1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I love wrapping paper. I especially love the look of brown meat packing paper with a huge bright bow on it.
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificifial, I so do not what to know what my two cats would do with a read tree. Granted they both are declawed, but that wouldn't stop them. And maybe Bocephus would hike his leg on a read one.
3. When do you put up the tree? Since Rich bought me a tree I like putting it up early. When he bought it we put it up in December, the second year I put it up the night before Thanksgiving, last year Iput it up after Thanksgiving and this year the first one got putup day after Halloween.
4. When do you take the tree down? Sometime after New Years.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I think I got the My Buddy doll at Christmas, and there are several pictures of me with him.
7. Hardest person to buy for? My husband! Mom and Dad - they have just about everything already.
8. Easiest person to buy for? Aimee and Tucker
9. Do you have a nativity scene? I have a large set that's all white from Home Interiors that I like, but I'm aiming to get the Willow Tree set - I love that they don't have faces.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail! I love having them mailed :)
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I don't remember...

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't think I have.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Just about everything.
16. Lights on the tree? Yes! I love all white and Rich likes colored though. Either way I want it packe.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Growig up we opened our gifts whenever Dad could make it home for that hour or two from work, so the time always changed. Now that we're older we usually always end up opening them Christmas Eve - we can sleep in. :)
