Tagged by...

I am taking the TAG from "Brown English Muffin" although I am going to come up with a name for her is she doesn't give me something to call her soon. I am too slow a typer to keep typing out "Brown English Muffin" and let's be honest here... The abbreviated "BEM" sounds like some kind of bowel movement syndrome or something. LOL. Brown English... you know I am just pickin'. Don't get all "bloody" mad at me... okay, that was my attempt at British sarcasm... hope that's not like a curse word or something in England! (oh yeah, and you all are TAGGED if you read this. Let me know in the comments section if you do it.)

1.Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Egg nog, but just one cup, on CHristmas Eve...
2.Does "Santa" wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrapped of course!
3.Colored lights on tree/house or white? White...
4.Do you hang mistletoe? Yep. just got a new one from my sis.. any reason to trap Micah for a kiss is a good one!!LOL 5.When do you put your decorations up? The day after Thanksgiving... ALWAYS!!
6.What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? My mother in laws Broccoli Casserole
7.Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Going to cut down our own tree... 4 girls, one mother, lots of snide comments, and probably a curse word or two. That is the funny one. The other is singing at church on Christmas Eve... I loved the little candles!
8.When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Ya' know, I don't even remember, so apparently it wasn't too earth shattering for me!
9.Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Not usually.
10.How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? White lights, "old fashioned" looking ornaments,this year we added hand painted eggs that I picked up in Austria. 10.Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it! I stay home and bake!!!
11.Can you ice skate? A bit...
12.Do you remember your favorite gift? Sony headphones in the 5th I thought I was so cool!!!!!!!!!!!
13.What's the most exciting thing about the Holidays for you? The spiritual realization of Christ's birth... it amazes me to think what He gave up to become a helpless baby... We also love the tree decorating, the extra time with family and friends, the happiness of it all...
14.What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Apple pie... I love it- But only HOME MADE!!
15.What is your favorite holiday tradition? I love getting the tree after Thanksgiving. I also enjoy our Christmas Eve dinner. Every year we have a tradtional German meal... YUM! (Sorry Miss Brown English Muffin, no mint jelly here... unless you want it on your sauerkraut???LOL)
16.What tops your tree? The tree topper is an angel that a former student's "Granny" made for me... I love it! 17.Which do you prefer: give or receive? I like BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL... remember I am a 4th child folks!!
18.What is your favorite Christmas Song? Away in the Manger. I love it especially this year as both boys sing it in the back of the car... so cute!!
19. Candy Canes? The honest truth... ugh,this is so humiliating.... I like Candy Canes after a few months in the cookie jar... they get softer and "chewy", and I love them that way. THERE! NOW YOU KNOW...I LIKE OLD,SOFT, CANDY CANES... I realize I may never hear from some of you again once you read that shockingly gross fact about me, but it feels good to come clean.... Happy Holidays... Here are some Holiday album pages... do they make up for the fact that I am a GOCCE? (Gross Old Candy Cane Eater)


  1. "I like Candy Canes after a few months in the cookie jar... they get softer and "chewy", and I love them that way." WTH??? LOL :0( That's nearly as bad as the mint jelly!!!
