Getting to Know Me....Christmas Edition! 1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? - Wrapping paper. I always have a special kind that I buy for each year. 2. Real tree or artificial? - Artificial....I hate the needles that I have to clean up. 3. When do you put up the tree? - Usually we start the weekend after Thanksgiving, but since having Jacob sometimes it takes us a little longer. 4. Do you like eggnog? - NO! Disgusting! 5. Favorite gift received as a child? - I think the best gift I ever received was a CD player boom box. I think I got about 5 CD's that year, MC Hammer, New Kids, Vanilla Ice, and some others. I know bad taste. 6. Do you have a nativity scene? - Yes, but I didn't put it out this year because it is breakable and the little man has his hands all over everything. 7. Hardest person to buy for? - My husband. He never says anything that he wants. And when he does it is usually something for hunting and I am clueless. 8. Easiest person to buy for? - Jacob. He's only 15 months so of course he's not to picky right now. I could wrap an old gift and he wouldn't know the difference. 9. Mail or email Christmas cards? - Mail! I love mailing Christmas cards and I love going to the mailbox everyday during December to see if we received any Christmas cards. Which means I better get to work on sending our's out. 10. Favorite Christmas movie? - The Christmas Story. As a kid we would always watch it and now it has become a tradition on TV for 24 hours straight of "The Christmas Story." 11. When do you start shopping for Christmas? - Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving and I usually finish mid December. 12. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? - All the dinner sides. I love all the casseroles and potatos. I am not a big fan of turkey, but I don't mind it. 13. Clear lights or colored lights on the tree? - Clear lights. I don't like colored lights for some reason. 14. Favorite Christmas song? - I really don't have a favorite Christmas song. I actually don't really listen to it that much. Too many of the songs get stuck in my head. 15. Travel or stay home at Christmas? - We usually stay at home because all of our family lives in the area. 16. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? - Dasher, Prancer, Donner, Vixen, Comit, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen, Rudolph!.....that is all I can name. I was trying to sing the song in my head. Ha! 17. Angel on tree top or star? - usually some kind of bow that I have made and an tree topper ornament. 18. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? - We always open presents on Christmas morning. 19. The most annoying thing about this time of year? - Nothing really bothers me about this time of year. I love it! It is my favorite time of year. 20. What I love most about Christmas? - Spending time with my family. I love the togetherness. I also enjoy going to Children's Mass on Christmas Eve.

Hi Rebecca! I see we have a few things in common here!

I saw your comment {thanks for that!}, and as soon as I get home later today, I will give you the name and item number of the JC Penney drapes. They really have a luxurious look for a solid panel. I told my client I would do these in my own home!
