Happy Holidays! (from the archives)

1. As you can see, Sam loved giving her annual wish list to Santa. Yet some children are reluctant to climb into Jolly Old St. Nick's lap. Did you enjoy the tradition or were you shy? Or did you by pass it altogether -- either because you wrote him a letter or because your family didn't celebrate Christmas? I don't remember any strong feelings about Santa but now I LOVE SANTA

2. Are you currently on the Naughty or Nice list? How did you get there? I am on the Nice list because I'm a school teacher and everybody knows teachers are always on the Nice list. 😉

3. Did you ship any gifts to friends and family this year? If so, which one traveled the farthest? I haven't gotten around to shipping presents to my Virginia and Pennsylvania sisters yet (I'm still waiting on some items to get here)

4. Did you buy yourself a gift this year? hmmm... nothing specific (yet)

5. What's your favorite holiday-themed movie? Have you seen it yet this year? I love Elf and I have not watched the whole thing yet

6. Thinking of movies, Christmas is lucrative for Hollywood. Have you ever gone to a movie theater on Christmas Day? I have

7. Have you ever suffered an embarrassing moment at the company Christmas party? no

8. What's your favorite beverage in cold weather? I love hot chocolate to warm myself up but the reality is that I drink iced coffee year-round

9. Share a memory from last Christmas. it was a lovely, relaxing day filled with delicious food, family, and much laughter

You're cutting that shipping thing a little close. I'd be sweating it if I were in that position. I hope you have a great holiday (and I like Santa more now too, than I did when I was a child).

I drink ice water all year round because I don't like the taste of room temp water. Like you, I warm up with hot tea or cocoa, and then switch back to water.

School teachers are always on the nice list. Truth! 🤜🏻🤛🏻
Must try your movie. It sounds like fun!
Loved the answer to #4. The YET” part... I may get myself some little thing..maybe a Christmas pin.
Merry, Merry! Safe travels. Lots of hugs!

I drink ice water year round too. If I were alone and had all the right ingredients, I'd fix myself a big cup of hot chocolate (made with half and half) topped with whipped cream, but I haven't done that in years.

We tried going to a Chinese restaurant for dinner one Christmas (isn't that a cliche thing to do?) because we weren't going to be having our family dinner until 3 days later...but with all the Chinese restaurants in town, we couldn't find one that was open.

Elf is a fun movie. I have not seen it in a while.
Santa came to visit the kids Thursday. So much fun! Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

Most of what I've ordered has gotten here at this point, but a couple of things are due next week. It's a good thing we aren't celebrating until the 28th.

We seem to be a bunch of hot chocolate lovers
