas day.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Ours is prelit. But I'm looking forward to when we get a house so we can get a real tree so I can decorate it.

11. Snow! Love or Dread it? We rarely get snow here. I wouldn't say I love it. It's fun for a day or so, but I definitely don't want it around all of the winter.

12. Can you ice skate? No, I suck at it.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Not at the moment....

14. What is the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Having all my family here to celebrate with me. Which is why this year is going to be so awesome, we're all going to be together.

15. Favorite holiday dessert? uhhh! so many to choose from.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

17. What tops your tree? This year, it's a star. Usually it's an angel that Nanny used to tell us was our Mom looking down over us for Christmas.

18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Both, but particularly love giving. I like to put a lot of thought into the things I get/make for people. And I love to see their reactions.

19. What is your favorite Christmas song? Baby It's cold outside [okay, I don't know if that's the name of it, but that's how it goes...]

20. Candy Canes? I like the soft sugar peppermints as opposed to regular candy canes, but I guess those are okay, too.

You know what makes me happy? That you have so many memories of your mom. And the part about the angel on the tree being your mom? No lie- I teared up a little bit. Probably some of the most fun I have being a mom is at Christmas when I get to get the things I know Jack & Livi wanted all year and just seeing how excited they get over it all. You're going to love it.
