Growing up I always had colored, but on my tree this year I have white!

Usually right after Thanksgiving...but this year I did it the middle of Novemebr..I couldn't wait to decorate MY own house!

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?

This is hard...I love my grandmas stuffing and gravy..and also cheesy potatoes!

Driving up north to see my grandparents! We would always listen to Nsync's christmas album and I remember the excitment to see my family!

8. When and how did you  learn the truth about Santa?

Yes, but never in the same place!!

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?

11. Snow..love it or dread it?

I LOVE it for Christmas (nothing better than a white Christmas), but after New Year's I get sick of it...I am super bummed there is not snow this year...

12. Can you ice skate?

No....I would not call what I am able to do ice skating haha
