7. Favorite holiday memory as a child- the year I got a toy (I don't even remember what toy) and it needed batteries and we couldn't find any so my brother Duane quick ran to the store with me and bought me batteries so I could play with it. In fact the store was closing and the doors were locked but someone came out and as they did we ran in!
8. Do you open gifts on Christmas eve- we always did as kids but now we usually open them on Christmas morning- depending on when we have church

10. Can you ice skate- no
11. What's the most important thing about the Holidays- celebrating Jesus' birth and spending time with family

"O Holy Night" non religious would be "Sleigh Ride"

I'd love to hear some of your answers too!!

First of all - what is a MeMe?

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate - of course Hot Chocolate!
2. Santa doesn't do anything for us. We must have been naughty!
3. NOOOO colored lights - only white (although we don't have any outside because there are no outlets on our house!)
4. I don't have mistletoe - I have a kissing ball!
5. This year I put them up on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving.
6. My favorite holiday dish is the white chococlate mix - I could eat a whole bucket of it - I also like Christmas cookies and anything chocolate!
7. Honestly - I can't think of one! They're all good.
8. We open them on Christmas Eve, but I really don't know what things will be like this year.
9. I love snow as long as I am snuggly inside. Although after a big storm I like driving outside when it is calm and everything is covered and bright.
10. I have never tried - probably because I'd break my other arm!
11. I wish I could say Jesus birth- and in my heart that is true, but the most important to me right now is that I get time off to spend with Aaron and family.
12. My absolute favorite is Carol of the Bells - especially by Trans-Siberian orchestra. Although Aaron has slightly ruined it because he mocks me and sings it in an annoying voice!
