A Christmas survey! I encourage you all to fill it out and either post it to your blogs and let me know you did so I can read yours, or answer the questions in the comments!

1. Do you know what you want for Christmas already?

2. Have you done any Christmas shopping yet? I'm completely done.


3. What is a family tradition you do every year? Usually we all load up and go to D's grandma's on Christmas Eve but they are coming to my house this year. Then on Christmas Day we usually fiddle around the house and let the kids enjoy their gifts, but this year my mom is having a get together at my grandmas. So we actually have to leave the house on someone else's schedule. Blah.
 
4. Tell me something that makes you sad about Christmas? Until last year I have never been sad about Christmas. Never. But this year it just seems like the world is gloomy and sad and everything is unChristmasy. Ya know? 
 
5. Do you like Christmas? I do.

6. Will you see all of your family this Christmas? Most of them.
 
7. Who's house will you celebrate at this year? We are only going to my grandma's house this year.
 
8. Is there someone in your family you are not looking forward to seeing this Christmas? If so who, and why? Nope.

9. Do you creatively wrap your presents for others? Not really lol

10. What was the best Christmas gift you were ever given- not counting people, or children: Hmm..this is hard cause I've gotten a lot of good things in my 32 years. Um, I guess it was all the BSB stuff I got in my teen years. Oh! And the Barbie Dream House I got when I was seven!

11. What is a Christmas wish you would give to someone else? I would wish that every single kid wouldn't know what it was like to have Santa skip their house.

12. Whats the most money you ever spent on a gift for someone? We bought my kids a PS4 this year.

13. Do you decorate the tree early, or late? I usually have always put my tree up before Thanksgiving. But this year I wouldn't have put it up until now if D wouldn't have told Owen he could decorate it. I just wasn't into it.

14. Do you use tinsel? Absolutely not! I made that mistake one year and I never will again!

15. Do you own any antique Christmas bulbs? Nope.

19. Funniest Christmas memory? I don't think I have one.

20. Worst Christmas memory: Hmm..that year my entire family (aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents) rented this huge cabin in WI for Christmas. We went up to look at it with everyone but when it came time to leave, my mom wouldn't let us go. So we knew what was going on up there, but we had to stay home with my parents who refused to go.

Oh! There's also that year that my mom tried to make up for that cabin trip and got her own cabin with my dad. And he was bitchy the whole time and everyone had a miserable time.
