5 Question Friday

I have been reading others 5 question Friday posts for awhile...
So I thought I would join in this week...Here ya go!
Linking up here.......
1. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Both! We have a big celebration on Christmas Eve with my family, my husbands' family, and all the uncles, aunts, and cousins. Either Papa, one of the Uncles, or the Hubs dresses up as Santa and brings his big bag of toys to the kids (gifts are from the family--not Santa ha!). We have our big dinner on Christmas Eve and do all of our extended family celebrating that night...

On Christmas Day, Santa brings the presents. We spend time just as our "little" family in our jammies...I usually make a breakfast casserole and we just hang out and let the kids play with their new toys. Last year we went sledding that afternoon...but we don't often have a white Christmas.

2. What is your favorite Christmas cookie (or candy)?

My favorite all time cookies are sugar cookies with frosting...yum yum...and for candy...FUDGE...
Oh my!
Dieting til Christmas so I can eat my weight in both ;)

3. What's the worst Christmas gift you've ever received?

I am TRULY not one of those people who gets upset about the gifts they receive and whether or not they live up to my standards...I truly believe the other person tried their hardest to get me something thoughtful....On top of that, I don't even care about receiving I'm no
fun for this question.

4. Christmas song that you love?
This would have to be "Silent Night"....It always makes me think about Mary . What was going on in her mind as she held my Savior in her arms, kissed his sweet little head, and breathed in His new baby smell? Tear up almost every time I hear it.

5. How many trees do you put up?

This varies from year to year....this year it is for upstairs and one for down...We have our big tree in the living room and a smaller one in the upstairs loft for the kids....neither one of them have ornaments on the lower 1/3 ;)

Hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas - I'm working on catching up and sticking with blogging this time. I have no idea what happened to me the last few months of the year - when the kids went back to school I lost it I think :)
