Can you believe it is 2 days before Christmas???
This past weekend, we got all of our Christmas shopping done. So now it is time for us to kick back, relax, and hang out with family.
Why don’t we talk a little bit about how we celebrate Christmas around here??
Do you send out Christmas cards?
Nope. I’m so not with it.
How soon do you start shopping?
Well… I can happily say that we bought all of our presents this past weekend! Coffee was needed!
Do you have a lot of gifts to buy?
Not really. We just buy for our siblings and parents. Hopefully next year we will have Baby Delight to buy for!
Do you bake cookies?
I didn’t bake anything this year so far. I did make Chex Mix for Luvy though. Does that count?
Do you put up a Christmas tree?
Yes! We have a big one in the living room, and a smaller tree. 🙂 I love the lights!
If so, is it fake or real?
Fake. I don’t want the mess or the allergies a real one comes with!
Do you like tinsel?
Never used it!
Do you use homeade or storebought ornaments?
Store bought. Pretty much all of our ornaments have some sort of meaning to them too!
Do you put Christmas lights outside your house?
We have a wreath that has lights on it above the garage door.
Do you put lights on the tree?
Yes… and no. Our tree is prelit, and I would never go back!
How about popcorn and cranberries?
Not on the tree, but I love them!
Is there a wreath hanging on your door?
Yes… and it scares me every time I walk by the front door. I think it is someone standing there! lol
Do you celebrate it?
Yes. We have Christmas with my mom and step dad on Christmas Eve.
Do you hang up your stocking?
Have you ever left cookies out for Santa?
I don’t think so… I’ll have to ask my mom that!
The Grinch… with Jim Carrey!
Character from any Christmas Movie?
The Grinch… 🙂 or maybe Buddy the Elf.
Mary Did You Know
When I was a little girl, my mamaw would spend the night at our house on Christmas Eve. I could never fall asleep because of the anticipation of Santa coming. Christmas morning was always so magical with my parents, brother, and all my grandparents there.
Plain ol’ sugar cookies, but I have yet to master the GF cookie!
This or That…
Give or Receive?
Give! I’m so awkward receiving. I would much rather bless someone else.
Ham or Turkey?
We always do a pineapple ham. However, I’m not much of a ham or turkey girl.
Star or Angel?
Our tree is topless!! I’m still on the hunt for a tree topper (4 years later…)
White Lights or Colored Lights?
White.. hands down!
Blinking Lights or Still Lights?
Still… the blinking ones make me feel woozy.
Were you Naughty or Nice this year?
A bit of both probably… 🙂
What do you want for Christmas this year?
A phone call from our adoption agency that we have been matched! 🙂
When do you open your gifts?
Christmas Eve with my mom and step dad, Christmas day with my dad and Luvy’s family
What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten?
Oh goodness… I couldn’t even tell you!
What’s the worst gift you’ve ever gotten?
I’m not sure of that either! It’s not really about the gifts for me.
Do you like wrapping gifts?
I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either.
Can you name all the reindeer?
Oh my… nope!
Have you ever gotten a kiss under the mistletoe?
I don’t think so…
Do you go carolling?
Negative. I don’t sing. 🙂
Do you drive around and look at the Christmas lights?
We usually do! I love all the lights.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Very few. I’m from the south!
Who do you celebrate Christmas with?
Both of our families in Tennessee.
Have you ever had your picture taken with Santa?
Yes. Pretty much every year when I was a kid.
What part of Christmas do you look most foward to?
Having the entire family together. Sadly, my brother won’t be here this year.
(Christmas last year with my brother and sister-in-law)
Hope you all have a Marvelous Monday!
White or colored lights for you?
