'Tis the season........

Stolen (as usual..) from my Louisiana girl Kimber

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I like both. But I can only enjoy egg nog in small doses.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? WRAPPED!!! That is half the fun, tearing open unknown packages!

Colored inside, white outside.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? We had this fake mistletoe thing in my house growing up, but I've never seen real mistletoe

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Oooh toughy.. Turkey or mashed potatoes.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? I don't really get gifts anymore. I may let Mason open one gift. We are really starting all our traditions this year, as its the first year Mason is really understanding the whole Christmas thing.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? We collect ornaments from all different places we visit. Some were given to us by our parents when we moved away from home. It is an eclectic hodgepodge that brings up tons of memories every year we open the ornament box.

Biggest Lemon EVER..

Courstey of a parishoner at our church. We used the store lemon to compare the size. Mason won't allow us to cut it, but as you will see, he keeps diggin his nails into them so he can smell them.
