Getting To Know Your Friends - Christmas Edition

Ok, ok, it is my turn...

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping Paper

2. Real tree or Artificial? Real, although tempted by the fakes.

3. When do you put up the tree? It depends. Give or take a couple weeks after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down? January 1st.

5. Do you like eggnog? Never tried it.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? hmmmm, can't think of one.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, one porceline one that will stay in a box for a few years, and one Little People one that is on its way thanks to my Mother-In-Law.

8. Hardest person to buy for? My Dad

9. Easiest person to buy for? Hubby, he gives me a very detailed list. 2nd, Princess.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail

11.Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Underware that was intended for my brother, my Mom has a habit of not putting names on things and assuming that she knows which one is which.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Day after Thanksgiving.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Eve with the In-Laws, Christmas morning with the fam.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? So this is going to sound awful, and I do give money to charities I know during the holidays, but the solicitation calls from Unknown numbers in the name of the holidays. Oh and the THOUSANDS of return address labels I get in the mail.

23. What do you want for Christmas this year? I like Erin's idea, $35,000. But other than that I wanted a cross necklace, and a PDA, and I got them. Oh and I need some bras for my post-second baby floppy boobs.

24. Favorite ornament theme or color? Ummmm, let's see, a little less than the Santa throwing up Christmas all over my tree theme.

25. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Turkey, but I am starting to like this whole Prime Rib theme I see going on!

Join in the fun!!! Copy and post it on your blog too...

December Catch Up

Ok Ladies,
It has been awhile, and there is so much to tell! I am not feeling very creative so a list is in tow. Here is what has been happening in Hosmeritaville;

1. Went Christmas shopping with 2 different shoes on!
2. Got in BIG trouble when hubby read this blog.
3. Big apologies made on my part...
4. The kiddos are BOTH sick and on meds.
5. Got together with MOPS Steering Team the other night, I miss them all. I wonder if they will let me back in their club.
6. Opened 2 Christmas gifts from hubby already, in exchange for him getting to play with his Playstation 3. So I am now super organized with one of these, and loving it. And I now have a very pretty cross necklace that I have always wanted.
7. Oh yeah, and the main reason I got to open 2 gifts early is because... wait for it... a little longer...



I will try to be more creative next time.

Take Care,
