5 Question Friday!

Well, it's Five Question Friday & I'm doing it...but i'm not linking to anyone's page. Or blog hopping. Or putting the 5 Question Friday picture up! Why? Well, i'm still in the small town of Grenada Mississippi & the computer i'm using is awfully slow!

I just have no patience.

But we're heading home tomorrow & then i'll be back on my laptop & do it right! =)

Here's today's questions:

1. Do you do a real or fake Christmas tree?
Fake. We use a mini one - a table top tree. I figure eventually we'll get the bigger one - like when we have kids. My family never got a real one when i was a kid because my mom was always allergic. After i moved out, my roommates always got real ones & i just LOVE that smell! I hope to one day have the tradition that so many families have - of finding & getting that perfect tree & bringing it home. But i can't see Brad enjoying that kind of thing, so we may end up doing the fake tree thing again. But that's fine. You can get really nice ones! I'll just have to get Christmas Tree scented candles or something! HA!

2. What is your favorite Christmas tradition with your family?
My family - mom dad & sister - plus the hubby now - always get together for a night of appetizers & desserts, gifts & Christmas music. Sometimes a game or a movie is thrown in, too. I really enjoy this night. We used to do it on Christmas, or Christmas Eve, but now it's whatever night we all can do it. I love it!

3. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in your neck of the woods? And, if so...how many calories do you think you consumed yesterday?
Of course we do! And honestly, i don't think i did too bad! I didn't get seconds, if that's what you mean! & that's pretty good for me! I also kept my desserts to ONE serving of ONE dessert! I used to get a whole plate of everything!

4. Have you started decorating for Christmas, yet?
Nope! I will not decorate for Christmas until Thanksgiving is over. I like having one holiday at a time. =) We are out of town now, but i figure i'll start pulling out the Christmas decor this week. =)

5. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
Okay, cookies are my weakness. Give me chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven any day! But for Christmas, sometimes we have those sugar cookies with icing? In the shape of a stocking or tree or angel? Those are the best!

So, that's my 5QF!
