I saw this over at Mindys and thought it would be fun and maybe get me in the mood to get some decorating going over here.

1. Wrapping Paper or Gift Bags...Mostly wrapping paper but a few bags here and there.
2. Real Tree or artificial...even though I threaten each year to get a fake one I don't think I could really ever do it. I love the smell and look of a real one.
3. When do you put up the tree?..A couple of weeks before Christmas.
4. When do you take the tree down?... Usually after the New Year.
5. Do you like egg nog?... Yucko

7. Hardest person to buy for...Tim's parents
8. Easiest person to buy for...Blake and his cousins
9. Do you have a nativity scene...Yes
10. Mail or email Christmas cards...Mail--It's a dying art and I'm trying to revive it.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?... That would be mean ;o)

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? ... Trying to get it all done and still not forget what it's really all about.

Still recovering over the eggnog comment. In fact, this year they have branched out to pumpkin spice, gingerbread and vanilla spice eggnog. YUMMMMMMMMM!
