In the spirit of Christmas and giving some holiday fluff... Enjoy this Christmas meme that I stole from Maggie.
01. Non-Jesus-related song?
02. Jesus-related song?
"First Noel" or "Do You Hear What I Hear?"
03. Santa-related song?
04. Fictional character?
Hermie from Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
05. Dinner’s main course?
We don't really do dinner - we always have Christmas brunch with pancakes, french toast, bacon, scrambled eggs and if I'm feeling really inspired to cook, sausage & grits for Yummy
06. Dinner’s dessert?
Any and all please!
07. Scent (pine, gingerbread, candles…)?
Fresh pine, cookies baking in the oven, hot cocoa
08. Animated movie?
Really all the ones from when I was a kid but my fave is Rudolph!
09. Non-animated movie?
That's an easy one - "It's a Wonderful Life", "The Holiday" and "A Christmas Story"
10. Personal memory?
Hmm... I have two. The first when I was about 6 and my step-dad got me a teddy bear that was named Benny. I still have the bear (and no I don't sleep with it). It was so special to me because I received it from one of his trips to the air reserve base and he'd been gone for some time but it became my replacement for my beloved Snoopy dog that I wore out and he had no stuffing.
The second was Christmas 2006 - I should say two days before when Yummy proposed. I was making pies for him to take to his kitchen crew and he came home all weird and nervous. After his shower, he came to the kitchen and wrapped his arms around me, started telling me how much he loved me and asking me a BUNCH of questions (remember I did say weird. lol) at this point I KNEW something was up and when I turned around to ask him what the hell was up with him, he was down on one knee with the most beautiful ring! A Christmas to remember when your prince charming asks you to be his princess!
11. Story/Fairy Tale?
Twas the Night Before Christmas - we read it EVERY Christmas Eve whether the princes and I are together or not. It's a tradition! If they're at the ex's, I call them and we do it over the phone because we can't go without reading it together!
This or That
12. Candy cane or peppermint patties?
13. Sugar or gingerbread cookies?
Definitely sugar with icing and sprinkles!
14. Tinsel or beaded strands?
Really neither - tinsel and dogs don't mix well and I used to do beads but the trees about the princes and our memories we hang on it.
15. Multi-colored or same-colored lights?
multi-colored like I had when I was a kid
16. Flashing or still lights?
17. Wreaths or mistletoe/holly?
18. Rudolph or Frosty?
Rudolph of course!
19. Sledding or snowball fights?
Both but it seems the snowball fights are what happen during the winter. ;-)
.20. Snow or ice/icicles?
21. Snow hat or earmuffs?
22. Getting or giving?
I love giving but getting is also a plus. :-)
23. Snow days or plow trucks?
Duh! I'm a teacher - SNOW DAYS!!!
24. Stockings or presents?
Both because stockings usually have the smaller presents. ;-)
25. Cookies & milk or letter to Santa?
all of the above, of course!
26. Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Both! But Christmas Day seems to not be my fave especially the years that the princes spend the ENTIRE day at the ex's even though he NEVER celebrated on this day until he met me and celebrated with my family!! UUgghh... what a way to be a Grinch and steal Christmas from me and the princes each year!
27. Log Burning Channel or real thing?
Real thing, of course!
28. Cards or emails?
Cards but emails also let you know that you are thought of.
29. Shoveling or cleaning off the car?
Neither - that's why there's snow blowers!
30. The Inn’s manger or the animals?
31. Mary & Joseph or The Wise Men?
32. Hot cocoa or eggnog?
Cocoa but a good rum eggnog is a plus!

Little Drummer Boy
