I've been tagged and a FREEBIE!!

WOW WOW WOW - thanks goes out to all those people that attended Moo Two's Birthday Chat @ DST Saturday night!! You ladies are awesome and I so appreciate you all for showing up!! I hope you enjoy your goodies!! And if you missed it - there was alot of goodies to be had!! You can check out our winners of the gifts here!!

Well, well, I've been tagged - by TragedyScrapinAnne - so here it is:

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Depends on the age of the person receiving it!! For adults I think bags are ok but for children wrapping paper - isn't that the fun of it, tearing the paper off?

2. Real or Artificial tree? Artificial of course!! A real one is nice and I like the smell but don't want to have to worry about it dying or the pine needles everywhere!!

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually not until the first week in December - but this year got it up right after Thanksgiving!!

4.When do you take the tree down? Huh - I can never remember this one - is it bad luck to leave up over the New Year or not to? hee hee Well, whichever it is that's when I take it down..

5. Do you like Eggnog? Of course - with a little knocker in it too!! Old joke - when I was a little girl my grandmother used to make this all the time and they gave me a little bit with some liquor in it and I must have gotten a little tipsy because I kept saying give me some more Eggknocker instead of Eggnog!! hee hee

6. Favorite Gift you received as a child? Gosh - that's hard - can't remember real good anymore - but probably a doll or something!!

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Of course - but didn't get it out this year!! Just one more thing for the little one to get into!!

8. Hardest person to buy for? My dh parents - what do you buy someone who seems to have everything?

9. Easiest person to buy for? My kids

10. Worst Christmas gift ever received? Oh - you know that game at most Company parties where you pick a gift and then someone can take yours if they like it - well, I got some kind of Polka Dance record - needless to say no one wanted it - and regift, yeah, right!! LOL

There you have it!! That was fun and the first time I had been tagged!! So, who am I going to tag next - I think I will tag Gloria Val Verde - my good friend at Moo Two!!

Finally, here's a FREEBIE for you!! I made another bragbook QP for you!! This is from Donna Wheway's Christmas Around the World kit!!
