pam says tag..


Didn't really want to do this. pam said I had to. Why do I listen to her? It's not like she's my boss...
Wrapping paper or gift bags? However you want to wrap my present is fine...I do like the plain tissue paper with alot of pretty ribbons!

Real tree or Artificial? We bought an artifical tree this year. Our first year, we bought a live potted tree. It died within three days. I think it was a conspiricy!

When do you put up the tree?
We put this one up the day after thanksgiving.

Do you like eggnog?
Like it? No! Love it???? YES!

Easiest person to buy for? Dad probably was. Just pick out a box of chocolate covered cherries...what? you say he didn't even like them? you've GOT to be kidding!

Hardest person to buy for? I will just let you put your name in the blank.

Do you have a nativity scene?
Yes, mom and dad gave me the old, old one we had growing up. Baby Jesus with no arms, the angel with only half a face. I love it. We wanted to buy one in Germany, but with the exchange rate...

Mail or email Christmas cards?
I usually don't do either. I did do some cards this year. They are stamped and ready to go. I just need to mail them...

Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Never had a worst gift...all have been pretty darn sweet, even when the twins (Twins?) would wrap up yarn glued to cardboard.

Best Christmas gift you ever received? One is the Barbie Townhouse! Peggy and I wanted it sooooo bad. When dad brought it down, wrapped in tissue paper, it was so hard to go to bed. Another one was when I got the photo album my senior year. Mom had placed her wedding photo in it. I felt very lucky .

Favorite Christmas movie? "Christmas Story."

When do you start shopping for Christmas?
I start...um...um...after I um...mail the chistmas cards?

Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
Don't think so. I even ate the fruitcake Gwen sent me on my mission.

Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Ditto to everyone who said everything.

Favorite Christmas song? Tennesee Christmas

Travel at Christmas or stay home?
The past sooo many years we have travled. This will be Jheriko's first in his own home. SOOO excited.

Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? of course...i may not beable to spell that one with one d or two, though

Angel on the tree top or a star?
looking for a nice something. we now have a snowflake ornament that is pretty lame looking. I just don't look up!

Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? morning. Dad would let us open one christmas eve...if he got to pick it out. didn't take us long to realize it was HIS present we could open...

Most annoying thing about this time of year? those lines at the stores...

Favorite time for Christmas dinner? early. it's good to beable to pick at the leftovers!

What do you want for Christmas this year? I don't know. What are you getting me?


Yes, I know the picture of Jheriko is old, but our computer is being dumb right now...or I just don't know what I'm doing. I like to kink it's the computer...

Ahh...Jill....When you follow my advice it makes me so proud. :) Besides, didn't it feel good to post a blog? Don't you feel like you accomplished something? I know I do when I blog. And then I get to leave a cutesy little comment on your blog. Isn't this fun?

Oh, and I don't remember the yarn and cardboard. What was that all about? You'll have to remind me... at least it wasn't the year that me and Penny gave each other our stuffed animals, and then tried to take them all back. We forgot that we gave them to each other. Hmmm....we're kinda weird like that.

As I read through your blogs, I notice that you tend to listen to Pam an awful lot. Now, while it allows us to catch a glimpse into your life, you really don't need to do everything she says!!! You are older you know.

You know, Jill may be older, but I'm way cooler. Everyone should listen to me! :)
