Holiday Meme

Holiday Meme I "borrowed" from Knotty Mouse

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Super Chocolatey Hot Chocolate

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?
Wraps them

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
I like the monochromatic look, but we have lights of all the colors, and some that are just white

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
Nope, but I think I may have one year

5. When do you put up your decorations?
Not early enough. We just started the other night. I always think "Next year we'll do it earlier"

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
Mmmm....? I don't know, I can never make up my mind.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
My totally ugly stocking that my mom knit me. It was only so ugly because I chose the colors, and yep, I still have it, and I still love it.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I don't remember.. probably from my older brother.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Yep. We go to Hubby's Aunt's house and get a gift from them. The other ones we open on Christmas morning.

10. What kind of decorations are on your Christmas Tree?
Handmade ones from the kids, plus some from our families. I also make a picture ornament for each year per child. When they are grown up, I'll give their whole set to them. Someday, I'd like one of those matchy matchy magazine trees to go in my clean magazine looking house.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread?
It's pretty, but it's cold, and I hate to drive in it. I don't think I'd miss it if I moved South.

12. Can you ice skate?

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
As usual, I can't make up my mind! The one I use most often is my wool ball winder.

14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Family. It's all about the kids here.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
Cherry pie, or pumpkin pie

16 What is your favorite holiday tradition?
watching the kids open their gifts.

17. What tops your tree?
An angel with a lighted halo thingy all around her.

18. What is your favorite holiday book?
Cranberry Christmas

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
Too many to name. I love Christmas songs.

20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yummy?
Yummy. I love candy canes. All flavors.

I've been trying to add some really cute Christmas pictures from last year, but blogger won't let me! I'll try to add the pics later, cuz they are so cute, but I have to go get ready for my knitting class.

Hi Arleta! I think I misread candy canes for candy yams for a minute. Yummy. You can tell what's on my mind already...Christmas dinner!
Is your email address still working?

I too hate when blogger acts up, most of the time it works like a charm but every once in a while I can't load a picture or post the way I want not matter how hard I try.

Oh well, those gremlins are very pesky.

Happy Knitting

I left blogger last week because I was having photo issues, as well as trouble leaving comments.

Blogger seems very tempermental lately, doesn't it? Cute meme!

Great meme!

I love the christmas tree ornaments made by the kids. My parents tree is still covered in homemade ornaments. It is always weird to me to see trees with no homemade ornaments on them, kinda like they miss out on something.
