Saw this meme on DelFonte's blog and thought it would be a fun post for the holidays. i hope that everyone is enjoying spending time with their loved ones.
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I hate wrapping gifts, i hate wrapping paper, i almost threw one of the presents across the room the other night when i tore the paper twice on the corners while wrapping (why must the paper be so thin?!). I would do gift bags, but kids don’t find gift bags as fun to tear into.
Real…definitely. This is a must.
The weekend after Thanksgiving usually. But this year we were out of town and with Master gone this year, the whole process was a little complicated so it finally got done about the 11th.
The weekend following New Years (so the tree can go out for trash pickup)
Santa wraps. Santa also leaves an unwrapped special gift.
White lights on the tree. Kids have their own individual trees with colored lights.
I like one glass of eggnog a year and then hot chocolate the rest of the time.
My first computer – ACER 486DX
Singing Christmas carols in the German neighborhood where we lived.
My husband. We buy what we want throughout the year so there is rarely that “perfect gift” left by Christmas time.
My daughter – she circles half the American Girl catalog for me.
7 or 8. A friend’s older brother spoiled it for us.
Mail…sometimes they even get mailed on time, lol.
i love the idea of snow and a White Christmas, but i really only like snow for a couple days at a time. Then i want it to warm up and melt. So the fantasy is always better than the reality.
A Bible Study and new Bible.
I have not been since i was a kid and now i have really bad knees so i know how to, but it’s not recommended.
Miracle on 34th Street, the original from 1947 with Maureen O’Hara
Sometime in Nov, though occasionally things might be ordered early. I’m a huge fan of Amazon Prime and having the majority of my shopping purchased delivered via my friendly UPS driver.
Yes. And i’ve even admitted to it. In fact, we had a White Elephant/Dirty Santa at a late holiday party in Jan once where the requirement was to bring a present that you received but didn’t want. It was so much fun!
Carol of the Bells
stay home. Too much family at the holidays can be a little overwhelming.
Of course! That’s why there’s a song.
Neither…snowman. (kids…once they’re older, probably a star)
No theme. One year i’ll have a grown-up looking tree with a theme. I’d like to go with blue and white.
Ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, and apple pie.
My Master home. But we’re still a ways off from that so let’s go with a kid-free weekend. That sounds nice.
