A Christmas Meme

I came across this fun little Christmas meme over at Alas Three Lads and I thought I would play along...

1. Have you started your Christmas shopping? Yes, I shop all year. When I see something that I know is perfect for that certain someone, I pick it up and it goes into a spreadsheet and then into a bin.

2. Tell me about one of your special traditions. The boy and I celebrate Christmas Eve with my family. We usually do this at my parents house, for the first year, we will do it at my house this year. We open all of our presents from one another, with breaks for a smorgasbord of appetizers, soups and treats in-between. We go to a children's service around 5 and the midnight candlelit mass with just my mom and dad and a couple of family friends. Christmas morning we usually go to my parents (in our pajamas) to get our stockings from Santa and see what Santa brought the kids at my parents house. Then we have breakfast, the boy and I head out, get ready for the day and then spend Christmas day with his family.

3. When do you put up your Tree? Usually a day or so after Thanksgiving

4. Are you a Black Friday shopper? Sometimes, if there is something specific or special that I need or want. This year we got a new big, tv.

5. Do you travel at Christmas or stay home? Don't go far.

6. What is your funniest Christmas memory? Finding my Jordache jeans with the horse on the back pocket in 6th grade. I was SO excited!

7. What is your favorite Christmas movie of all time? The Grinch. The key party always cracks me up.

8. Do you do your own Christmas baking, what’s your favorite treat? I do a big cookie baking with a bunch of girlfriends, its coming up on Sunday. One of my girlfriends and her husband own a pizza parlor on the U of M campus, they are closed on Sunday's. So about 20 of us get together, bring champagne, snacks, cookie cutters, sprinkles and decorations, and work together to bake a TON of cookies!

9. Fake or Real Tree? Fake pre-lit tree, I love it.

10. What day does the actual panic set in to get it all done? I just go with the flow. In the past I have rushed to get it all done.

11. Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve? Sometimes.

12. What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas? The day that the boy and I pick to have a nice dinner together and open our presents from one another in peace and quiet once the hub bub has died down.

13. What Christmas craft do you like the best? I am not GG, not so crafty.

14. Christmas music? (Yes or No) If yes, what is your favorite song? Heck yeah, as much as possible. I don't have just one favorite, I love them all.

15. When do you plan to finish all of your shopping? Probably within the next week or so. . .I did do some online shopping as well.

I tag you!
