1. What does it mean to have the 'holiday spirit'?
To me it is about being excited to be doing all the things you have to do. Last year was my first Christmas blogging, I couldn't wait to decorate and get in on the house tour. I blogged about all the cookies I made and took so many pictures. This year I am dragging my feet. I will be lucky to get some pictures up before Christmas. I am very excited to give, I love to give gifts to the people I love. There is nothing that I need except for the well being of my family.
2. What sits atop your tree (s)? Why?
Actually I have a Santa that sits on top. I use to have an angel and I use to use a star that would light up. Just haven't found anything that I am in love with recently and it has been hard to get something to look nice on this tree. The Santa is very cute but I would love to find a snowman!
3. When was the last time you gave yourself a pat on the back?
That is a good question! Okay I am going to do it right now - pat-pat-pat!
4. Which of your senses is most sensitive this time of year?
I'm not sure how to answer this one. My sense of hearing is loving the music, my sense of taste is loving the food, my sense of smell is loving the fragrances and my sight is loving the Christmas lights.
5. What do you have too much of in your kitchen?
I think I have too many cleaning supplies under the sink and way to many can goods in the pantry.
6. What do you do for meals on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Big meal? Breakfast tradition? Open the cookie tins and have at it?
Well you always have to open the cookie tin and have at it! We currently don't do anything on Christmas Eve. Our children will be with their significant others so it will be a quite house. Christmas Day has always been a big meal. Use to be Turkey but we changed to Prime Rib with all the usualy fixings. This year however will be low key with Deep Dish Pizza and snacks. I really want to enjoy the day without a whole lot of work. It is just my mood this year, I felt the same way about Thanksgiving. We don't really have a breakfast tradition but I have to go to a Church Service on Christmas Eve and watch It's A Wonderful Life!
7. What is the best thing about winter?
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I just want to say that I will be praying for everyone and their families during this holiday season. Have fun, stay safe, and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season!
