Ya wanna know more about me?

Okay I know I already posted today but its Friday so why not post another! One of my friends LA did this post and I thought I would join the fun and tell yall more about me.

Okay before I answer these questions I want to say THANK YOU Candice for your sweet sweet blog post today. Candice is one of my girlfriends who does a BFF post every friday. {I need to do this too...how much fun.} Anyways she is SO SWEET. You can see her post here! THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Getting To Know Me!!
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? - Wrapping Paper! I dont know why but I LOVE wrapping gifts! haha. I am the one who does all the wrapping at Christmas.
2. Real tree or artificial? - Artificial hands down. I personally think they are prettier when decorated plus I dont have to worry about watering it or the annoying little pine needles that fall off. I can burn a pine candle for the smell. :)
3. When do you put up the tree? -That is a good one...usually the day after Thanksgiving...this year it was the weekend before Thanksgiving. I love Christmas decor!!
4. Do you like eggnog? I do not. I dont know why but yuck. Its just thick and ugh...maybe its the thickness I cant get past...I love milk but it almost makes me think of spoiled milk.
5. Favorite gift received as a child? Wow--this is hard. I have several but Ill never forget my barbie house {it was huge and pink} I also remeber how excited I was over my three wheeler--it was one of the powerwheel ones....I think I was about 4 or 5...I stayed outside riding it.
6. Do you have a nativity scene? -I have one small one. I say this every year but I would love to have a BIG one. I love them!
7. Hardest person to buy for? Hands down Aaron's dad! Gotta love him but man its hard. Aaron even asks me each year what to get him.
8. Easiest person to buy for? um... Im going to go with ME! like my mom always says...I can always find something "I just have to have"
9. Mail or email Christmas cards?- MAIL I love getting mail...especially Christmas cards. I even keep them after Christmas...in a box. Its fun to go back and look at them too especially the picture card ones.
10. Favorite Christmas movie? - Christmas Vacation!!!!!!
11. When do you start shopping for Christmas? - It really just depends. I do not have an answer for this one.
12. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? - hmm...Christmas dinner {its like Thanksgiving all over again} and my mamas Christmas Breakfast. She makes a WONDERFUL breakfast!
13. Clear lights or colored lights on the tree? - definitely clear lights. Growing up we always had colored but when I was a teenager my mom started doing clear only and that is how I decorate my tree. BUT....whenever I have children one day I will probably put colored lights on their tree/s and leave the clear ones for my more formal tree. Every child loves the colorful lights at Christmas!!
14. Favorite Christmas song? I love Mary Did You Know--so pretty! And Baby Its Cold Outside
15. Travel or stay home at Christmas? Stay home. Im not sure it would feel like Christmas if I wasnt home.
16. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?-yes I can but do we have to do it here...as long as we know Rudolph we are good!
17. Angel on tree top or star? I do not have either. I have colorful glittery stick thingies. {how do yall like that description} Sorry the actual word for them is on the tip of my tongue but we are moving right along....
18. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Morning? I did not know Santa visited some on Christmas Eve....we open Christmas Morning. ;)
19. The most annoying thing about this time of year? -SHOPPERS!! Ahh.

20. What I love most about Christmas? Oh goodness....this question could be the start of a novel. Okay Im keeping it short and sweet! I love spending time with my family and friends. I love giving to others--especially the less fortunate!! Most of all the best part of Christmas is JESUS CHRIST. The birth of our SAVIOR! Its so important to celebrate the real meaning behind Christmas and to not get caught up in what society has made it.
So now yall join in and tell us a bit about your self!!
