Time for Wee Bit Wednesday with Leigh Ashley! Yay!
Did you buy a Christmas Tree this year?
No. We're using the [fake] mini tree again this year. Next year, i'd like a taller one, and my mom said i can have hers because she wants a huge one. So, it looks like I won't be buying one next year either...i'll be getting hers for free! (Yes, we do fake trees. I'm totally okay with that.)
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
I think i've already told this 2-3 times now just this year. Haha. Oh-well. That's my fault for wanting to do these memes all the time! Anyway, favorite holiday tradition. My immediate family (plus Brad & Mike) get together for our own little Christmas. We do appetizers & desserts, listen to Christmas music & maybe watch a Christmas movie. Oh, yeah, and open gifts! :) It's a fun time, just the 6 of us.
Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Well, with my family we do it whenever we have our little get-together. Which, this year, is THIS saturday! Eek! Brad & I exchange gifts Christmas Day. And i think last year, we did gifts with his family on Christmas Eve, but that was random...not a tradition...
At what age did you stop believing in Santa Claus?
I have no idea. I remember seeing mom & dad sneaking to the Christmas Tree with gifts one night. And i remember not being surprised or upset at all...i think i had already figured as much, but they just confirmed my suspicions. ;) Maybe 10?
Do you fill stockings?
No...I have to say, my favorite part of Christmas growing up was the stockings. Mom did an awesome job!! I tried to have that be a tradition with Brad & I our first Christmas, but...well...let's just say he didn't really "get" how you fill a stocking. :) I look forward to doing this for our kids!!
Handmade presents or store bought presents?
Well, BOTH! Or either!!
Do you have a favorite Christmas meal?
Not really... it's always GOOD food, though! Can't wait!
Is your Christmas tree real or artificial?
What is your favorite Christmas song?
O Holy Night - Mariah Carey's version
But i recently got Kari Jobe's Christmas cd & i LOVE her Oh Little Town of Bethlehem/Away in a Manger medley. It's beautiful.
Did you send out Christmas Cards this year?
Yes. :) I love doing that.
