Real tree or fake tree? I LOVE the smell of real trees and had them for a while but now we have a pre-lit fake tree...mostly because of the convenience but now that I have a little person around here I'm even more glad to have a fake one. Here's the trick...light evergreen scented oils/candles in the house & it'll smell like the real thing! :)
What is your least favorite thing about the holidays? Worrying too much about the Christmas budget and losing sight of what it's really all about!

What is your favorite thing to do/build in the snow? I love to watch it fall when it's coming down in huge flakes...but I also love a good snowball fight!

What is your favorite holiday food? Christmas cookies, Stuffing, Pie...I love it all!!
How did you find out that Santa wasn't real? My mom told me because she thought I already knew and was just "milking" it. Boy was that a blow! (I was actually okay with it when they told me I could help play Santa for my younger sister)
Who do you want to be under the mistletoe with? Justin!
Have you bought all your presents yet? Only one! I'd better get on it! I just got lists from most of my family today!

What do you usually get in your stocking? all kinds of stuff...I get a stoking from my hubby and one from my Mom too! Little trinket stuff...candies, batteries, pencils, gift cards, Post-it Notes, Scrapbooking embellishments (eyelets, brads, Tombo's, etc), gum, mints...love it!!
What is your favorite religious Christmas carol? Well it's not really a carol, but I love the song: Jesus was Born Today ...Olson Family Favorite! (Thanks Dad!)
What is your favorite non-religious Christmas song? I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause...and others, It's too hard to choose.
How long do you leave up your Christmas decorations? Too long...if that's possible! I usually get them up late so I like to enjoy them before it's time to take them down. As long as they're down by February I think that's okay! :)
