Knowing Me, Knowing you December

I totally missed the November addition. I love doing these and cant believe I missed it! Always skip on over and check out The Fairy Blog Mother who created the monthly interview process and play along. Its so much fun!

1. Are you an egg nog fan?

No way! I try it every year because it looks so good but I gag on it every time. I don't know what it is about it but I just cant acquire the taste.

2. What is your favorite at Christmas treat?

I cant think of a at Christmas treat but my favorite seasonal treat is the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks! It is my all time favorite and just makes it that time of year...know what I mean. The smell, the taste, everything about it.

3. How is your tree decorated? A theme like red and gold? Or does it have a more eclectic slant?

I would for sure say it is eclectic. I put up my moms tree this year. Since she has passed away I take over the Christmas tradition of early Christmas morning with my brothers and their families. They come early and I make a huge breakfast with all the trimmings. She had a tree of all the ornaments that we made when we were in school, from family outings and then grand-babies came along and the ones that they have made are on there too. She even bought the stuff one year for them to make ornaments together so the handmade ones are on there. This tree is more valuable to me than gold. It is for sure not my style but it makes me feel so close to her with her not being here. My brothers appreciate it too!

4. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I don't really have a favorite. We usually just watch which ever one we come across on TV. I do like the ones with Tim Alan. I forget the names of them right now. Plus you have to watch the Charlie Brown seasonal ones too. We have been watching those since I was a kid.

5. New PJ's on Christmas Eve?

We usually always have new jammies for Christmas Eve. Usually just because I was able to find them for a really good deal on Black Friday. I did not go this year due to blood pressure issues and being preggo so I need to go and find the kiddos some for Christmas. Oh Man one year I was able to find footy PJ's for Tim (the hubby). It was so great! I need to mention that he is 6'2". It was just about the funniest thing. What makes it even better is that he asked for them. I wonder that happened to those.
