    Favorite Candy - Those round white chocolate things in yellow wrapping

    Favorite Cookie - Candy Cane cookies

    Favorite Show - Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer (old claymation version)

    Favorite Light Color - Red, White, and Blue. If by itself and on a house, then red.

    Favorite Tradition - Spending time with family and not thinking about work. Putting up the manger with my son......thank you Matze. The green ornament. Decorating the tree with you and the kids. Driving around looking at Christmas lights. Thomas the Engine. Wearing Santa slippers (you guys at least, because men don't wear slippers) and Santa hats. Singing Christmas songs. Mistletoe. Spending time with family and not thinking about work.

    Hot Cocoa or Tea - Men don't drink tea, but they love hot cocoa!

    Marshmallows or Whipped Cream in your Cocoa - A little bit of one, and a little more of the other, not in that order

    Fake Tree or Real - It's not Christmas if I don't get to saw something

    Favorite Board Game - "My Little Pony" or "Hullabaloo" (not really a board game, but super fun and loaded with action)

    Favorite Christmas Book - "Horton Hatches the Egg" (I know it's not Christmassy, but it touches all seasons)

    Favorite Tree Ornament - Green ornament thingy, you know what I mean

    Love you,

  2. To make the family complete, I'll add mine. :-)
    Favorite Song - What Child is This, Carol of the Bells (the sung version), Mary did you know, and many more. There are hardly any Christmas songs I don't like.

    Favorite Candy - Although I don't have a favorite one, I do not discriminate any candy. :-)

    Favorite Cookie - Jam Thumbprints

    Favorite Show - It's a wonderful life. Saw it for the first time this year. I think I can now have full American Citizenship....

    Favorite Light Color - Outside: Red and White. On tree and windows: Multi-colored.

    Favorite Tradition - Decorating the tree with all of us, listening to music, baking cookies with the kids, wrapping presents, making presents, making presents with the kids, David and Nathan putting up the manger, going on drives to look at lights, drinking hot cocoa, reading Christmas books, singing Christmas songs, the green tree ornament where my husband "hides" a new message of love to me every year.

    Hot Cocoa or Tea - That's a tough one. Depends on my mood.

    Marshmallows or Whipped Cream in your Cocoa -
    Don't like marshmallows, so it's whipped cream.

    Fake Tree or Real - Real (thanks my wonderful hubby for getting it every year!)

    Favorite Board Game - Probably the shapes/colors game from my mom for the kids. Ticket to Ride for us.

    Favorite Christmas Book - The little drummer boy by Ezra Jack Keats.

    Favorite Tree Ornament - Green ornament. All of our ornaments have such wonderful memories attached to them though.
