The Christmas Eve Eve Post

 Gingerbread house making with Aunt Abbey

I am on vacation with my family in Michigan. Sadly, there is no snow, but it is still good to be home. Jack is desperately waiting for some snow. Since I am out and about, I thought I would do just a simple post about Christmas and my traditions. I linked up with Mrs.B for this fun little Christmas list.

 I am knee deep in sweet potatoes and about to embark on some cookies, so I will leave you with this.

 Eggnog or hot chocolate? Hot chocolate, or better yet, hot chocolate made with coffee instead of milk.

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? I wrap presents. You will have to ask Santa.

Colored lights on tree/house or white? I love blue for the tree and white for the house. Husband likes white everything. Our tree is fake and white.

Do you hang mistletoe? I wish I had some to hang!

When do you put your decorations up? Just after Thanksgiving.

What is your favorite holiday dish? Ham with cheesy potatoes and homemade lady finger rolls.

Favorite holiday memory as a child? Going to Grandma's house on the river.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Never believed in Santa, just liked to watch the movies.

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Just one before bed.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Well, we have a fake with white lights. I have all my old ornaments and the kid's ornaments on it. Kinda rustic but fun.

Snow! Love it or dread it? Love it. I only really get it when I am Michigan, so love it. (Right now there is NO snow and I am sad.)

Can you ice skate? I can, but I don't get to do it very often.

Do you remember your favorite gift? I am sure some type of clothes or something.

What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you? Being with family, celebrating Jesus' birth,eating loads of food...

What is your favorite holiday dessert? Frosted sugar cookies

What is your favorite holiday tradition? Going to Grandma's house or slowly opening the gifts one at a time.

What tops your tree? A little gold star. We need something more substantial next year!

 Which do you prefer: giving or receiving?  I love to give gifts. I love to pick out just the right thing. I also like to get them :)

Candy canes: yuck or yummy? They are fine.

Favorite Christmas show? It's a Wonderful Life

Saddest Christmas song? The horrible one with the kid buying his dying mom shoes.

What is your favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night and than Carol of the Bells.

Ok. So what are some of YOUR favorites?

It is Christmas Eve Eve!
