Christmas in Kansas City

Hey there friends!

I'm linking up with Michelle from Fabulous in First for today's Christmas questionnaire! Click the cute graphic below to link up :)

Hot Chocolate or Egg Nog?
Hot chocolate all the way!  Egg nog makes me want to gag - YUCK!  I'm not a coffee drinker so hot chocolate is my warm drink of choice :)

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa wrapped them at my house when I was growing up!  Santa was actually a very organized man and each one of us had our own wrapping paper.  It was always easy to identify Santa's presents because you knew which paper was yours :)

Colored lights or white?
Growing up, we always had colored lights.  I much prefer white - I think they are classic and beautiful!

When do you decorate?
I absolutely hate overlooking Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday) so I can't decorate until after.  Usually it takes me a couple of days to get over the Thanksgiving craziness and decorate!

Real or Fake Tree?
Fake allll the way.  Real trees seem like such a hassle!  Right now, my tree isn't pre-lit but I'd love to get one.  It seems even easier to manage.

What Tops Your Tree?
An angel.  My Grammy always had a star on her tree and we always had an angel growing up, but I think I like stars a little more (oops!  Sorry angels!)

Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?
I always loved waking up early and waiting impatiently with my brother until it was a decent hour for us to wake our parents and sister!  We always go see the Christmas lights on the Plaza in Kansas City and I love that!

Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
I don't.  I do remember begging for the board game Don't Wake Daddy and bawling my eyes out when the toy dad jumped up in the bed.  Haha!  I was such a strange child.

Do you prefer giving or receiving?
Giving all the way.  I loooove to see someone's face when I give them a gift.  Such a great feeling!

What is your favorite Christmas song?
I have several I like.  My ultimate favorite has to be Baby, It's Cold Outside.

Candy Canes.  Yuck or Yum?
YUM.  I especially love the white chocolate Hershey's Kisses with crunched up candy canes in them.  Delish!

Favorite Christmas Movie?
A Christmas Story.

Do you shop online or at stores?
This year, online all the way!  I don't know why it took me so long to do this.  Online Christmas shopping is way easier.  Plus, who doesn't love to see a package on their steps when they get home from work?!

Photo Cards, Letter, or Store Bought Card?
As long as they aren't accompanied by a bragging letter, I could care less.  Haha!  But in all seriousness, photo cards.  I love to see the pictures.

Hope you enjoyed reading!  Comment if you had any of the same thoughts :)

Merry Christmas,
