Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know ME!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? When giving them, wrapping paper whenever possible –I LOVE pretty packages, and bags are only for odd-shaped gifts! However, receiving them... doesn’t matter!
2. Real tree or Artificial? ARTIFICIAL! Who needs sap to deal with on top of all the rest of the Christmas chaos?
3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the end of November, but this year I’m late!
4. When do you take the tree down? The day after Christmas, if possible. My house looks like Christmas threw-up in it, and I’m OVER it right after the holiday!
5. Do you like eggnog? Nummy!
6. Favorite gift received as a child? My “Real Baby” –it was so awesome!
7. Hardest person to buy for? My mom.
8. Easiest person to buy for? My baby! She won’t remember anything I get her!
9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, a pretty Willow Tree one. I love it.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Always mail. Ooo, need to order my pictures!
11. Favorite Christmas Movie? A CHRISTMAS STORY!!! (“Dad-gummit, BLOW OUT”)
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Oh, man, as soon as I can accept that it’s coming. If I have money, sometimes in October.
14. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Danish Butter Cookies –divine.
15. Lights on the tree? White!
16. Favorite Christmas song? I love most of them, so narrowing it down is a tuffie: “O Come All Ye Faithful”, “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day”, “O Come O Come Emmanuel” and “The First Noel”.
17. Travel at Christmas or stay home? All of the above. Home for the first gift extravaganza, then off to the in-laws for more, then off to my parent’s home for even more. It’s a busy day!
18. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph! -Now gimme a hard question?!
19. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel this year. I’d want to get a star that I really like…
20. Open presents on Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Morning, with the traditional Christmas Eve jammy-fest.
21. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Only the horrible SNOW and COLD that get in the way of all the shopping and fun times!
22.Favorite Ornament theme or color? My tree is Victorian with reds, pinks, golds, and lots of sparkle.
23. Favorite for Christmas dinner? My family’s Christmas Eve tradition: Campbell’s soup –from the Campbell family, who had us over for Christmas Eve dinner the year our garage caught on fire on Christmas Eve morning. That soup represents so much of the generosity and beauty of the season –I look forward to it every year!
24. What do you want for Christmas this year? I have everything I could ever ask for.

A Christmas Story is so classic. That line you put happens to be my favorite one in the whole dang show. You should put a picture up of your victorian tree. It sounds pretty!
