Christmas Tag

I've been anxiously waiting to see if this blog meme would make the rounds this year. I had so much fun with it last year. I must say Thank You to Munchkins and the Military for passing it on to me. I'm wishing you a Merry Christmas or Mele Kalikimaka, whichever one you are celebrating in your tropical paradise!

In case you aren't familiar with these types of posts, there are a handful or two of questions for bloggers to answer. The list is passed around bloggyland until someone has the good sense to stop it...because Christmas is over.

Until that happens, I'm joining in and tagging others. What can be more fun than Christmas posts? Ok... besides birthdays and Disney and shopping without kids and... Seriously the question was rhetorical.

1.       What do you love the most about Christmas time? 
My most favorite part about Christmas is the decorations. I love how everything, almost everywhere is decked out in color and sparkle. I also love the spirit of the season. I feel like people are more giving and focused on others this time of year.

2.       Do you celebrate the holiday in style or is Bah-Humbug for you? 
I'm not quite sure what this question means. I do celebrate. Not sure if I'm in style. Sometimes I just hang out in my pj bottoms and an old ratty sweatshirt at home while I celebrate :) Not a Bah Humbug though!.       

Note my (husband's) comfy Iowa sweatshirt

3. Are you leaving anything out for Santa Claus this year so he remembers to leave your presents?

I don't know if Santa will get anything. It will depend on the kids. Do they or don't they want to put in the effort?

4.       What is the one gift you are most looking forward to GIVING? {It can be to your kids, another family member, etc – remember to be discreet if they read your blog!} I'm pretty excited about my daughter's gift because it's something she has been wanting but we couldn't find. And my mom's gift. But that is all I can say.

5.       What is your all-time favorite Christmas movie?

Elf. It's always the first movie on our list after Thanksgiving.

6.       What is your all-time favorite Christmas song?

Baby, It's Cold Outside. I have to dance or sing whenever it comes on. And the kids are trained well enough to join me! 

7.       If given the opportunity would you participate in an “Ugly Sweater” party and what sweater would you wear?  Peruse one on the internet or even in your own closet and show us!

I'm always up for anything! I suppose I would have to scour the internet to find the perfect sweater. Or raid my mom's closet like my sister does! But hosting an ugly sweater party probably wouldn't be on the top of my list. However, it would probably be the first on my husband's list.

8.       Have you started any Christmas traditions this year that you plan on carrying forward?

We haven't started anything just yet. I have seen the mini-van express idea for Christmas light viewing and love it. I think it would be a tradition worth starting!

9.       It’s Christmas morning … what does it look like outside where you live?

Sunny. Green. Warm. Not the way Christmas should look.

10.   You just found yourself standing under the mistletoe … who comes up to give you a kiss first?

Zachary. Any chance he can get to be affectionate.
