Well, I love everything...the smells, the lights, the glitter, the trees...I love what Christmas represents and the memories are "treasures"! During part of my "childhood", we didn't celebrate Christmas as a family....I think I "make up" for those lost years!

Thank you for this award!!!

Great list!

I've been hinting for a pandora bracelet for a few years....haven't gotten it yet! Oh well.

Hot Chocolate with marshmallows for me too.

Christy said...

It was fun to read your answers and get to know you a little bit more.

Congrats on your other awards too:)

The Nester said...

Your door and fence looks so wonderful--that post had like a zillion comments so I wrote it here. Also, now I have to go find that "Belive" song you were talking about!

Your blog looks great!

duchess said...

Congrats on the awards & loved finding out more about you.
Makes me want to find some dips & hot chocolate.

Sarah said...

I didn't really understand the question about Santa either so I kind of made something up! :)

Congratulations on your award and thank you for mine!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

What a fun post!!! I SO remember your doll house that lit up!!! I LOVED it, and wished I had one. I still think of it, and think about how cool it was.
Thanks for tagging me-I will post my Christmas questions soon!
(Love the Christmas award-you do deserve it!)

Caren said...

I enjoyed your answers...what a fun tag! I think the question about Santa meas does he wrap the presents or just leave unwrapped presents under the tree...I know my parents did that sometimes for our really "special" ones like our kitchen set or a special doll.

Is it a violation of blogland etiquette to just steal a meme and do it myself and then tag some people? I sure hope not because I'm going to. I'll link back to you of course though. Hope that's Ok!

Happy Holidays!

Carolina Mama said...

I had to smile at the Cabbage Patch kid...I think that might have been my favorite gift too. :) I think they are "back" now and I am hoping they are still in vogue when my daughter is old enough to know the difference between a Cabbage Patch and a $5 Walmart baby doll!

'Tags' are fun, aren't they!!! Do you HAVE to be tagged though, to participate??? Maybe... I could just pretend I've been tagged... Can a blogger get away with that;)?!! I loved seeing all your family photos from your earlier posts too - beautiful! Hope you're having a great day...

Quiche Me, I'm Yours! said...
