It is snowing and I was thinking about this post - I got my Christmas wish last year; this year we may be without my parents when my hubby makes the meatballs he has planned.

Depends on how much snow we get! Enjoy!

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 t o be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Gift bags- unless the hubs gets hold of the gift, I do not wrap.
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial!
3. When do you put up the tree? The weekend after Thanksgiving we decorate inside and out.
4. When do you take the tree down? For sure before SuperBowl.
5. Do you like eggnog? Sure a glass or two.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? The year I got a cool sled and Atari was pretty good, but we almost always got what we wanted from my mom and dad – pretty spoiled I know.
7. Hardest person to buy for? My Mom
8. Easiest person to buy for? Me- I am happy for any gifts as long as some thought was behind them.
9. Do you have a nativity scene? No, but lots of snow globes.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail photo cards first week of December.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? My first Christmas with hubby got WORST and BEST gift – Worst from his mother, a sweatshirt, navy, with snow scene featuring deer. Ummmm, sorry MIL. BEST was from hubs, he got me earrings to match my engagement ring, I cried because I did not expect a thing!!! It was awesome.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? A Christmas Story
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? started already – and know mostly what everyone else is going to get.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No, but I am selling the Brookstone gift card I got from the broken item last year. There just is NOTHING in Brookstone I want.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Those Russian Tea Cake cookies – even the Keebler ones.
16. Lights on the tree? Should always be white, hubs disagrees.
17. Favorite Christmas song? Do they know its Christmas – I was a Senior when it came out. LUV IT>
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Everyone lives here except my Sister’s in-law.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? You Betcha!
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel – ALWAYS!
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Both
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People that seem to forget it is about peace and spending time with those you care about. The gift is the last thing I am worried about- I almost wish we gave it up, but I love watching Boo Boo, Snake and Sair open…, now Nora too!!!
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? White – I used to do an all purple and gold tree – Go Vikes, NOT!
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Fondue steak with green bean hot dish and rice with slivered almonds toasted in butter on top! My parents thought up this tradition to stay home instead of going to grannies I think on Christmas Eve.
25. What do you want for Christmas this year? My hubby to make sliders on Christmas day, lay around and watch movies with my parents.
26. Who is most likely to respond to this? Anyone?

I got this e-mail last week, sent it out...and have to say the responses are interesting.

If I sat next to you on the sofa and watched movies with you, would your husband just keep feeding us sliders like a momma bird keeps feeding her chicks? Because if you could arrange that, I'd totally be up for it.

The hubs said he will cater to whomever shows up...if you want to brave the cold!!! ;)

If we didn't have so much snow, I'd trudge over to your place so you guys could feed me.
