1. Favorite gift you are GIVING this year?
Ironically enough, I have yet to do ANY Christmas shopping, so I really can't answer this question! Monte and I have decided that we are going to scale back on Christmas presents this year and only get a couple of things for each of our kids. We're going to focus far more on the true meaning of Christmas: the birth of Jesus. We want our kids to first celebrate that - then enjoy giving gifts!
2. How many parties are you attending between now and Christmas?
As of right now, only one! I'm heading to MckMama's Christmas party later this month. I really wanted to host a party of my own, but alas, with our renovations going on, we no longer can do so. Things are just too crazy around here to have lots of people over! Next year, though, next year ... :)
3. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Oh Holy Night. I love it! It makes me think how amazing, how truly holy the night of our Savior's birth really was.
4. Who was your favorite elementary school teacher and why?
My 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Kostynick. She was so kind and loving, she called all of her students her angels. She was such an amazingly positive influence in my life and I loved her so much!
5. If you had a choice to live in any other period of time (other than now) what era would you choose and why?
I can't really choose a specific period, because I really don't know! I would love to go back to a time where things were much more simple. People worked hard. Faith and family was a major priority. You were grateful for what you had and were diligent in caring for your possessions (be it a home or clothing or ...). Back to a time when the world wasn't quite so fast paced.
