Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Leave your answers on your blog or email it. Thanks for the idea, Jeanette! :)
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper, especially when I use cute little fabric ribbons and crepe paper... It makes me ridiculously happy. There are some bags that are so cute I have to clap when I see them, however.

4. When do you take the tree down? Usually after New Years Day.
5. Do you like eggnog? No, besides....Mike and Zach would beat me down if I tried to take it from them.

Absolutely, although one year at Mike's, Caroline put on so many lights, she had to wear sunglasses because the lights were so bright. It was the brightest tree I have ever seen!!
