Kristin at Whole Lotta Mama tagged me in this fun Getting to Know you game. Kristin is a stay at home mom of 6! She has a wonderful site dedicated to educating women on domestic abuse. Drop by her site and show her some love!



Ok, on with the game...

Instructions: Simply copy and paste the questions into your blog, and then answer them. Then tag 5 or more of your favorite blogs, and leave a comment telling them they’ve been tagged.

When you post your blog, please spread some Christmas cheer, and leave a link back to Top 10 Christmas, and the blog that you were tagged by. (You can participate even if you were not tagged)


Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yes, and I'm pretty much finished. Things are tight this year so we're keeping it simple.

Tell me about one of your special traditions.
One of the traditions I have always loved in my family is staying up til midnight on Christmas Eve and getting to open one present. It adds to the excitement and anticipation of Christmas morning!


Are you a Black Friday Shopper?
Nope! I'm not a morning person, so there's no way I'd go out at the crack of dawn. Plus, I hate crowds, long lines, and crabby shoppers. But if there is a super duper deal, I might send my hubby out for it (tee hee).

When do you put up your Tree?
The first weekend in December that we have my son; I have joint custody

Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
We usually stay at home for Christmas.

What is your funniest Christmas memory?
My mom & step-dad came over one Christmas and stayed in our rental townhouse before we moved. For some reason, my mom couldn't sleep and rearranged most of the kitchen before I got up. She also cleaned and it took a long time for us to be able to find anything.

What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
I love Home Alone. My son really likes it too! Plus, when he does the "face", he kinda looks like Macaulay Culkin.

Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
LOL I am the last person to ask about baking things. I'm not the best cook. But my hubby helps us make sugar cookies every year and they are delicious!

Fake or Real Tree?
We get a fake tree. The real ones smell great, but the needles drive me nuts and the pets try to eat it. The fake one is less maintenance.

What day (as a mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
It depends, because I don't always have my son on Christmas Day. I panic usually the night before we celebrate together and try to cram everything in. I hate wrapping!


Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Depends if I have my son on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day that year. But I am usually wrapping the day before I have him.

What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
When we are all in our pajamas opening presents together and having a special Christmas breakfast.

What Christmas craft do you like the best?
Crafts? What are those? lol I'm not very crafty. But when I was teaching, I used to love making crafts with the kids during our Christmas parties.

Christmas music. Yes or No, and if yes What is your favorite song?
I love Christmas music! My favorite songs are "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer", "All I Want for Christmas is You," and "O Holy Night."

When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
I'm finished! Woohoo!
