1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I love wrapping paper, and putting on big pretty bows, BUT sometimes it's too hard to wrap something, and heck with three under three sometimes I just throw it in a bag more and more these days... by the way any suggestions for wrapping a riffle???
2. Tree--Real or Artificial? both, the pink tree is of course fake, we have fake tree with just lights on it in our window above the door (plant shelf or whatever you call it) but our main tree in the living room is real. Real trees can be a pain in the butt, but they smell so good and are worth the extra hastle...
3. When do you put Christmas tree up?honestly we try to shoot for the friday after thanksgiving but with Dave's schedule it doesn't always happen that way. The pink tree went up really early cause I was really excited when I bought it...
4. When do you take the tree down? Sometimes New Years Day, sometimes a few days after.
5. Like eggnog? I hate it. The husband loves it, but doesn't like it spiked.
6. Do you have a nativity scene? I used to but I think Laura broke it her first Christmas. It was an el cheapo one I picked up at some place going out of business. I really should get another one.

9. Easiest person to buy for? My kids. It's so much fun.
10. Worst Christmas gift? a precious moments soccer figurine from a neighbor. Don't worry I acted all excited. I just hate precious moments anything, I think they are tacky, the big heads scare me.
