1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I like either... Bags are way easier and faster but paper is so much more fun to unwrap!
2. Real tree or Artificial?
I really love real trees! When we were younger we would take a whole day and travel up into Michigan and cut down our own tree and have hot chocolate etc... Those were some good memories! Once we got older we just went to having an artificial tree (and they are pretty too) but I definitely want to get real trees when I have my own family!
3. When do you put up the tree?
Well we always do it on a Saturday usually the week after Thanksgiving...
4. When do you take the tree down?
Usually the week after New Years...its always sad! :(
5. Do you like eggnog?
Well, I never did...or at least I didn't think I did b/c I had never tried it but then last Christmas I had some eggnog ice cream and I loved it!! But I still haven't had the courage to actually drink it...maybe I'll try that this year! Does anyone know if it taste anything like eggnog ice cream?
6. Favorite gift received as a child?
I'm not sure...We always had very nice Christmas'!! Now that I think about it probably the best gift was when I got my very own American Girl Doll...
7. Hardest person to buy for?
My Dad...he gets himself anything he wants..lol..and he is very picky!!!! He has to pick out his own clothes, even his socks have to be these exact certain ones....so usually we have to listen to him when we are shopping and anything that he comments on in a positive way we get for him!
8. Easiest person to buy for?
My fiance...b/c he will like anything that's from me...LOL...at least he better :)
9. Do you have a nativity scene?
Oh YES!! We have had the same one since we were little...I love it! My parents went on a cruise in the Mediterranean Sea a couple of years ago and actually got a new one from Israel..its really neat too (carved wood) so now we put up both!
10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
My Mom has always mailed them!! I am very excited for next year so that we can do our very own! I will be sure to keep up this tradition!
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
hmm...I'm not sure....The only thing I can think of were these REALLY ugly slippers that my Grandma got me and my cousins one Christmas...they were really really ugly...lol

17. Favorite Christmas song?
I love most Christmas music...although that Mr. Grinch song really really really annoys me..lol...seriously! But I love Silent Night, O Holy Night, Little Drummer Boy, Christmas Shoes, The First Noel and many more.....
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
Well..there are mixed emotions about this! We always traveled at Christmas but I think when I have children I want to be home for Christmas Day...its a hard decision though b/c I really love being with family on Christmas too! But I really want to have some fun traditions with my own family...

22. Most annoying part about this time of year?
That Mr. Grinch song...hahaha.....and I'm going to ditto Valerie...and in my own words say...It's annoying that it is such a big deal when we use the phrase "Merry Christmas"
23. Favorite ornament theme or color?
Every year since we were born my Grandma Meeker has gotten everyone on our side of the family a Hallmark ornament and I love them... those are my favorite type of ornaments...
25. What do you want for Christmas this year?
I'm not really the type to be picky..I love anything people give me! One thing I really wanted is to spend this Christmas with my fiance (he usually goes back to Cali for the break) and he is staying!! So YAY!!! I already got what I want..anything else will be a bonus!!
