I was tagged by Cathy at Psychic Mama to participate in this Christmas Meme. Be sure to visit her! She's a regular on my blog and is such a sweetheart with her comments!
1.) Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yes, I haven't had to do too much shopping though, I've won a few giveaways and have a few reviews set back for the kids to open. I only need to buy my dad a digital photo frame and a gift card for my uncle...oh and spoil the kids some more ;)
2.) Tell me about one of your special traditions.
I don't think we have any special traditions, we always open 1 gift on Christmas Eve, but I think that's it. But one special thing we do here in town is Santa rides all through town, up and down EVERY street on a fire truck and if you and the kids are outside, he'll stop, get off and give the kids a candy cane and let you take pictures. Been going on since I was little, and now my kids get to experience it.
3.) When do you put up your Tree?
As soon as the spirit hits us! This year it was the beginning of November.
4.) Are you a Black Friday shopper?
I went last year, and I was going to go this year but I didn't have transportation to get there, so I just shopped online.
5.) Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
HOME! This is where my daddy is!
6.) What is your funniest Christmas memory?
Hmmmm.....I don't think I have one.
7.) What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
Tim Allen in Santa Clause (1, 2, & 3) oh and The Grinch!!!

Not too much, although we try to make at least 1 batch of hard candy each year.
9.) Fake or Real Tree?
Fake! I can't handle the mess of a real one.
10.) What day (as a Mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?

11.) Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
Yep. Mostly because we set out a few gifts unwrapped as if Santa put them there already put together.
