A few “Getting to know you” Christmas Questions…

Dec 6, 2007

Here is a fun “Get­ting to know you” Christ­mas ques­tion­naire. My sis­ter sent this to me so I thought I would share it with all of you. I am mak­ing a few orna­ments that I will share with you tomor­row. They are easy and fun to make. Oh and this is for my friend Pat­ti.… you will be hap­py to know it will be 80 degrees here in Frisco tomor­row! It was only 7 degrees at her place last night. Talk about put anoth­er log on the fire.

1. Wrap­ping paper or gift bags? Wrap­ping Paper… Ter­ri and Ans­ley are not trust­wor­thy for gift bags!
2. Real tree or arti­fi­cial? We have an Arti­fi­cial
3. When do you put up the tree? Every year is dif­fer­ent. Ours is going up this week­end.
4. When do you take the tree down? If you look in the Win­ter Issue of Scrap­book­ing and Beyond you will dis­cov­er that last year it was MARCH!
5. Do you like eggnog? Yes, but my Dad’s is my favorite.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? When I was around 4 or 5 I got a Baby Etchn Sketch Doll (the name is some­thing like that) I loved that doll and wish I could find one.

10. Worst Christ­mas Gift you ever received? Hon­est­ly, I have nev­er received a gift I did­n’t like.
11. Mail or email Christ­mas cards? Mail, I feel some things should be done the “old fash­ioned” way and mail­ing Christ­mas Cards is one of them.
12. Favorite Christ­mas Movie? It’s a Won­der­ful Life
13. When do you start shop­ping for Christ­mas? Decem­ber and yes I tell myself every year that I am not going to wait until Decem­ber to start shop­ping and here I sit once again with not a gift pur­chased.
14. Have you ever recy­cled a Christ­mas present? Nev­er
15. Favorite things to eat at Christ­mas? Mom’s Peanut But­ter Fudge and my Chewy Choco­late Chip cook­ies and Pecan Sandies
16. Clear lights or col­ored on the tree? Every year has always been white but this year Ans­ley has talked me into C7 col­ored lights like they have on the trees in Hol­lis­ter, one of her favorite stores.
17. Favorite Christ­mas song? Holy Night is my absolute favorite and it does­n’t mat­ter who sings it.
18. Trav­el at Christ­mas or stay home? Have trav­eled every year but I’m try­ing to talk my Mom and Dad into com­ing up here this year!
19. Can you name all of San­ta’s rein­deer? Well of course I can.. you know my Dad is San­ta don’t you?
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Nei­ther, I have a real­ly cool vin­tage glass top­per that the girls can­not stand but I LOVE!
21. Open the presents Christ­mas Eve or morn­ing? When the girls were lit­tle we opened one on Christ­mas eve and the rest Christ­mas morn­ing, now we cel­e­brate on Christ­mas Eve. I love the room dark with just the glow from our tree and a few years ago it actu­al­ly snowed here on Christ­mas Eve. It was the most mag­i­cal Christ­mas ever and one I will nev­er for­get.
22. Most annoy­ing thing about this time of year? Rude peo­ple just don’t get this at all. I under­stand we are all stressed but being rude cer­tain­ly does­n’t make it any bet­ter.
23. What is the “sil­li­est” fam­i­ly tra­di­tion you do, or miss doing? We don’t have one that is real­ly sil­ly but I do usu­al­ly have one of the girls on some sort of crazy trea­sure hunt to find their gift. Not sure who my vic­tim will be this year.

25. Which looks best, theme trees or homey trees? I love both
26. Gin­ger­bread or sug­ar cook­ies? Sug­ar Cook­ies to me, Gin­ger­bread is for Hous­es
