Finish the Sentence - Christmas Edition


Today I'm also linking up with Jake & Holly for their Finish the Sentence link party.  Here we go!

1. My favorite Christmas was.../is going to be this one.  It's Caroline's first Christmas, and Emily's first where she really knows what's going on and is really getting into it.  

2. The worst Christmas I had... was the one right after Jerry and I broke up when I was 17.  I thought my life was over -- I was really pouty and dramatic.  I was the only reason I didn't have a good time that year.  It was really stupid.

3. That one gift that made me scratch my head and say, "Hmmmm" was... let's just say it was something that "accidentally" broke all on its own soon after Christmas.

4. One year I.... had a really bad nosebleed and my mom and I spent the entire Christmas Eve party in my aunt's bathroom trying to get it to clot.  I wasn't even wearing a red shirt...

5. I think the worst gift to give is.... the only thing I can think of is fruitcake.  Any gift that someone has put thought into and is really excited to give someone else is a great gift, regardless of whether the recipient actually needs or wants it.  But fruitcake... nobody likes that crap.  Nobody wants it.  Why do they still make it??


6. At Christmastime I typically.... feel like I need to refill my Xanax prescription.


7. Typically, family Christmas.... was spent in my hometown.  But this year we're staying home and having family to come to us (thank you family in advance for making the trip -- you are awesome!!)

8. If I could change one thing about the Holiday season.... I would make it stop sneaking up on me so fast every year.


9. It is so hard to buy for.... 10 year old boys.  Sorry nephew Jake, you're getting an iTunes card & some candy.  I have no idea.

10. My favorite Christmas tradition is... this year we're going to start the "Christmas Eve Box" tradition with our girls.  Caroline won't know what's going on, but Emily will be really excited, I think.  We are going to wrap up some new PJs, a new Christmas DVD (Arthur Christmas this year), some hot chocolate & popcorn and let her stay up a little late to watch the movie all snuggled under a blanket on the couch.

{It will be something similar to this}

11. Santa, baby, bring me a .... Honda Odyssey, or a new washer & dryer, really either would fine.  Mmk, thanks.

(Note: This post was supposed to be published before the Festive Favorites link up post... which explains why I said something about "really enjoying Christmas-themed linkups"...)


  1. The Christmas Eve box is such a sweet tradition! There's nothing like snuggling on the couch watching Christmas movies. And your worst gift was the leg lamp from A Christmas Story wasn't it? jk.

    1. No it wasn't the leg lamp... but close ;) Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. believe it or not I had a piece of fruit cake last year and it was so damn good. but it was homemade, and not regifted from the year before...hehe...thanks for linking with us!

    1. I can see homemade fruitcake being edible. The ones in stores just look like someone put DOTS candy in stale cake batter and threw in some chopped green peppers for fun. To each his own, I guess :)

      & thanks for your comment! I feel special ;)
