Meet Me On Monday

The Christmas Edition of Meet Me On Monday

A wonderful way for bloggers to meet new friends and get to know each other better.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
I use both but more wrapping paper than bags.

2. Real or artificial tree?
Real tree – I love the fresh pine scent.

3. When do you put your tree up?
I like to put the tree up two weeks before Christmas.

4. When do you take your tree down?
I usually take the tree down a day or two after Christmas day.

5. Do you like eggnog?
I don’t really like eggnog.

6. Do you have a nativity scene?
I have a small table-top nativity arrangement.

7. Favorite Christmas Movie?
Oh, that’s a hard one. I love most Christmas movies – especially the tear-jerkers - but, Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without watching, “The Christmas Carol.”

8. Favorite Christmas cookie?
I’m not much of a cookie eater but, my children love peanut butter cookies – so that is what I usually make.

9. Where will you eat Christmas dinner?
We’ll be joining my daughter and her future in-laws for Christmas dinner.

10. Angel, bow or star on top of your tree?
I have a star on the top of my Christmas tree.

11. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
The chaotic, last minute rush and the crowds pushing and shoving.

12. Do you like Fruitcake?
I have never liked Fruitcake.

13. What are you most excited about the holidays?
Being with family! It’s the only time of year that we all get together and it’s wonderful.

14. Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
On Christmas eve, the children are given one gift to open – otherwise, presents are opened on Christmas day.

15. Will you still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Not this year. :)

From our house to yours, Merry Christmas Everybody!

Love Susan


  1. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. Beautiful lyrics, Christmas is endearing,
    These days I wish peace and happiness come to your house.
    Happy Holidays!.
    a hug.

  3. Have a lovely Christmas with your family :)

  4. Following you now from MOnday hop. Merry Christmas and please follow me back when you can!!


  5. When I was a child we were allowed to open on gift on christmas Eve, I continued this tradition with my own children. The running joke in my house was, one gift, mom chooses, and it is usually pajamas! ( just wanted to make sure they all looked great in those Christmas morning photos! lol) Hope you have a wonderful and bright Christmas and New Years!

  6. Thanks for the kind thoughts...Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  7. I just discovered your blog today. You have beautiful pictures in your side bar (are those your daughters?)... love is a great thing, and especially when your children find it and are happy. Have a lovely and happy holiday with your future in-laws.


  8. Thanks for stopping by today, I am glad to be stopping back and following. I agree, I love A Christmas Carol too, its a tie for my favorite but I haven't watched it yet this year, I like the 1951 with Alastair Sim. Have a very Merry Christmas!!

  9. Hi again, Angela. The blonde girl in the top sidebar photo is my daughter, Jen with her fiancé. The man in the bottom photo is my son, John with my future daughter-in-law, Sylvia.
    Both my children are so happy having found their life partners as am I.
    Thanks for asking, my friend!

  10. so glade you stop by today! hope you have a wonderful Christmas
