5 Question Friday

Ah, it's Friday!!  I love Fridays....or at least I used to before I started working every other weekend!  No, I still love Fridays!!  In 2 Fridays it's Christmas Eve!!!  Can you believe it....Christmas is almost here!!!!  I can't wait....the boys can't wait...can you wait???  Tyrique asked me yesterday if they can open a present early!!  I looked at him as if he was crazy and told him N.O!!!  I know he is excited but he has to be excited for 2 more weeks and then he can open all his presents :)

I wanted to mention an awesome giveaway going on till the end of the day.  Pennie from Mom Thoughts has the coolest giveaway where she is giving away two copies of the move Flipped.  This is one Giveaway that I would love to win....that movie looks so good :)  Click here to go to Pennie's blog so you too can enter to win :)

Mama M hosts 5QF as you all know by now so just click on the cool button above to play along :)

1. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

We open the presents on Christmas Eve.  We eat a really nice dinner with everyone in their dressy clothes at 6!!!  Then after dinner the dishes get done and then the presents are opened.  

2. What is your favorite Christmas cookie (or candy)?

Kiffels!!!  My Aunt Sharla taught me how to make them last year but her kiffels are the best!!!  This year she sent me some kiffels with the Christmas boxes and I am so happy :)  They are already half done....the boys are loving them too :)

3. What's the worst Christmas gift you've ever received?

I don't know??

4. Christmas song that you love?

This Christmas with Chris Brown.....just writing it on here got it stuck in my head and now I will be singing it all day :)  I love that song!!

5. How many trees do you put up?

ONE!!!  That is enough for me!!!  I haven't put one up yet this Mamma is making me all the decorations for our little tree.  I am so excited to see how it turns out :)

Kiffels???? What are kiffels??? This must be an Icelandic thing. I'll have to google it. My favorite Christmas cookie are the cutout sugar cookies with icing on top. I haven't made them yet, but Bridgette nees a bunch for her youth group Christmas party next Wednesday night, so it looks like I'll be baking next week.
One tree is enough for me, too! That is the one thing I've done so far in preparation for Christmas...I'm not doing so well on the prep this year. Today I'm wrapping, with my friend Shelly's help.
We open 2 gifts (an ornament and pajamas) the 22nd or 23rd (our Christmas Eve) and then the rest of our family's gifts the 23rd or 24th (our Christmas Morning) and then usually travel 5 or 6 hours to our other families to celebrate two more times over the holidays for more gift unwrapping. Our kids get a lot of presents! They usually only get 4 or 5 each from Santa - sometimes only 3. This year it's 3, plus ornament and pj's...and 2 of the 3 are shirts for Aaron. He will still be spoiled to the hilt. He's getting his phone...and he'll be happy as a clam with that!
