Christmas Challenge

Well, if the cold has anything to do with Christmas, we are getting really close! 

Check out my previous post and enter the Smile Brilliant review + giveaway πŸ™‚

I am stealing this idea from Amanda and go through my own Christmas Challenge! Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

25 Days of Christmas


Your favorite Christmas movie. Home Alone – I still have to turn away when the burglars get hurt!

What’s on your 2012 2016 Christmas list. Honestly?? Nothing… I would love new running shoes and race registrations!! But I don’t expect anything for Christmas this year. I have plenty of “things” in my life – and good health and happiness are on my non-“things” list this year πŸ™‚

When/how did you learn that Santa wasn’t real? I am not sure how old I was…but I found gifts in my parents closet – the same gifts that I received Christmas morning – spoiler!!

Favorite Christmas song. Silent Night

Best gift you’ve ever received. I really loved the in-line skates I received when I was a kid!!

Your favorite tree ornament. Currently, it is the orniment that little man made for us last year at daycare πŸ™‚ It is his hand or foot…3 snow-people – love it!!

Most memorable Christmas. I believe the 2 Christmas’ that we have had little man around have been the most memorable! Last year, he was SO STOAKED to get a “motorcycle” (a tricycle)!! He went nuts and even though he couldn’t use it all that well, he is a pro at it today!!

Post a picture of Christmas decor. The hubs put up a new Christmas tree last week πŸ™‚

Easiest person to buy for? The hubs πŸ™‚

Favorite holiday scent. Apple Cinnamon might not be completly a “holiday scent” but it makes me think about family and usually is around the house during the holidays πŸ™‚

Favorite Christmas tradition. Going home to spend time with family.

Wrapping paper or gift bags? Gift bags are soooooo easy!!

Favorite Christmas book. I don’t remember reading Christmas books…

Real or artificial tree? Artifical…when we actually get one again. The cats and dog chewed up the last tree we had and I think it met the trash man not too long after…

The best gift you’ve given. I think of myself as a good gift giver…but I am not sure what my best gift given was. I am pretty sure I know my best gifts…but they were not for Christmas πŸ™‚

Hardest person to buy for? …anyone other than my hibs πŸ™‚

Post a picture of an old Christmas card. I can’t find any (fail)

When to you open gifts? My parents and family get together on Christmas Eve for gifts…and my in-laws get together on Christmas Morning πŸ™‚ We’ll see what happens this year!

Favorite stocking stuffer. Lip balm

Favorite Christmas meal. Shrimp πŸ˜€

Do you travel for the holidays? Most years, yes – we travel 100 miles to stay and visit with family in the KC area.

Eggnog or hot chocolate? Hot Chocolate πŸ™‚

Your plans for Christmas 2012 2016. Honestly, we have not talked about it much. The hubs would like to start our own Christmas traditions at home…but it is so easy to drive home and spend it with family πŸ™‚ Year after year, it is a little harder for me to break away from heading back home – especially now that my family is all over the place and his family is close too.

Favorite Christmas Eve tradition. Going to Christmas Eve church service with the in laws πŸ™‚

What are some of your holiday traditions? Eggnog or hot chocolate? Favorite Christmas present?
