It's now time for a bit of Monday Madness!
1. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? If not, when will you be starting?
Technically I started last January as I have for the past couple of years since I found this great little country store down in Pontiac that sells all their Christmassy stuff for a HUGE discount. Now don't get all bent out of shape family; I figure if I can save 75% off something, hey why not, right? And I recently purchased a few items that I just couldn't pass up at a local bazaar.
2. What are your favorite holiday goodies (baked goods, etc.)?
Mmmmmm.... I love the fudge my sister makes every year at Christmas time and I love those things called (now I can't remember the name); they have chocolate chips and coconut and ...ooh, ooh, I think they're called magic cookie bars. Yum. Love those and of course the traditional sugar cookies decorated with little sprinkles. You know what else I like that I think used to come out at Christmas is those Mexican wedding cake cookies. Does anyone know how to make them????
3. Do you decorate for Christmas? Inside, outside or both? When will you be putting your decorations up? Since I've lived in this place we do decorate the outside; prior to that, no. I always put a Christmas tree and lights up inside too. Oh and I have lots of little snowmen and Christmassy candles that I set out for the holiday season. I love decorating for this holiday.
