Christmas Tag

My sister-in-law had this on her blog and I thought it looked fun, so I did it!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper is best, but sometimes gift bags are just easier.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Real--they smell soooo good.

3. When do you put up the tree? Whenever we get around to it.

4. When do you take the tree down? Whenever we get around to it.

5. Do you like eggnog? Eggnog once or twice a year is good enough for me.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Trying to think back, I'm really not sure.

7. Hardest person to buy for? Lance. I know, he's my husband so he should be the easiest, but he's incredibly hard to buy presents for.

8. Easiest person to buy for? Skye!

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yeah, a couple of little ones. One of these days I want to get a nice, bigger one.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail is always better, but that doesn't necessarily mean we'll be sending any out this year.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A scarf and a little key chain flashlight (Iwon't say who gave it to me).

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? The Santa Clause

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually in December when it's almost too late (or is too late) to have it sent in time for Christmas.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't think so.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? The same thing that's my favorite thing to eat all year long--CHOCOLATE!!!!

16. Lights on the tree? Of course. You have to have lights on the tree. My favorite Christmas lights are blue and then white. (Nathan is just weird, Camille. We have white lights on our little tree this year!)

17. Favorite Christmas song? "Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel" and "Far Far Away on Judea's Plain."

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Whatever means being with family. I wish we were traveling to be with family this year, but alas, we are staying home.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Yep.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel--always an angel.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? It's always been tradition in my family to open one present on Christmas Eve and then the rest Christmas morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? The commercialization and the fact that they want to stop calling it "Christmas." It's nearly impossible to find cards anymore that actually say Christmas on them--they all say "Happy Holidays." Well, the holiday is CHRISTMAS--it's about Christ! Let's remember that!

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Uh, I guess I like the green trees and blue lights.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? The chocolate desserts after!

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Stuff from Amazon.

Now I tag anyone else who feels like doing this!

How can you go wrong with white lights??? I thought this was a fun tag and fun to think of all your favorite things! I agree about them trying not to call it Christmas anymore. I just made Nate's work Christmas cards and signed it "Merry Christmas" just to prove that some people still like it that way! Skye is so cute with animals...one day I'm just going to have to send her a real kitty!!!

I've always liked colored lights before, but this year I realized that the white light actually look really nice! I think I'm going to use them from now on! It would be so much fun if we could really have a little kitty wrapped up under the tree for Skye, wouldn't it? When we get a house (hopefully next summer), we definitely have to get a pet for her!

We had all those trees at our wedding reception with white lights on them, so Nate thinks white lights remind him of a wedding. I'm not giving in!!! It would be fun to give her a kitty! We have a big kitty here...he's about 8 months old and he's a big guy and so sweet...but you'd have to talk Nate into giving him away, but he's so big he'd be perfect for Skye. Next year we'll have another batch of kitties for sure and we'll save one just for her! What are you getting her for Christmas?

Skye is getting lots of toys for Christmas this year. She isn't growing much these days, and she's basically got enough winter clothes, so we went with toys!
