I love to watch grandchildren open their presents. I really don't need anything. I love doing for other people.

No,,My decorations are on the tree and I love to put out my ice skaters that we used when I was a small girl. They are on the end table.

Making all our favorite receipe's that were made when I was a little girl. Putting shoes at the back door New Year's Eve..Santa's on his way back to the North Pole and he leaves something small in our shoes. Dave and I always go to the mall the day before Christmas and just sit and watch the people..
#13 What is a favorite thing about the holiday....
Watching children at this time of year.. it's just so magic.. they get so excited about getting presents and Santa coming for a visit.. I love the Christmas program the children put on for church.. The songs , candlelight service and the genuine love of Baby Jesus.. Putting out the nativity scene under my tree. This year giving Ben a nativity scene and watching him give baby Jesus a kiss.

I like it when you said, "as long as I am with my family I don't care where I am (for Christmas)".....I agree! Wonderful learning more about you:))

all your favorites are mine too! Probably the best is Christmas Eve service when I finally set down and allow myself to enjoy the reason for the season. I'd never heard the shoes on New Years Eve, sounds like a good idea to me!

I love this list! It's let me get to know you just a bit better!! We have some of the same favorites!! One in particular is the movie "The Christmas Story." As I write this, it's playing on the TV's here in my office where I work...Thanks to me, its been on all morning, hearing 'stuck-stuck-stuck!!!' never gets old, at least not to me!!

Enjoy your day!!!
