Christmas List

Over at Tongue in Cheek, the wonderful Corey posted this list yesterday, with her own answers of course. (Be warned: Her blog is so delightful it is utterly addictive!) So, I thought, what a fun idea, I'll do it too.

Here goes...

Christmas List

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I prefer wrapping paper, but bags are good in a pinch.

2. Real tree or artificial? Real, purchased from our local Kiwanis who sell the trees as a community fundraiser.

3. When do you put up the tree? The second weekend in December, so it is not losing all it's needles by Christmas.

4. When do you take the tree down? Usually the weekend after New Year's.

5. Do you like eggnog? Oh yes! I'll drink a warm cup of it almost daily Thanksgiving through January 1st.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Barbie van.

7. Hardest person to buy for? My husband.

8. Easiest person to buy for? My daughter.
