Karie over at The Five Fish tagged us with this Christmas MeMe. So, here are my answers.
1.) Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yes, I try to start picking things up in the summer. When Christmas rolls around, my closet is usually jam packed.
2.) Tell me about one of your special traditions.
My favorite thing is Christmas morning. Coffee for us, cocoa for the kids, everyone in pj’s and just enjoying one another.
3.) When do you put up your Tree?
Anytime after Thanksgiving!
4.) Are you a Black Friday shopper?
Not really. I went once later in the morning and wasn’t very impressed. I’d rather shop online, and find awesome deals that way.
5.) Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
Once in awhile we go to my sister’s house, nothing huge. We generally stay home.
6.) What is your funniest Christmas memory?
When my daughter, then 6 seen Santa out back and flipped out, nearly broke my finger, and didn’t know whether to scream, hide, run, or what! I’ll never forget it.
7.) What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tree, can’t remember the exact name.
8.)Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
We bake. There are so many to choose just one favorite, but I think my favorite would have to be peanut butter chocolate bars.
9.) Fake or Real Tree?
Fake. I remember as a child Mom had a real tree and pine needles everywhere! Must have traumatized me.
10.) What day (as a Mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
I really don’t set into a panic over the Holidays.
11.) Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
I have been known to wrap presents right before bed on Christmas Eve.
12.) What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
See above, Christmas morning coffee, cocoa, and one another.
13.) What Christmas craft do you like the best?
Stringing popcorn! And, Cinnamon ornaments, Casey over at A Couch With A View posted her craft recipe, and it’s on my todo list for today. I have never tried to tackle these, so it should be fun. Extraordinary Morsel Monday
14.) Christmas music. Yes or No, and if yes What is your favorite song?
Yes, hubby can’t stand the slow, soft songs. So we play the more up beat songs, like Jingle Bell Rock.
15.) When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
It’s all done!
