For the holiday season, I've borrowed a meme. "The Twelve Questions of Christmas" If you'd like to participate, I'd be honored to have you join in the fun.

1. Christmas is ___Love_____. [fill in the blank with ONE WORD]

2. In memories, what was the best part of your Christmases past? sneaking down early Christmas morning to look at the gifts before waking up my mom

3. Was Santa ever good to you? [describe how and what] oh yeah!! i always get what i want. i guess my fav was a portable CD player with the first lenny kravitz cd. and a members only jacket!!

4. Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or both? one on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas day. but we do santa first for the kids. then go to the in-laws and open there. then come back home and do gifts with sassy and my mom. lots of gift opening. love it!!

5. Is there something you make each and every year? [craft or recipe] white trash (recipe to come later this week)

6. What is your favorite five[5] Christmas songs/hymns? santa baby, the grinch, the first noel, i'm dreaming of a white Christmas, silver bells

7. Is there a new tradition for Christmas since your childhood days? on Christmas eve my hubby and i have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and potato chips and onion dip and watch It's A Wonderful Life. (until my mom started making us come to her house for dinner). and we love to get in the car and drive around and look at Christmas lights. the kids ask every year when we are going to do that. sometimes we do it twice!

8. Describe one of your Christmas trips. [whether it's across town or across country]
we are boring we stay home. all the good people come to us! i never spend Christmas at home as a child so i like to do that now with my own.

9. Do you have a special Christmas outfit to wear for the day? something comfortable since we will be sitting on the floor a lot and eating lots of food!!

10. Have YOU or any of your family members sat on Santa's lap? 5 years ago my sis and i had our picture taken on santa's lap. we gave it to my mom for Christmas. she loved it! and she keeps it out all year long.

11. What is/or will be on your Christmas tree this year? nothing breakable because of psycho cat!! mostly soft ornaments and handmade stuff from the kids

12. Do you/or have you decorated your yard for Christmas? i would love to but have a very busy/lazy husband. he has no time and i don't do ladders.

loved reading your meme and can't wait to get the recipe for white trash. My sister-in-law was looking for her recipe not long ago and couldn't find it. She said everyone loves white trash.

I can understand why you and your hubby don't decorate the outside of your house because you both are really busy. As for me and my hubby, well, there's just no excuse why we don't decorate the outside of our home. Just don't, ha!!

I didn't even read your post yet - I just want to thank you for the holiday tunes! I'm baking tonight - almost done. 1 more kind of cookie to make for preschool for tomorrow. (Already did a cake for tomorrow and rice krispy treats for school for another son's 7th bd tomorrow.) So I am totally enjoying your holiday tunes. Thanks!
Will read it next.
Ho ho ho!
