The Christmas Tag!



I can't believe how fast the holidays came this year!! Christmas is like 3 week away, and I just decorated my house last night. I thought I would share some pictures of my tree and decorations and do 'The Christmas Tag'! 

The pictures above are of my tree, fireplace, and some random things. I'm not done decorated yet, so I might do a more detailed post when I'm done!

Now on to the tag! 

Questions 

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
I've always really loved Thr Grinch. I love the cartoon version, which I watched when I was way little, and the one with Jim Carrey is just awesome too. 

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
We do both. We spend Christmas Eve at my husbands parents house, and Christmas Day at my parents house. Growing up Santa always came on Christmas morning though. 

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
When I was probably 5 or 6, my dad took me around our neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. When we came home, Santa already came with all the presents! It was super exciting for me as a kid because that was the first time I got to open parents early and I just thought it was so amazing and magical haha! 

4. Favourite festive food?
This might sound weird, but I love all the appitizers my mom puts out on Christmas before dinner. Ham rolls, sausage and cheese and crackers and chex mix and cookies and I could go on forever. Haha!! But my favorite actual holiday food is probably stuffing, but that for thanksgiving. 

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
When I was a kid, my favorite was probably when I got a gameboy. More recently is was my vanity that my husband bought me two Christmases ago. 

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
I really love the bath and body works candle called Vanilla Snow Flake. 

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
We go to spend Christmas Eve with my husbands family. When I was growing up, we spent or at my grandparents house with all my moms family. 


8. What tops your tree?

Lol. This might sounds funny, but I do not have a tree topper so I put a Santa hat on there. 

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I always wanted one of those little power cars that kids can ride/drive around in lol!!

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Spending time with family and friends! Now that I have a niece and a nephew, it's so fun to watch them open their presents and play with toys!

I hope you all enjoyed this Christmas tag!! I tag all of you to do it! Let me know if you do so I can check out your post as well!

  5. Ashley, this was nice! I enjoyed reading your responses. What a lovely memory of you and your dad. It's those special moments that stay in your heart forever. You'll always cherish that moment. I saw the santa hat atop your tree! So cute! Toppers always got me! I would decorate the tree and then stand in wonderment what to top it off with. Sometimes I left it bare. It's great you spend time with both families. It's important to spend time with loved ones. Really nice post.

  6. The santa hat tree is so cute!! I might just have to start doing that ;) The memory with your dad is really sweet, I have to remember to do that with any future kids I might have. My parents aren't actually that big on celebrating Christmas, so we usually don't have decorations. I want to start decorating my room though, but.... I have to clean it first. ;-;

    2. Lol! When I saw the one of those cars response you wrote I was like I bet it was a Barbie jeep! I think almost every little girl wanted one of those jeeps especially if you played with Barbie dolls! I forgot about the dream boat! These are great tags to bring back Christmas memories! Hopefully I can get one done before Christmas!
