Now for the 12 Questions of Christmas!

1. If you could receive anything for Christmas, no strings attached, what would you want?

I dream of having one of those big, beautiful Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixers with all of the lovely attachments!


2. If you could give your hubby one present, money is no object, what would you give him?

For my hubby, I think that I would love to give him a couple of weeks of vacation, traveling the east coast with a stop at his brother’s.

3. If you could give your kids anything for Christmas, no strings attached, what would you give them?

For D-man…I would love to be able to give him a nice lump of cash…to spend on whatever his heart desired!
For Lil man…I would get him that PS4 that he dreams of, plus a few games.
For my Lil miss…I would get her a top of the line digital drawing tablet, because she loves to draw.

4. Who is better at wrapping presents, you or your hubby?

I am! LOL! My honey bunny tends to get a bit OCD about his wrapping!

5. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Well…Now this one is not really officially a “Christmas” movie, but they always show it at Christmas time…Rudolph’s Shiny New Year! I just love baby Happy!

How can you not love that face!?!

How can you not love that face!?!

6. What is your favorite Christmas song?

Now, twinsie, you know that I can never pick only one song! LOL! So here is my top 4…

Band-Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas

Pentatonix – Mary Did You Know?

Elvis Presley – Mama Liked the Roses…though it is not officially a Christmas song, I still love it!

And…Trans-Siberian Orchestra – Christmas Eve / Sarajevo

7. What is one thing that is ALWAYS on your holiday table?

We do a bit of an untraditional Christmas dinner…All finger foods…cheese, crackers, summer sausage, ham slices, maybe a cheese ball, cookies, maybe some chex mix, and whatever other goodies that I make.

8. Cookies! Do you have a special cookie that you bake for the holidays?

Not really…I try to make chocolate chip for sure…and I love oatmeal cookies and peanut butter cookies…and of course Rum Balls…though I have not made them for years!

9. Do you have a big Holiday party, or is it small and intimate?

Oh definitely small…it will just be the hubby and I and the kids…D-man will come by and so will Cleavis and his fiance!

10. Santa, does he visit your house?

Yes…I still try to keep the magic alive for lil miss!

11. Do you or did you leave out cookies?

Oh absolutely!

12. What does Christmas mean to you?

Hmm…this one is hard for me…Christmas is not really my favorite time of year…but for a more positive spin…it means that I get to spend time with all of my kids and for me there is nothing better than that!
