Tagged Twice!

Well I am sitting here waiting for the "Magic Cookie Bars" to come out of the oven for tomorrows Holiday Party at work so I figured I would answer two "tags" that I got in the last 48 hours.

TAG 1: from Jeanne is "Write 5 random facts about yourself"

Fact 1: My feet are the perfect length - 12 inches, which as we all know is a measure foot. Of course others would simply say my feet are big, especially for a woman. When I was only 8, I already wore a woman's size 10 shoe. Shoe shopping was always traumatic. It is probably why I don't have a lot of shoes.

Fact 2: My family lives in VT and I *STILL* can't ski ... (hmmm.. feet too long?)

Fact 3: I am most definitely a "CAT" person if made to choose. Dogs are sweet and fun and cool but I'd rather have a cat, any day...

Fact 4: I have only been "athletic" for about 7 years now, Better Late than Never!

Fact 5: Tiger Crickets that hide in our guest bathroom on cold night really freak me out and *ALWAY* require removal by Jim

Now onto Tag #2: from KLN is as follows:

1. Your favorite holiday memory.

Being 15 and getting to stay up after my little sisters went to bed and play "Santa" for the first time along with my parents. Christmas turned into a whole new experience in that moment!

2. Your favorite holiday cookie or treat.

My Grandma Winters " Chocolate Peanutbutter Balls" (NO COMMENTS FROM THE PEANUT GALLERY!!)

3. Where you will be over the holidays.

Sharon, Vermont for 7 days !! I CAN'T WAIT!

4. Your favorite holiday song or carol.

To SING: Silver Bells
To LISTEN TO: Anything by Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole or Karen Carpenter

5. A special holiday tradition in your family.

I guess over the years this has become a tradition since we keep doing it. Every year that we are together, my Sisters and I make it a point to go sledding down the front yard (my parents live on a mountain, very STEEP yard) for a few hours. And if you bring a significant other, they are coming along for the ride, at least once!!

We are never outside until well after 9PM or later and we always end up soaking wet, cold and aching from laughing and avoiding trees with our bodies. Mom and Dad always come out and watch but I don't think we have ever gotten them on a sled. This year will be Jim's first time doing the "G-Family Christmas" and you can bet he will be out in the snow with us!!

All these TAGS have me READY for Christmas! But for now, I need to pull the cookies out of the oven and get to bed!

Sweet Dreams!

Sharon, VT, I never knew! I went to law school in SoRo, and lived in Pomfret. We're practically neighbors (sorta ;-))!

I have too many, so here is a "memorable" one, when the donkey poo-d on the church floor, last christmas eve.

2. Your favorite holiday cookie or treat.

mom's oyster crackers...she has to hide them so i don't eat them all!

3. Where you will be over the holidays.

Sharon, Vermont for 10 days !! I CAN'T WAIT EITHER!

4. Your favorite holiday song or carol.

I have to agree with Holly...
Anything by Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole or Karen Carpenter

5. A special holiday tradition in your family.

again, i can't pick a favorite...so here are a few
1) sledding with my sisters
2) Cathy claiming she is going to sleep in and still waking us up at 6 am christmas morning, every single year
3) not having a proper dinner on christmas eve, instead eating a huge spread of appetizers and snacks

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU SISTER!!!

If I NEVER hear Silver Bells again, I'll be a happy girl! Yuk Yuk Yuk. (too many years of elementary school carol singing - especially THAT song)

but the Cookies sound YUMMY!

Have a GREAT Christmas!
