WEEK 15 QUESTIONS
1. Do you have an artificial or real Christmas tree?
We vary and have had both many years.
We have a live tree this year but may also put up an artificial tree. Above is our tree from 2007 which I think our daughter decorated as we don't usually use those gold balls for the tree but for window valance decorations.
2. Do you feel you decorate just enough, over the top, or not enough?
Just enough for each year as the spirit moves us!
One year we had LOTS of outdoor decorations including deer (like above), bears, snowman, presents and three car train. And of course the nativity. That was maybe five years ago before both children moved out. Last year DH gave those decorations to our daughter and son in law who have more energy (physical if not electrical) to put them up. We'll be having Christmas here this year so we may have to borrow some of them back. :)
3. Do you have a favorite Christmas Cookie, if you have a recipe, please share?
I am not the cook in our family. But my mother always used to make Sandtarts. Here is a link to a recipe I found at Chickens in the Road Blog.
So who else from my followers wants to share on any of these questions? How about I offer a Christmas book or Christmas decoration to a commenter? I'll be doing a post of Christmas books and decorations available for this Giveaway in the next day or so.
Rules: a) Must be a follower; b) open internationally and an international winner may get a book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made by Friday 10PM.
