Merry Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you! :) I hope you’ve had a great day so far and continue to enjoy the Christmas spirit throughout the weekend.

Here’s a cute little survey I saw over on Mindy’s (Road Runner Girl) blog and decided to fill it out, too! Enjoy! :)

Christmas Decor (3)

Egg Nog or hot chocolate?
Both! :)

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa wrapped presents when I was a child, so we’ve kept that tradition going!

Colored lights on tree/house or white?
I’ve always been a fan of white lights. My brother and I would get in arguments over which set belonged on the tree…so we took turns each year.

Do you hang mistletoe?
Of course! :)

When do you hang your decorations up?
Well, I usually get antsy and decorations go up a week or two before Thanksgiving. I love Christmas and want to enjoy it for as long as possible!

What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)
My mom’s sweet potato casserole! It’s delicious!!

Favorite holiday memory as a child?
My brother and I used to have “operation Santa” every year, complete with walkie-talkies and a game plan. Our plan was to try and see Santa, but it never failed…we always fell asleep!

What is on your Christmas wish-list?
KT Tape, a Mickey Waffle iron, Alex & Ani, and something shiny” (seriously, that’s what I wrote…haha!)

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
No, never have…I want Christmas to last as looooong as possible!

How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Mostly Hallmark ornaments that I’ve collected over the years.

Snow? Love it or dread it?
I’ve only experienced true snow one time – it was in Oklahoma for a friend’s wedding and it was literally a blizzard. I’ve never had a White Christmas although I do think it would be fun! :)

Real tree or fake tree?

Do you remember your favorite gift?
I sure don’t…but each year I’ve received great presents from family and friends so they are all favorite to me!

Christmas Decor (18)

What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you?
Celebrating the true reason of the season, the main reason we celebrate this holiday to begin with – the birth of Christ.

Christmas Decor (10)

What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Reindeer Food…it’s soooo yummy!

What is your favorite tradition?
Watching Christmas Vacation with the family after eating Christmas Dinner.

Which do you prefer, giving or receiving?
I love to give! I always try to think of something special or a meaningful gift – and I love the look on their face when they open their gifts. Makes my heart happy!  :) I also like receiving gifts too, of course…but mostly giving!

Christmas Decor (21)

What is your favorite Christmas song?
Silver Bells – I used to take piano lessons (from my now mother-in-law)…weird, right? Well, we had a Christmas concert one year and that’s the song I requested!  I also like the NSYNC and Plus One Christmas albums and pretty much any song on either one of those!

Christmas Decor (22)

Candy canes, yuck or yum?
LOVE LOVE LOVE! Peppermint is my favorite! The cherry flavored ones are pretty good, too!

Favorite Christmas Movie?
The Holiday and Mickey’s Christmas Carol

Do you have a Christmas morning tradition?
Eating Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls, opening gifts, and watching the Disney Parks Christmas Day parade!

Christmas Decor (23)
(Snow globe collection from JCPenney on Black Friday since 2000!)

Do you prefer to shop online or at the mall?
The Mall! Black Friday is one of my favorite days of the year!

Christmas Decor (4)

Christmas letter or Christmas card?
Cards…I love sending them out! :) This year, I displayed a Christmas card from each year we’ve been married!

    1. Thanks, Karen...I hope you had a great Christmas!

  3. Tell your brother I vote with you - white lights for sure.

  4. Your photos are gorgeous Karen and the Mickey wreath is adorable. We have so many similar traditions and no opening on Christmas Eve here either. We actually watch each person open one at a time so everyone gets to enjoy the gifts.

    1. We do the same with gifts!! I love doing it that way, that way everyone can enjoy them! Thanks, Pam!!

  5. LOVE your Christmas Mickey Wreath.
