How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Star first then ornaments
Snow, Love it or dread it?
I have only been in "real" snow twice. I like it enough I suppose but I don’t think I want to shovel it and remove it from my car…
Real tree or fake tree?
I grew up with a real tree but we now have a fake tree in our home. And since pine needles are bad for dogs it will probably stay that way…since my dogs pretty much run the house!
Do you remember your favorite gift?
I have one each year…nothing from my childhood really stands out. I'm sure my Barbie dream house was real score!

We send cards and I'm sure once our family starts to get bigger and more exciting things start to happen we'll send a letter.
