Yeah Christmas!!!!

Christmas is Awesome!!!

I got my Handsome man cool gifts this year. Though one that he was really excited about was that he finally had a "PAIR" of socks to wear!! He loves them so!! It makes my heart burst to know he's already been enjoying them all day!!

One of the most awesome gifts I got him this year was a Garmin! Since it was such a cool gift and so small I made sure he would take his time opening it!! I had a video but unfortunetly it's a little too big to put on blogger. I'll see what I can do. I'll tell you this though, he had to open 6 boxes, all of them wrapped and all visible corners and edges were scotched taped. Go ahead and feel sorry for him, but I had to make it worth his wild!!!

Now for some random Christmas Stuff.....

Holiday Meme
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping. Just because it takes time and you can make people really struggle for it!

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. I got my very own first tree when I lived in the dorms, I doubt a real one would be allowed in our rooms at the time.

3. When do you put up the tree? The day after Thanksgiving. I hate Black Friday so I make it a point to occupy myself at home.

4. When do you take the tree down? ?? It usually depends on how busy we are after Christmas.

5. Do you like eggnog? A little, add a tad bit of rum and I’m good!! I like Moose Milk better!!!(Moose Milk is an alcoholic seasonal drink that our Canadian counterparts would make for us every year)

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Nintendo!!! You can’t beat an original, the new systems have too many buttons…(this coming from the woman who likes to play World of Warcraft!). But my sewing machine from mom 2 years ago was pretty cool!!!

7. Hardest person to buy for? My Dad. He has everything he could need and doesn’t really ever want anything. It’s hard to get something he’ll use and like. This year I got him a cool blanket that I made him!

8. Easiest person to buy for? Justin really. I pay attention to what he wants and needs throughout the year that it’s not hard to come up with something. It gets harder when it comes to electronics though.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? I use to help my mom set up the one back home. It was about 6ft by 6ft, it was huge!! I loved it!! I want to get one when we have a house so that I can actually get a whole corner set up for it.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I think I like hugs best, but if I had to choose I’d say Christmas cards. Though I can never get to mass sending, only a select few people actually get them.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I don’t recall. Maybe some kind of weird clothing I bet. If it was bad I’m pretty sure I’d try to erase it from my memory.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Miracle on 34th Street

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Beginning of November really, more like midmonth. I like to beat the crowds.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? More like White Elephant re-gifting. You get something from the party and use it as a gift later.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cookies.

16. Lights on the tree? Darn Skippy!

17. Favorite Christmas song? “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas!”

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Travel. With me out of the military and jobless, the wedding last month, and Christmas landing on a Thursday we decided against driving to El Paso for Parents and Dallas for my Brother. Traffic would have been hectic on Christmas Eve since Justin was working that day, and plane tickets to Oregon would have been expensive as heck.

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? Dasher, Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Blitzen, Comet, Cupid Vixen!

20. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Morning of course! It’s fun waking everybody up to open gifts!!!

21. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People fighting to get prime parking spots and gifts. It takes all the cheer out of this holiday.

22. Favorite ornament theme or color? We have tradition each year, I get Justin a kitty ornament and he gets me a puppy ornament.

23. What do you want for Christmas this year? I wanted a puppy and I got one!!!

24. Angel on the tree top or a star? Right now it’s really a snowflake I painted. Different and cool!

25. Favorite Christmas dinner? Turkey of course!!!
