Enquiring Minds Want to Know Meme Week 16 PLUS Comment Giveaway

This meme is hosted by Dollycas Thoughts for Thursdays - which are hard for me to make.  The goal is to get to know our fellow bloggers and visitors better. Each week Dolly asks some questions for us to answer and then link up. I am late doing the post but I am trying to to participate as I would like to learn more about blogger and follower friends.


1. What is the present you want Santa to bring the most?
I don't have anything I really want - although if I could get someone to clean up and speed up my computers that would make me REALLY happy.  I am thrilled to be having both our children here and my Dad!
My hubby and I are lucky we are matched.  We celebrated our 25th anniversary on November 30 with an exchange of a card and a candlelit dinner prepared and set by my DH.  I was in the doghouse for not taking pictures.  We have agreed to get ourselves an exercise bike for Christmas because we both need it. :) He'll pick it up so I don't know what it looks like yet.

2. Do you have a big meal on Christmas or just snack all day?
We do have a big meal although I would be just as happy to snack. I believe I mentioned before that my DH is our cook. He tends to cook for an army. :) This year we will be doing breakfast because then my Dad and Stepmom will be driving to have dinner with my sister and her clan.   This morning my DH made breakfast at church for the men's prayer group and wives.  (He does breakfast for eight to twelve men every Tuesday morning.)
Here is the buffet table so you get an idea how he cooks.  From right to left: warm fruit surprise, cinnamon french toast, sausage gravy, ham, scrambled eggs with cheese, biscuits, potatoes, bacon and sausage. I had to stop him or he would have made pancakes too!  Even with twenty people there was plenty left over.

3. Do you read Christmas books this time of year, is there a special one you reread year after year?
I sure want to but the review schedule hasn't permitted that this year.  My fault for having too many books to review.  I thought I would do better going into 2011 but I already have 20 lined up for the first two months.
"Too many books; not enough time."  BUT there is one story we read every year at Christmas and that is the Nativity Story from the Bible- Luke 2:1-38.  We also read with the children "The Night Before Christmas."

The Night Before Christmas

Your turn to share.  This week we will do another Christmas book from the Christmas Books for Giveaway.
Rules: a) Must be a follower; b) Share a comment on any (or all) of the three questions above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller 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 next Friday, December 24 at 10PM central. I probably won't announce the winner until Sunday when festivities have quieted.
