A Peek Inside My Christmas


Here’s a peek inside our family Christmas…


I’ve been tagged…again. This time by Diane at Good Mourning, Glory! I wasn’t going to play along, but then I received this Christmas-themed getting-to-know-you, so I thought I would combine the two. I’m not going to tag anyone in particular. TAG! You’re all it if you want to play along.



A Christmas 25 Questions


  • 1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both. Gift bags are easy, but wrapping paper is more fun.
  • 2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. See pictures and read about our tree trimming here and here.
  • 3. When do you take the tree down? January 7, the day after Epiphany.
