What is your favorite thing about Christmas??

I love the feeling of Christmas, just the peace and joy you get from everything.

-What is your favorite Christmas memory??

Hmmmm… Well here is a cool one: The year I got Mckenna I asked for her gymnastics set. One of my presents was some money. My Mom told me I could use it to help to save for Caroline. I was really happy about that. They totally fooled me because… there was a big box under the tree for me and when I tore open the wrapping paper it was a cardboard box. I thought the big box held Mckenna’s gymnastics stuff. I opened the box, cleared away the packing peanuts, and low and behold it was a doll! Yup, I got Caroline! I was so surprised I started crying (not to mention my dad was videoing XD). My mom said that they were so proud I had earned for Mckenna myself they bought her for me. It was way better than getting Mckenna’s gymnastics stuff.

-Do you have any Christmas traditions?? 

Yeah… we aren’t a super traditional family, but we get our Christmas breakfast in our stockings!

-What is your Christmas wish??

To get REBECCA!

-What is your favorite Christmas dish??

Every year we have the big dinner on Christmas eve, and on Christmas, we snack on cheese, crackers, summer sausages, and a bunch of other stuff. So to answer the question: I like all the little snacky stuff. Last year we each also got a bag of dried strawberries in our stockings! YUM!

– What is your favorite Christmas decoration??

Definitely the tree. It’s full of memorable ornaments and the lights!!! I love the lights!

-Whats your favorite Christmas song?

DON’T. EVEN. ASK. Is it possible to have a favorite?! There are too many good ones!

-Where do you usually celebrate Christmas?

Usually our house. This year though, we are having it in my Mom’s cottage (it’s a separate building from the house: like the “Lego House”) since our actual house isn’t completed yet. 😉 That’s where the tree is in the picture above. ^

-What does the Christmas spirit mean to you?

It means a lot. It means celebrating Jesus humbling himself to come to earth. This Christmas I want to remember that the reason we give and get presents is to symbolize what God gave us, the ultimate love sacrifice.

-Out of anyone in the world would you want to spend Christmas with?

UGH! That is so hard… if I chose one person… probably my sister?


I nominate:

Katie! 

AG’s in Alaska!

And The PolkaDotPatriot!

Have fun Guys!

Also a note: I might not be posting this coming week. I am hoping to at least get one post up about what I get, but probably not much else because… IT IS CHRISTMAS WEEK! Does there really need to be more explaining? XD

Bye For Now!!!

AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR NOMINATING ME!!! LOL I had a similar experience last year with Maryellen, so my mom likes to do this thing where she’ll put a box into a lager box, then put that into a even larger box. XD So on Christmas I opened a present and saw a cardboard box, I opened one of the flaps and saw Beforever.. I thought she was just putting a small outfit box into a larger box. I open the box the rest of the way and I see Maryellen, I’m so startled to see her in there I close the cardboard box and look at my mom and ask her “Really? Is she mine?” XD. Your tree is so beautiful! I love it! That is such a cool tradition to have your breakfast in your stockings, what do you usually get in them?

    No problem! XD OH WOW! THAT’S AWESOME! That’s sound’s almost like something I would say! Thank You so much, I like it a lot. We usually will get some sort of cereal (sometimes in the small individual travel sized boxes), fruit, (this year I know we are getting individual orange juice bottles) sometimes we’ll get nuts or raisins… it differs a lot each year.
