Officially the Christmas season, that is!
Mama M from My Little Life has 5 Christmas-themed questions for us today. How would you answer these questions?
1. Do you do a real or fake Christmas tree?
Not only do we buy a real tree every year, but it can’t be just any tree. It must be a douglas fir. No, it’s not me that has strong feelings about this….it’s CandyMan, and I happily roll along with it each year. I love the smell of a fresh tree in the house. I hate the mess that it creates, but I put up with it and vacuum 3 times a day just to enjoy our full, wonderfully smelling tree each December.
2. What is your favorite Christmas tradition with your family?
My favorite tradition is making caramels with my kids, because that’s what I did with my mom and brother and sisters every Christmas when I was growing up. I can’t wait to start making candy again!
I am also a Christmas story collector. I love reading a different Christmas story each night, and collecting Christmas story books.
3. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in your neck of the woods? And, if so…how many calories do you think you consumed yesterday?
I do celebrate Thanksgiving and I spend two days cooking the food for the feast. I refuse to count the calories, because I really want to be able to enjoy the meal (for three days in a row, at least). There is no guilty eating on holidays!
4. Have you started decorating for Christmas, yet?
We are pulling out the Christmas boxes on Saturday. I can’t wait to transform my family room into a Christmas wonderland. Ok…..maybe not a wonderland. My decorations are not THAT good…..
5. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
My favorite Christmas cookie is the peanut butter cookie with snickers inside. Yum! I only make them once a year (I save all of the snickers from trick or treating just for these cookies!) and they are worth waiting all year for!
