Christmas Getting to Know you

Lezlee tagged me for a "getting to know you" quiz and I hadn't gotten around to doing it yet. And now I have this Christmas version from Joyce. I thought it might be fun to do the Christmas version one here! So here goes:

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here's
what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy (not forward) this entire email and paste into a new e-mail that you can send. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you......Tis the Season to be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I like both!

2. Real tree or Artificial? I own a small artificial one, but I really like real ones and have been contemplating several times about whether I should get one this year. Of course I no longer own a tree stand.....

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually as immeadiately after Thanksgiving as I can manage.

4. When do you take the tree down? Sometimes the day after, but at least by New Years.

5. Do you like eggnog? Yes!

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I'm not sure...I remeber a chemistry set I really liked and we had a creepy crawler baker (It made rubber bugs) I really liked.

7. Hardest person to buy for? The Adams and my friend Geoff.

8. Easiest person to buy for? My sisters

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? It depends. I like Christmas morning, but it depends on what is going on with people's schedules. This year I work Christmas and so we will get together on Christmas eve.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? I love this time! I get ready early on and so I don't generally find it stressful. It's the day before Thanksgiving and I have already mailed all the packages that need to go out but one. I've got most of my shopping done. So now I just get to enjoy the season! Love it! My only issue is that there are too many events and things I want to do. I can't fit them all in.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? I like the memories that go with the ornaments I have. There might be a slight them of Childhood, Candy, toys...

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? I like variety, but we usually have turkey or ham.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Not sure, I am enjoying letting myself cook even though I can' eat it. I am enjoying some novelty cake pans. Maybe some cake decorating tools. Clothes are kinda fun now that I've lost so much weight.

26. Who's is most likely to respond to this? Cathy?

27. Who is least likely to respond to this? Hopefully everyone will respond! Either via email or on their blog!

Happy Holidays!
