Holiday Meme

Eggnog or hot chocolate? Hot Chocolate for the most part but there was that one year I drank a ton of eggnog - then noticed my waist had expanded.

Plus, hot chocolate has chocolate. NEED I SAY MORE??

Does Santa wrap the presents or leave them open under the tree? When Santa starts to visit our house, I will have to say they will be unwrapped. That is how we always did it! Except for my poor dad, who left my stocking stuffers (those were santa too) by the chair and I was like "hey what's this?" and my dad was like "oh. s*$#! um... that was going to be Santa..." and THAT is how I heard there was no Santa. Love you Dad!

Colored lights on a tree, or white? WHITE. Many Many strands.

Do you hang mistletoe? I have a fake one for decoration. I try and place myself under it when I have time...

When do you put your decorations up? Thanksgiving after we eat. Ever heard of Thanksgiving Breakast? I think I will implement that soon...

What is your favorite holiday dish? Stuffing and Gravy

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Nope. But I LOVED the Modern Family episode where they have a tradition of opening a present that is PJ's and they have to wear them to bed and that way they have them on when you open presents the next day. Awesome.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Methodically. I am an designer. nuff said.

Snow: love it or hate it? Love it since it's so rare!

Can you ice skate? I have once.

What is your favorite holiday dessert? Um. Hmmm... I am a sweets person but not so much on the traditional 'holiday" desserts. Cherry pie?

What is your favorite holiday tradition? I have always loved stockings. I am making that our tradition to start this year so we can carry it on with a little one.
However, Lee got confused and bought a Le Crueset dutch oven. I don't think he gets it quite yet. BUT - if he figures out diamonds are small and fit into stockings, ok!

Candy canes: yum or yuck? Eh.

Favorite Christmas show? I know this is a little modern but Love Actually. Watch the end with the kid and the airport. Oh man. But I also stop in my tracks to watch Christmas Story and the Griswalds.

Tree and Presents and Stockings!

See Lee's stocking to the right on the entertainments center? I had to take it down and put it on the ledge because it was so heavy it pulled off the stocking holder!!
We are opening presents with Donald and Don tonight and Lee gave me one present early today - a Le Crueset dutch oven! HOLY COW! I love it and there is a pot roast in it right now!

Sunday No-Day

Usually we make Sunday "Funday." Football, food, getting ready for the week, etc.
Today it has been Sunday "no day." we haven't done anything. nothing. nada.

It is 1:45pm.
We have not brushed our teeth.
We had Whataburger Cheeseburgers - for breakfast.
I am in my robe and panties. Panties I wore all day yesterday.
We are gross no?
(yes. very)

I have decided that when you own dogs, they become little, furry versions of their pawrents.
Observe Teddy on the floor:
Observe Teddy and Lee on the sofa watching football:
Observe Lola in her "Hammock.":
See that computer? I have been on it reading blogs for about 4 hours now. There is a book on the chair calling my name.
The shower? not so much.

We Texans don't get much snow. In fact, the news said this is the 4th time in 20 years we have ever gotten it in Houston so you can see how we would freak out a little bit!
Lee - Throwing a snowball at me!
The yard
Puppies investigating!
It falling in front of our house
Yay snow day!
