Happy Holidaze!

Ho! Ho! Ho!  To get in the holiday spirit, I am linking up with Michelle from  Fabulous in First to answer some fun holiday questions! 

Hot Chocolate or Eggnog? 
I'm a total chocoholic!  I love hot chocolate.  Throw in as many marshmallows as possible, please!  I love when you get to the bottom of the mug and all that is left is the ooey gooey marshmallow goodness!  

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree? 
My husband and I discuss this question EVERY Christmas!  When I was growing up, Santa was way to busy to wrap presents!  He left goodies under the tree.  Unwrapped.  I wonder if  Santa did this so we didn't have to wake up Mom and Dad early in the morning?  

If you ask my husband this question, I know he will tell you a different story!  ;)

 Colored lights or white?
 I love white lights!  Classic!  

When do you decorate? 
I have to eat turkey before I decorate.  I can't look at Christmas things in the store until the day after Thanksgiving. No, I did not go out shopping on Thanksgiving!  I can only do one holiday at a time!    

Real or Fake Tree? 
When I was a kid, we always went to a tree farm and chopped down a tree.  Over the years, I have developed a terrible allergy to trees.  I touch a Christmas tree and break out in hives.  It's awful.  I get allergy shots... meds...  it's awful.  I'm itching now, just thinking about it.   While I do miss the smell of a real tree, a fake tree isn't that bad.  No needles.  No watering the tree.  Sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, ya know?

What Tops Your Tree? 
We have an angel on the top of our tree.  It was given to my by my nana.  Love it.

Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions? 
I love baking.  I bake for days over the holidays.  My all time favorite, must bake Christmas treat would have to be Thumbprint Cookies.  I use my Great Grandmother's recipe.  They are buttery goodness filled with butter cream frosting.  To. Die. For.  My dad says he won't let me in the door if I don't bring them on Christmas!  

Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?  
I would like to say that it was the Barbie Dream House.  You know the one.  It had an elevator. I would really like to say that....  but I can't.  I never had one.  I wasn't allowed to have a Barbie.  Can you believe it?  Not allowed.  I can't talk about it.  I'm still in therapy about it.   (insert violin music here....)  

Do prefer giving or receiving?
 Giving for sure!  I think that I would have made a great elf.  And isn't that what Christmas is all about?

What is your favorite Christmas song?
Winter Wonderland

 Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
Yum!  I love anything peppermint!  Especially around the holidays!

 Favorite Christmas Movie? 
A Christmas Story.   Hands down.  The end.

Do you shop online or at stores?
Both.  Online is so much easier.  No crowds.  You can stay in your comfy cozies.  Drink coffee and click away. There are times you just have to go out and get in the mix of the hustle and bustle.  

 Photo Cards, Letter or Store Bought Card? 
I love photo cards.  It's great to see all of my friend's kids!  Sometimes I have them on the fridge all year! 

The holidays are all about giving.  So, I have a gift for all of my blog world friends!  My kiddos have been having fun writing letters to Santa and I thought I would share all of the fun with you, too!  There are two graphic organizers, each with a different topic.  Students may choose to tell Santa how they have been a good boy or girl, or they may tell him all of their Christmas wishes.  There are also two types of writing paper to choose!  Enjoy!  Click HERE to get it!

I have five more "wake ups" until Christmas vacation!   Whoo Hoo!   No big plans for me.  I just want a little R & R! 

I'd love to hear what you have planned this holiday season!   

Don't forget to head over to Fabulous in First to link up!
