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 didn't get to write to Santa very often

2. Are you currently on the Naughty or Nice list? How did you get there? I am on the Nice list, of course!  I got there by being a good daughter, sister, friend, and teacher

3. Did you ship any gifts to friends and family this year? If so, which one traveled the farthest? I am ashamed to say I didn't get gifts in the mail on time--the farthest traveling one will be Virginia

4. Did you buy yourself a gift this year? I did not (yet)

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

6. Thinking of movies, Christmas is lucrative for Hollywood. Have you ever gone to a movie theater on Christmas Day? I have--it used to be so much fun

7. Have you ever suffered an embarrassing moment at the company Christmas party? I have not

8. What's your favorite beverage in cold weather? I am a die-hard Dunkin' iced coffee fan--year round!

9. Share a memory from last Christmas. it was a lovely Christmas day and the most fun was when my parents got to FaceTime my Virginia and Pennsylvania sisters


  1. Dunkin Iced Coffee! If I'm buying, that is. My trusty cold brew thingie gets a workout (the Dunkin is too far,lol)

  2. I haven't seen Elf yet, either. Where's it been? In years gone by, I think I'd have seen it a million times by now!

  3. I think that a lot of us will be doing Facetime this year.

  4. Our last day of school was yesterday, so I am hoping to watch some of the classic Christmas movies now. I have been watching all of the Hallmark ones though. They are so good. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.


  5. I will be doing Facetime with family as well. Better safe than sorry. I knew you would be on the nice list - how could you not? Merry Christmas and I hope you have a great day.

  6. I just watched Elf with the grands yesterday morning while I babysat them. It was fun to watch through their eyes.
