Five Golden Rings!

I was tagged by my dear blogging friend Jules! I tag ... whoever wants to do this!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper! I love unwrapping presents so very much! I'm not a fan of gift bags at all! Our wrapping paper this year is "Breast Cancer Awareness Themed" It is a pretty silver shiny color with pink ribbons all over it! Aaron even likes it!

2. Real tree or Artificial? I've only ever had an artificial tree. Once we get a house, Aaron says that we can get a real one. However, I'm sure that it is going to be messy and a lot of work ... but it is also going to be AWESOME!

3. When do you put up the tree? We put it up the day after Thanksgiving. It was lighted the next day because we needed to get an extension cord. Unfortunately, Link chewed through the extension cord ... and then he chewed through the light cord. Now we are going to have to get a brand new tree for next year. Hopefully we will by a house by then ... then we can get the REAL tree!

4. When do you take the tree down? The day after new years. Aaron says that that is ENOUGH of tree time!

5. Do you like eggnog? Nope.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Um, I liked all of the presents that I got as a child. But I guess it was probably the Topsy Tail doll I got.

7. Hardest person to buy for? Aaron

8. Easiest person to buy for? Jessica, I always know exactly what to get her!

9. Do you have a nativity scene? No, but I definitely want to get one later!

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail, however we aren't able to do them this year because we didn't take a good picture :(

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I don't think that I've ever gotten a bad Christmas card.

12. Favorite/Worst Christmas Movie? The Nightmare Before Christmas or A Christmas Story!

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Since we have moved to Houston, I start early. There is no going to the malls in December ... no way.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't think that I have .. but I really want to recycle this serving platter that we got that we can't fit ANYTHING in.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Chicken and Sausage Gumbo!!! FOR SURE!!

16. Lights on the tree? Usually, but like I said before ... not this year since Link ate through the cords.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Mary Did You Know!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Traveling to Orange the weekend before Christmas. We'll have Christmas at home this year because Aaron will be working.

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer’s? Yes, I can.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? We had a bow last year ... don't have a topper this year.

21. Open presents on Christmas Eve or morning? When I was younger we always talked my grandparents into letting us open them early and then we got unwrapped "santa" presents in the morning. At Aaron's parents ... we open them Christmas morning and it's wonderful!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Rude people.

23. Favorite ornaments? I like silver and black ones!

24. Stockings? Yes, but I haven't put any up this year because we don't have a Chimney

25. Take turns opening presents? Yes, we get all of our presents in big piles in front of us and then we go around the room opening the gifts one by one so that we can take pictures and ooh and ahh over everyone's gifts!

26. What do you want for Christmas this year? I want new bras and a Charm bracelet!! And Peace and Joy and Happiness!
