Christmas Survey

First things first! Make sure you head over to The Preppy Girl in Pink, and check out the giveaway she has going on now, she's giving away my bows! Make sure you follow her if you don't already, she is awesome! A great bloggy friend!

Now I don't remember where I took this from, I'm awful. I thought I copied their URL, so if it was you, let me know I'll add it!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I'm addicted to chocolate, so definitely hot chocolate. Though Egg Nog milk shakes are delish too!
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? This will be the first year that Santa is stopping by our house, he will have his gifts wrapped, or at least placed into pretty bags that are easy for Miss A to look into and get her toys out of.
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Clear on the tree. I'm not big into the colored lights. No lights up on the house this year, but I'm pretty sure next year they too will be clear.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? No, never have. Not sure that I know anyone that does. Maybe I'll look into that.
5. When do you put your decorations up? SJ made me wait until Black Friday to do it this year. Last year my tree was up the first week in November, I was lonely and bored at home, pregnant, needed something to do.
6. What is your favorite Christmas dish? I love them all, and I get such a variety in my family, Christmas Eve, will have a sandwich/salad potluck at my Grandparent's (my dad's side), Christmas morning will be breakfast at my parent's, I love waffles. Christmas lunch will be Mexican, with my mom's side. Christmas dinner will be whatever SJ's family makes.
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Too many to choose from! I remember the year my parents got us one of those big outside playgrounds, and put it up in our bonus room! We could always play on it rain or shine, I still can't believe we had it in our house! I also remember my dad sprinkling reindeer food with me when I was in elementary school! This year will be great too, it will be our first year with miss A. from!
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? My parents said I was very young and I ruined it for my older cousins. Oops! 
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? We do! My siblings and I all draw names on Thanksgiving and we buy each other a gift and open it Christmas Eve.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Right now I'm in love with snowflakes & icicles! Green, silver, and red ornaments hang out with these cute snowflakes and icicles! Oh and white lights. 
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Love it! I have to. I live in Utah. It snowed till June about 2 years ago. Though traveling more than just a few minutes away is dreadful! People can't drive in the snow!
12. Can you ice skate?HA! That's actually part of one of my posts to come next week! I can't ice skate, the first time I went was with SJ, I held onto the side the WHOLE time. 
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Last year I got pearls from SJ, a necklace & earrings for me, and a bracelet for Miss A. She needs to grow into it but it's her when she can wear it.
14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Being with my family. And this year Miss A is apart of that. I love them so much and everyone is always very nice on Christmas!
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Christmas cookies! Biscochitos, butter cookies. Everything! Love them!


16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? I have a few, I love the Christmas baking, the Christmas Eve gift exchange with my siblings & going to see the Christmas lights with my family. Oh and my mom's family makes gifts for the other families, little Christmas projects, its a great way to show off your creativity, and humor. I think making something is more personal, it's almost better than buying.
17. What tops your tree? Nothing.  Ridiculous right? I haven't found a topper I love. 
18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving?Both.  Receiving, I love to get gifts! Giving, because I love to make stuff for people.
19. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? Yum for the most part. I break them up so I can chew on the pieces, sucking on them is just too messy!
20. Favorite Christmas show? This year, Elf! 
21. Saddest Christmas Song? "Christmas Shoes".
22. What is your favorite Christmas song? Baby It's Cold Outside, Dean Martin of course. & Do you hear what I hear, anyone but I loved the Rosie & Elmo version!
You should do this survey! Oh and remember check out the giveaway, and if you had this on your blog as a linky, let me know!

It took us a while to find a tree topper we really liked - we had one from when we first got married, but then we decided to find a gold one to match the colors of our tree better!

Hey Sara, I'm coming from Kristen's site. It's fun to get to know you a little.

I also love hot chocolate! It's become a daily thing.

And I'm in Utah too. I love snow skiing, but I haven't been in years, so I am very grateful there isn't snow right now. I'm one of those terrible snow drivers!
