Okay, Jaci tagged me, so here goes!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Eggnog. Especially with rum and cognac:)
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrapped. And like so many moms, I ended up doing that myself. Ho ho ho.
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? colored
4. Do you hang mistletoe? No.
5. When do you put your decorations up? Second week of CHristmas, unless my daughter gets a bee in her bonnet and does it earlier:)
6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Fudge, fudge and more fudge.
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: Thinking that the lights and celebrations were all about me. (My birthday is the 22nd:)
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Eight. Friend told me.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Nope.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? The same old, same old. Ornaments that have more memories than class:)
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Hate it. Cold. Can't drive.
12. Can you ice skate? Yes, but not as often as my daughter does. Somehow spending a gazillion hours in a rink at 6 am take the fun out of it.
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? One of those barbie heads that you put makeup on.
14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Watching my children.
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Pecan pie.
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Watching all the Christmas Movies with my kids. Especially White Christmas with my teenage daughter who has an inexplicable love for old musicals.
17. What tops your tree? A homemade cross.
18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? Giving to my kids. Such a blast. It makes the same magic you felt as a kid come back.
19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Anything on the Kingston Trio's Chrsitmas Album. It just isn't Christmas until I hear their mind blowing harmonies.
20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum? Yuck.. but I eat them anyway. LOL

Let me see... I tag Rachel, Kerry and Elizabeth:)

Pecan pie and fudge...I'm going to be thinking about that for the rest of the day ;)

You are an evil woman. I'll have you know after reading your blog I had to go make fudge today. My kids thank you. My thighs do not.

I did mine too.

Eggnog with rum.....yummy!

And I see your daughter is like mine with a love for the old Christmas movies. Ashley loves White Christmas. *g*

I hear you on the fudge and hating driving in the snow. I refuse to do it unless absolutely necessary.

I thought this was such a good idea, I had to do it on my blog, too, even though you didn't tag me. :-) I LOVE "White Christmas." I'm taking my sister to see the musical production of it with me at the Fifth Avenue Theatre here in Seattle next Saturday night. Can't wait! No better way to put you in the holiday spirit!
