{my wild & crazy tree!}

Ok so here is my tree! I LOVE IT. It's bright and fun and totally non-traditional. It's really hard to get a good photo of it though! I really gotta get a better camera. None of these pics do it justice but OH WELL! :)



I used my very own kit, "It's Christmas Time in the City" for this 2-pager. My tree actually inspired the kit in the first place! :) There are only a few things that aren't from the kit. For full credits, you can visit my gallery.

Ang has this fun little Christmas quiz on her blog, so I stole it!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate if I had to pick.  But I do like Egg Nog.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? He wraps them up!  

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Ours are red and green on the house and MULTI-COLORED FUN on the tree!  I guess we just aren't white light people!

4. Do you have mistletoe? No!  Dang, I should get some!

5. When do you put up your decorations? Haha.  Um. . . . two days ago!  But that is not ideal!  Next year I swear I'm doing it the weekend after Thanksgiving!  

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Mom's Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole, with English Muffins and jam!  Mmmmm.  I can't wait!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child:  Sleeping all together in the same room on Christmas Eve with all my brothers.  We still do it!  HAHA  We have had to move it into the living room so we all fit now, but we still sleep in the same room, spouses and all.  Now that Christian has a baby, I'm sure it'll be different but we'll figure something out! :)

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa: I confronted my mom at a young age and DEMANDED she stop lying to me and tell me the truth RIGHT NOW!  I was irate!  I couldn't believe she would lie to me, she was one of my best friends!  I was very upset and poor Mom was not prepared because I was so young.  Haha.  SORRY MOM!  I was (am) pretty dramatic!

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Yes, Christmas Pajamas!

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?  See pics above!!  LOTS of color and sparkle and TONS of lights!!!

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? LOVE to look at it, don't love driving or being in it!

12. Can you ice skate? Yeah.  But only straight forward and semi-slowly.  It hurts my stupid weak ankles.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Probably my American Girl Doll, Kirsten.  It was a BIG DEAL when I got her!  I LOVED her.  And I took good care of her. 

Well, I ran all over today getting the last stuff on the list.  I just have to finish putting gifts togther and wrapping!  And MAN do I love to wrap!!  I wish money wasn't tight this year, cuz I'm dying to buy lots of pretty ribbon and paper!  I LOVE to wrap extravagantly.  But what I have will do!  :) :)

OH!  And if you live in the Provo area, here's something I learned today!  The UPS Store in Provo does FREE Same Day MTC Delivery if your package is under 5 pounds!  I knew they did Same-Day delivery, but I didn't know it was free!!  I was so excited when I dropped off Scotty's Christmas present today! Woo hoo!!

See ya later!!
