1. We have a few real trees in the past but we are in recent years, it’s all about the fake. Miss the smell of free pine though!

2. My favorite Christmas cookie is more of a Norwegian pastry. Kringla.

Celebrate your heritage and Mother's Day with Iowa Kringla

 

3. Christmas morning is usually at home…we’ll see what happens this year.

4. I’m all about the clear lights.

5. I’m sending Christmas cards this year!

6. My favorite present ever was Baby Tender Love.

7. The best gift I ever gave…I completely drew a blank here.

8. Always stockings and the ones I use were crocheted by my grandma.

9. No Christmas PJ’s at this house.

10. Favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night.

11. My favorite holiday tradition came to end with the passing of my grandma but it was always with all the family on my mom’s side on Christmas Eve. Big Norwegian meal after Church with gifts and a slide show put together by my Uncle Dale.

12. Early shopper but I like to make at least one last-minute purchase.

13. My favorite Christmas movie is It’s A Wonderful Life.

14. No favorite beverage – never tried Eggnog!

15. Yep, we always left cookies and milk for Santa.

That’s a wrap! Can’t wait to read your posts. Be sure to link them up!

Be blessed! ~ Carrie

    I've never tried eggnog either - doesn't appeal to me at all! LOL I think one of my favorite gifts that I GAVE was a scrapbook to my sister. I like DIY gifts. -lauren www.shootingstarsmag.net
    • DIY gifts are the best - heart touching for sure!
  • Jess @ Just Jess
    I don't think you are missing out on the eggnog. Yuck! Jess at Just Jess
    • LOL! I think you are right!
  • You've never tried eggnog? I always think I'm going to like it and then try it only to rediscover that I think it's gross. Haha.
    • That's why I don't try it.

    My boys LOVE eggnog; they tried it at their aunt's house one year and beg me to buy it every December. I can't even stand looking at the stuff-- YUCK! It's so thick. I have promised to try helping make eggnog cookies or cupcakes this year and I even said I'd try one. Hopefully in a dessert I won't mind the flavor.
    • I think the texture of it would gross me out. Like drinking yogurt. Yucky!
  • haha, I tried eggnog once when I was little and hated it so much I never tried it again...so I'm with you on the eggnog front. Love It's a Wonderful Life!
    • We are thinking alike, sister!
  • Just saw A Wonderful Life for the first time a few years ago and now I watch it every year!
    • I cry every time I watch it!
  • I can't imagine George or Dale in Christmas PJ's!
    • LOL! I have to agree with you on that one! This made me smile so much!
  • Oh my gosh...I LOVED baby tender love!!
    • My favorite baby doll ever!

    We used to leave cookies and milk for Santa too - though now that I live in the UK I guess it's going to be mince pie and sherry! #dreamteam
    • Ha! That is so cute! I've never had mince pie and I wonder if it's good or not.
  • This TBB Asks had the best set of questions...so fun! I have never heard of those Norwegian cookies...I'll have to give them a try. What sweet memories with your grandmother and family. Hope your week is wonderful!
    • Thank you, Tanya! Love being a part of TBB and my family heritage and memories too. Thanks for stopping by today.
  • Those pastries look delicious and I love that your stockings were made by your grandma- so special! I've never seen It's a Wonderful Life, but it's on my list to watch this year hopefully.
    • I hope you love It's a Wonderful Life!
  • Laura
    I've never heard of Kringla, but it looks delicious! I need to try it out! Loved reading this!
    • Thank you, Laura! I hope you love Kringla as much as I do!
