This week there are 15 questions as there will be none next week or the week after due to Christmas and New Year.

This weeks questions are:

1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?

7.Favorite Christmas Movie?

11.Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
12.Do you like Fruitcake?
13.What are you most excited about the holidays?
14.Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
15.Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?

My Answers are:

1.Wrapping paper or gift bags?

Wrapping paper. I love sitting down and wrapping presents, takes ages but is fun :)

2.Real or artificial tree?

I would love to have a real tree but we have an artificial one. It is a nice one though but nothing beats that beautiful smell of pine in your house.

3.When do you put your tree up?

1st of December usually but this year that fell on a Thursday so we just waited until the Saturday (3rd Dec).

4.When do you take your tree down?

I know that you are supposed to wait until the New Year or 12 days or something like that, but after having it up for nearly a month I get so sick of it that I take it down usually 2-3 days after Christmas day.

5.Do you like eggnog?

I have never tried eggnog and I doubt that I would even if given the chance. It doesn't look very enticing.

6.Do you have a nativity scene?

No

7.Favorite Christmas Movie?

When I was a little girl, a movie called 'Prancer' came on the TV around Christmas time. I taped it onto VCR and watched it over and over and over. I loved that movie :) I watched it all year 'round.

8.Favorite Christmas cookie?

I don't really eat cookies at Christmas time but I do eat a lot of Ferrero Rochers and Candy Canes :) mmmmmmm












9.Where will you eat Christmas dinner?

Christmas dinner this year will be at my parents house.

10.Angel, bow or star on top of your tree?

We have a lovely glittery star on the top of our tree this year.

11.Most annoying thing about this time of the year?

The crowds and crowds of people that line all the shops....not that I can talk, I am there as well :)

12.Do you like Fruitcake?

Sometimes. I really have to be in the right mood to want to eat fruitcake. I like it better when it is warmed up with a little bit of thickened cream over top.

13.What are you most excited about the holidays?

Seeing my children's faces on Christmas morning and watching them have a wonderful time. Christmas is all about them now and it warms my heart to see them so happy and enjoying themselves over the holidays.

14.Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Ha ha, Nick and I are shocking at waiting until Christmas morning. We are so impatient that we end up opening our presents to each other on Christmas eve but the kids open theirs on Christmas morning.

15.Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?

Yes I will be for sure. This year I have been very slack/busy so I haven't even started wrapping the presents yet. I will be assembling 3 bikes on Christmas Eve as well :)


I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and New Year. Be safe and have fun!!

  3. I missed the fragrance of pine when I got my faux tree, but I have a wax incense burner that I put some wax pine chips on, and it really smells like the real thing.

  4. What a fun post Vicky. We have a real tree... just love the smell of the pine, especially if the house has been closed up all day. Enjoy Christmas lunch with your Mum and Dad. Love you all heaps
