A Little Holiday Reflection

Dec 24, 2013

I can't believe Christmas Eve is already here!  Where did the time go this season?  I feel like I have just been running around for weeks. And now...it is here!  I thought it might be fun to link up with Fabulous in First to reflect on the season a little.

Hot Chocolate or Eggnog?
I would have to choose hot chocolate, but in all honestly, I would just prefer to pick coffee.  It is coffee and water for me all year long!
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa wraps our presents.  Santa brings only one special gift and then the rest are from mom and dad.
Colored lights or white?
I love white lights.  There is something so simple and special about them.
Real or fake tree?
I have always had a fake tree.  Last year was our first year for a real tree because the lights went out on the fake one.  The smells, the look, the fullness!  I really love the real tree! (But it was a little tall this year!)

Favorite Christmas memories or traditions?
 After much thought on this question, I think it is driving around looking at Christmas lights.  My Ben and I have been doing this together since we were in high school.  It is relaxing, fun, and I enjoy including my girls in this tradition now!  We drove to the Christmas Ranch last night.  Wow!!

Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
 I have been racking my brain trying to remember what my favorite gift is.  But my thoughts always go back to our traditions and things we did as a family.  So...I don't have a favorite gift but I have lots and lots of great memories.

Do you prefer giving or receiving?
Oh giving!  I love to watch everyone open their gifts.  It is so exciting!

What is your favorite Christmas song?
My Ben collects Christmas music.  We figured out that we have 48 straight hours of music (no repeats).  That is a lot to pick from!  But for some reason, I love The Christmas Song by Dave Matthew Band.
Candy Canes...Yum or yuck?
I would prefer not eat them.
Favorite Christmas movies?
It's a Wonderful Life.
Do you shop online or at stores?
 I love to shop.  So I actually shop for Christmas all year long in stores. (I love a bargain!!)
Photo cards, letters, or store bought cards?
Store bought cards.  It may seem boring but I do write a personal note to each person in each card!


  1. I love Christmas music, and have a playlist on my iPod, I don't know how many hours, but I love to click play and off we go. Merry Christmas!!

  2. It's A Wonderful Life is one of my favorites too!

    Happy Holidays!

  3. There are so many different kinds of store bought cards now...it's hard to choose! I like to personalize them to the recipient as well. :) Merry Christmas!
