On the fourth post of Christmas I'm going to share with thee...

a meme by my Mommy!

Hey pups...I'm feeling in the holiday spirit so I thought I would let my Mom post today. She was very interested in doing the meme that a bunch of your pawrents have done so I thought I'll let her do it too. Santa Paws...are you paying attention to that????

Anyhowl...I give you my Mom...take it away Mom.

Thanks Ruby! Hi doggies! Hope you are all being good! You know Santa is watching! I want to thank you and your parents for all the wonderful cards we've been recieving. We have enjoyed reading each and really is one of the highlights of the season.

Um Mom, could you speed it up a little, we don't have all day!

Ruby, be nice. It's not too late to tell Santa you've been naughty! Pups, I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday season! Here we go...

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper. I usually pick a 'theme' for the's been snowflakes for the last few years.

2. Real tree or Artificial? As a kid all I wanted was a 'real' tree. As an adult I realized what a pain (and how expensive) they were. I now have an artificial...and it's pre-lit. Yes, I'm cheating.

3. When do you put up the tree? It varies...and so far this year, it's not up yet, but I'm getting there.

4. Wreath on your door? Yes, it's euycalyptus...I just love the smell.

5. Do you like eggnog? One word for you...YUCK!

6. Favourite Christmas gift received as a child? A
Mrs. Beasley doll...I just loved her!!!

7. Easiest person to buy for? Ruby, of course

8. Least easiest? Everyone else - LOL

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, it's a
Precious Moments one...I liked it enough at the time---I got it years ago. Here's the one I really want!!!

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Both

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I've gotten things I don't like/need, but they have never been that bad

12. Favourite Christmas Movie? 'A Christmas Story', of course!

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually in December, much later than I should.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Nope

15. Open presents on Christmas eve or morning? One on Christmas Eve and all the rest Christmas Day.

16. Lights on the tree? Yes, little white ones...none blinky. I'm kinda boring.

17. Favourite Christmas song? 'Winter Wonderland'

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Home if I can help it.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Heck you need proof???

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Varies...I have a stained glass star and two Looney Tunes (Taz and Tweety) angels. I alternate between the three.

21. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas? Bagels and Lox...oh and pierogies

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Grouchy people who leave their shopping till the last minute. I know I leave my shopping till the last minute, but I accept my fate. Some people are just downright nasty about it. I hate that!

23. Favourite Tree ornament, theme or colour? I have too many favorites...but I think my collection of Rudolph ornaments would have to be it. Gotta love
Bumble !

24. Favourite for Christmas dinner? Prime rib with popovers and mac N cheese!

25. Brussels Sprouts - love or hate them? DOUBLE YUCK!

26. Favourite accompaniment to the Christmas Pud? Never had Christmas Pud...but Christmas cookies are my favorite holiday dessert.

27. Favourite Christmas Carol? "Caro of the Bells"

28. Your very Favourite Christmas Thing? Time Off...and staring at the Christmas tree lights with all the other lights off in the house off. Weird, I know!!!

29. A Christmas wish! Health and Happiness to all!!!!

30. Tag a Seasonal Six – Not going to tag anyone, but go ahead and do this one if you was FUN!!

Thanks Mom... Hope you enjoyed Mom's little 'blog-by'. And I promise not to be naughty (hee hee hee) Oh, and since it is my blog, you totally need a picture of me, right???

Hey Ruby,

Thank you for your Christmas card, we just got it today!

Happy holidays!


PS: You reminded me of my friend whom I love so dearly when we were living in Korea. His name is Gus and like you, he's a boston terror (I mean terrier). He is now back to his home in Texas.

You were very NICE, Ruby, to let your mom take over your blog today, and I'm sure Santa was watching you be nice.

Thanks for letting her post, we sure enjoyed reading it! Motch likes to turn off the lights in the house except for the Christmas ones, too.
