Vacation and a meme

Schools out for Christmas and I couldn't be happier! Today was quiet and relaxing. I watched a little TV, cooked a little and even felt like cleaning some – all this intermingled with napping, and playing on the computer.

Wish me luck for later today. Mollie has decided I’m going to someone new to do my hair. I usually color it myself and I think that fine but she is less than impressed so – gulp – I am putting myself in her hands and going to her hairdresser. I hope it doesn't turn out like this. I’ll let you know.

Meanwhile, I found (and stole) this meme right off Grace’s site. We used to put up meme quite often the old days. I hope some of the newer bloggers will do this. It’s just a fun way to get to know a little more about each other.

Here goes...

1.Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?

Probably Egg Nog, I like cold drinks better than hot. But that doesn’t mean I’d turn down a good hot chocolate if it were offered.


2.Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Nope, Santa doesn’t wrap. They are there and sparkling when we walk in the room.

3.Colored lights on tree/house or white?
We only have white lights but I really like color lights too.

4.Do you hang mistletoe?
No, but we pretend a lot!

5.When do you put your decorations up?
I’m usually slow so by the middle of December. This year I’ll leave them up longer until the boys come for Christmas early in January.

6.What is your favorite holiday dish?
Favorite? Are you kidding – I love so many, hmmmm… moist turkey and really good rice and gravy.

7.Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
Peeping under the living room door with my mom and sister waiting. Dad would go in first ‘to see if Santa left anything’. If he had he would turn the lights on, if not he’d leave them off and we would all go back to bed. In reality he was sitting up his movie camera and turning on the flood lights.

8.When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I was probably only 2 or 3 when Mama and Daddy told me all about him. He lived at the North Pole, had a beard, wore red, had elves that made toys and drove a sled with flying reindeer to bring presents.

9.Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
Christmas Eve with Nick’s family, Christmas morning with our little family, and Christmas afternoon with the rest of my family.

10.How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
All different kinds of ornaments – no one theme. My favorites are the one the kids made when they were little with their pictures in them.

11.Snow! Love it or Dread it?
Love it, unless we have to travel far or LJ is trying to get here from NY.

12.Can you ice skate?
Don’t think so and I’m not going to try. I like all my bones just where they are now thank you!

13.Do you remember your favorite gift?
One year I got a toy machine gun and a beautiful baby doll and I loved them both dearly.

14.What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
The family, all the way. This will be our first year without LJ and I am going to miss him terribly.

15.What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
Pumpkin pie with whipped cream.


16.What tops your tree?
An angel

17.Which do you prefer giving or receiving?
I’m a big kid and I love getting presents. But the very best part is finding that special gift that you know someone will love and watching their eyes light up as they open it.

18.What is your favorite Christmas Song?
‘What Child is This?’

19.Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum?
Pretty much yuck. Some of the new flavors are okay but I don’t like hard candy that much.

20. Favorite Christmas Show?
‘It’s a Wonderful Life’

21.Saddest Christmas Song?
‘I’ll be Home for Christmas’
