Meme Friday #14

Hi friends! As promised, I am doing meme friday this week, even though I took the week off blogging to prep for this weekend and my church's Christmas program. That starts tonight...Encounter! 4 performances in 3 days...oooo boy! It's been a good week off...I've needed the time to prep and rest and just be. But this morning my mother in law is in town and on Parker duty, so I am back in the bedroom resting and blogging! (Ah the life!) Enjoy! Oh and this is kind of a long one today because I have some pictures....

So I am really in the Christmas spirit. I wish I could buy massive amounts of decor and just turn my house into a Christmas decor wonderland....however, I live in a 2 bedroom apartment...sooo, that might be a bit much. But I do have a couple of favorite decor items I would love to show you, first, my four homemade ornaments, next a wooden "nativity" my mom got me this year and finally, my other nativity scene...I got it as a wedding gift!

So my question for you is...

Do you have a favorite ornament or decoration in your home? What is it and why do you like it so much?!

Your turn, ask your own question and head over to An Island Life and link up!

1. Do you regift...and if so, do you have a regifting horror story?
I do not, or at least I try not to. I don't know that I have a horror story!

2. Do you know what you are getting for Christmas this year?
Nope, I know what I want for Christmas this year...well ok, no, I do know we are getting a TV, but that's because we've been saving up and are getting help from my husband's parents...but as for personal gifts for me, I have no clue!

3. Who brings the most gifts in your family, you or Santa?
Santa of course :)

4. What store do you love to by jeans from?
Kohl's, I love Kohls!

5. Christmas meal: Big, All Out Meal or Snacks and Apps?
We typically do Ham and then some sides....and then eat it as leftovers for the next few days.

Your turn, answer these 5 questions then head over to My Little Life and link up!


1. What in the world did I do to get so lucky to have a wonderful son? 

2. I like to be well fed.

3. Go Colts!

4. My friends sent me christmas cards and I love it!

5. I keep having blonde moments recently...well my whole life really, but yah.

6. Do you like snow or not.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Encounter!, tomorrow my plans include Christmas with my dad and stepmom and singing and Sunday, I want to sleep but I have two performances of Encounter! Woo!

Your turn, do these fill ins and then head to Friday Fill In and leave a comment with your link!

My favorite decoration would have to be our nativity scene. Not only is it the one I played with when I was a child, but it speaks of the real meaning of Christmas.

I love the home made ornaments from my kids.

I can't think of a favorite decoration. With a 4 year old decorating and undecorating the tree on a regular basis, my good ornaments are packed away until she's about 16 Lol!

Happy Friday to you!

I really don't have a favorite.

Have a great weekend!

I love my nativity (maybe that should be plural) I have 5 and I would love to get the Willow Tree one (but it is $$). Maybe the favorite it the Fisher Price little people one, my kids love to play with it and I hope that while they play with it it reminds them what Christmas is ABOUT.

1. Do you regift...and if so, do you have a regifting horror story?
I regifted the skinny Santa on the old fashioned, big wheel bicycle (that I mentioned last week). The person ultimately rejected it and it ended up on my mother's dresser.

2. Do you know what you are getting for Christmas this year?

3. Who bring the most gifts in your family, you or Santa?

4. What store do you love to buy jeans from?
QVC - Personify by Denim & Co.

5. Christmas meal: Big, All Out Meal or Snacks and Apps?
Big, All Out Meal

My favorite decoration is my daughters winter village. She is only 10 but my parents bought her a village that is worth more than $100. It had "Emily's Bakery" so they had to buy it for her...since her name is Emily. I want to keep it but someday will have to pass it on.

I have two favorite Christmas decorations. The first is a wooden nativity scene my great-aunt sent me the first Christmas I was married. It's simple and beautiful and I enjoy getting it out every year. The other is a sculpture with Santa and 3 dancing just makes me smile every time I see it, and it helps remind me not to get too stressed out over all the things that have to be done during the holidays!

Hi, Denise. Sorry I'm a little late. I also love Nativity scenes and personal ornaments collected over time. If I had to choose one favorite, it would be the very first and oldest Nativity from my mother.
