Christmas Survey

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper, and I even obsess trying to make sure I use all the paper evenly.
2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial and pre-lit. It works much better here in Florida than a real one.
3. When do you put up the tree? Usually on Thanksgiving or the day after...I like to get it up early.
4. When do you take the tree down? Usually the day after Christmas or the weekend after. I'm sick of all the decorations by then.
5. Do you like egg nog? No, not a fan.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Hmmm...Barbies, I loved playing with Barbies!
7. Hardest person to buy for? Keith.

10. Mail or e-mail Christmas cards? Mail, I love Christmas cards!
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? That's a hard one, nothing actually comes to mind. Keith is great at buying presents, as are all of our parents.
12. Favorite Christmas movie? Rudolph.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually in October.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? no, I would be worried I'd accidentally give it to the wrong person and get caught!
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Honey-baked ham. Yumm!
16. Lights on the tree? Of course, white ones.
17. Favorite Christmas song? I like so many, it's hard to pick! I've always liked Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas a lot, so I'll go with that one.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? My tree is a complete mismash of everything, and I love it all!
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Honey-baked ham.

Fun Times!

So! Here we go again! There will be an obnoxious amount of pictures once again, but it has to be done! Last weekend was Keith's company's Christmas party. Santa came, and the girls liked him, well two of them liked him I should say. Peyton wouldn't go anywhere near him.

Santa brought all the kids presents, which was awesome. Laynie got a skateboard, which she has been asking for for 6 months, so she was beyond excited. Riley got a Sleeping Beauty doll and Peyton got a learning laptop. They all loved their presents!

Last Sunday was Laynie's 6th birthday. It's crazy how fast time goes, I feel like just yesterday she was my little baby.

Friday night we went to cookies with Santa at Riley's school, I didn't get a good picture of the girls with Santa, but I did get some with their friends! This is Peyton with Bennett and his mommy Brenda.

Friends giving hugs!

Laynie and Lennon met when they were in the 2-year pre-school class together and were fast friends! Luckily our other children are within months of each other as well, so it works out great! Not to mention that Brenda and I get along great as well, so it makes playdates fun. This is Laynie, Lennon, Campbell and Riley.

Finally, today we went over to Disney to meet up with Destini and family! We met them at Hollywood studios and went to the Playhouse Disney show and to play on the playground. We had a great time, and the kids got along great. Trace is such a cutie! I loved his little grin, it was just adorable. We got some great pictures of the kids...even a kissy one. Peyton seems to have a way with the boys!!
