Please share some magical holiday memories?
My favorite memories were the moment our son awoke and saw that Santa had eaten some of the cookies we left out and the reindeer had nibbled on the carrots and left remnants in the driveway. Then sending our son on a treasure hunt. Every Christmas, we would wrap up clues in little bags, boxes, or envelopes, and he would have to figure out one to the next. He was always so excited. Of course, at the end of the hunt was the one gift he had been hoping for, so the anticipation was delicious!
Wrap, gift bag or bow & go?
Gifts or gift cards?
Both, depending. But I always give books. Big surprise, huh? LOL They are perfect stocking stuffers.
Do you eat fruitcake?
Nope, but I make a great banana bread and date bread, both served with cream cheese on Christmas morning.
Do you head to the movies on the 25th?
Yep. Usually family fare. We save the adult dramas for later in the week.
What’s in your stocking? *wink*
I don’t have a clue. No winking. My husband can be sneaky.
What do you want in your stocking? *saucy wink aka swink*
Honestly, I have everything I need. Again, I’m so blessed, but if I were to hope (wink-wink)…perhaps a new, smaller, faster computer that could handle all the photos that I have to do for my blog. Who knew when I became a writer that I would have to take so many photographs of food! But culinary/foodie mystery lovers love to see photos and gather recipes.
Do you head out on the 26th into the madness to exchange or shop for anything?
Not a chance. I don’t do shopping crowds. My heart pounds; I can’t breathe. Ugh. On the other hand, I might make my way to a bookstore. Less frenzy. I’m always into buying books.
Thank you so much.
Happy Holidays from my house to yours!
Back at you. Enjoy every moment. And believe in the magic.
