Christmas Survey

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Both! At Seagull Book they have a huge gift wrap collection for normally $60....for $7.99. There is probably some leftover if you live by a Seagull Book. (its a boatload of stuff that will last me years) Here is just a few of them:

2. Real tree or Artificial?
Fake!!! Real ones are too much maintenance

3. When do you put up the tree?
This year we did it the week after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down?
We'll see I guess!

5. Do you like eggnog?
Its ok...I like a little sip or two

6. Favorite gift received as a child?
Well I ALWAYS wanted a power wheels, but never got one. They told me I wouldn't want it when I grew up but I knew they were wrong...I still think they are fricken awesome

7. Hardest person to buy for?
My Brother in Law, Lee....It's because he buys himself stuff all the time, so he has what he wants. So from now on I think I will gift the whole family :)

8. Easiest person to buy for?
My mom probably...

9. Do you have a nativity scene?
No...I wish!

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
People appreciate the personal touch ;)

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
One of my friend in elementary gave me a little sandwich baggy with three little marshmallows (snowman poop)

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
The Holiday

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
I always have a less stressful holiday when I start at least a month in advance, but lately, its been a couple weeks into December.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
I don't believe so...

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Christmas treats...Probably Theresa's Toffee bars!

16. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
Shrimp, Crab Legs...There is only going to be three of us this year; My Mom, Josh, and I! We can eat whatever we want!

17. Favorite Christmas song?
Carol of the Bells

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
I don't care as long as I'm with family.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen
I had to sing the song in my head...

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
We don't have anything...Josh is particular and doesn't like the way they are cheaply made these days. I agree though!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
In the morning for SURE with kids. It doesn't matter as much now, we both know what we got each other except what's in the stockings (which we'll do christmas morning)

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
People who say "Oh my gosh...so and so ONLY got me THIS. How CHEAP."
I don't have any friends like that but just hearing about it makes me cringe. I'll have to admit I was like that as a young teen. I didn't understand finances. I thought my parents were holding out on me.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color?
I don't really believe in matching themes or colors. I think ANYTHING goes well together.

24. What do you want for Christmas this year?
A Flirty Apron...and at my work we had to go around and say what we wanted, so I said that, and my boss goes "um, do you cook in it?" So everyone was makin fun of me that it was somethin sexy... They didnt really believe me so they wanted to know if there was a website. It didnt help the homepage looks like this:

And I'm still hearing about it...

25. Who do I want to fill this out and post it on their blog?

And also, I have GOT to share my experience today with our present swap at work. If you are an OFFICE fan you will get this... We honestly played YANKEE SWAP.
It was almost like playing out the episode. I never noticed it but my boss is SO much like Michael Scott. She got two gifts stolen from her and when she opened each of those up she made a face that looked like she smelled poop or something (a $25 applebees giftcard, and a christmas decoration). On the last present she opened up it was deluxe Phase 10. She was like "What makes it so deluxe?! Game includes: Card Separator and board?" She made the brattiest face. I felt so bad for whoever brought that!!!
At the beginning of the game when I found out what we were playing, I immediately protested saying it would hurt somebodies feelings. That same boss said "Oh we play this every year nobody's feelings ever get hurt." Yeah because you're hurting the feelings! I have co-workers who read this, I don't care, I'm sure they agree with me.
But I got such an AWESOME present!!!

They are little games! AND pens!!! I LOVE IT!
I bet they'd make great stocking stuffers!...(I hear you get them at Costco)

I tried to convince my mom to buy me those game pens ( I LOVE THEM!) and she wouldn't...rude.
