Five Question Friday - 15 days until Christmas

Eeek, it's been almost a week since I've posted!  I need to be better about posting.  This week (my weekend) was long; both boys were sick and whiny = awful.
So, let's start off my week (Fridays are my Mondays) with the usual Five Question Friday.  Link up at Mama M's blog if you participate.
1. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
     Usually we do Christmas Day; however, both hubby and I are working all weekend (Friday thru Sunday), so we'll probably be doing Christmas the following Tuesday or Wednesday.  It's going to be a stressful Christmas weekend that I'm not looking forward to.

2. What is your favorite Christmas cookie (or candy)?
     The rainbow colored candy canes.  They aren't peppermint flavored, I think they're cherry flavored.  Those are my favorite.

3. What's the worst Christmas gift you've ever received?
     A video game from my husband (boyfriend at the time).  It was one of the first gifts he got me and I was so hoping to something different.  I think I even told my girlfriends that was the one thing I didn't want.  My ex-boyfriend used to  buy me junk like that all the time.  I played video games, but so wanted something different.  Needless to say, husband hasn't made that mistake again.

4. Christmas song that you love?
     I just posted this somewhere...
Angels We Have Heard On High, O Holy Night and Little Drummer Boy
5. How many trees do you put up?
     Just one, more than one would give more for the cat(s) to get in to.

Friday Fill-Ins - On Saturday!

I went home sick from work yesterday, so I didn't get a chance to do my Friday fill-in.  This week, there's 2 different fill-ins.  The first is the traditional and the second is a list where you have to identify Christmas songs by the initials of the first words of the first line of each song.  I'm going to try my hand at both!  Don't forget to link back here.

1. The best thing about a birthday celebration is THE FOOD.

2. Through the passage of time.

3. I went shopping recently and the most interesting thing I bought was cars for my son.

4. A fun child's game is any game.

5. The reason is it's a joy to see the excitement and smiles on their faces.
6. Lake Tahoe is snow and cold.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sleep, tomorrow my plans include working and Sunday, I want to stay home, but will be working!

1. HYAMLC: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
7. DTHWBOHFLLLLLLLL: Deck the Halls with Bows of Holly, Fa La La La La La La La La
9. JTTWTLHC: Joy To the World, The Lord Has Come

I tried my best racking my brain for these songs, but am not having any luck at the moment.  Leave a comment if you have the answer! :)

Five Question Friday - Making a list

Don't forget to link up over at Mama M's blog!
1. What's on the top of your holiday wish list and why?!
     Nothing at the moment.  I can't seem to figure out what I want.  Every time I think of something, I just tell myself, "well, I don't really NEED it" and then cross it off my mental list.  Hubby keeps pestering me to give him a list, so I guess I need to start working on it.

2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?

     My favorite isn't a gift that I received, but I gift I had given.  It was the 52" television that I had delivered for my hubby.  Although, I had this whole elaborate plan to have it delivered and set up since I was 8 months pregnant, but things got messed up and I ended up having to tell hubby before it was delivered.  He still liked it though.
3. If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up?

     Hmmm, I do quite enjoy my job as a 911 dispatcher.  It's a job that isn't necessarily the same everyday.  But there are times where I wish I would have gone into teaching.
4. When do you put up your tree?
    It depends what our work schedule is like.  This year, it went up the day before Thanksgiving, but without ornaments on it.  We just decorated it yesterday.

5. What is your favorite Holiday?
     Christmas - I love the decorations, the music and just the winter feeling in the air.

Top Ten Tuesday - One of those days

Thanks to Oh Amanda for this week's Top Ten Tuesday idea!
Have had one of those days?

1.  Where you worked (or were up) all night?

2.  Then came home, ready to go to bed, and everyone is up and just getting started for the day?

3.  And then once you said your "good mornings" and gave kisses, you were SO excited to climb into the nice warm bed.

4.  Just to get woken up a little later because your husband/wife wants to ask you if s/he can wear a certain beanie.

5.  Then proceeds to say that they're going to take a shower in the same room where you're sleeping.

6.  When s/he knows that the little one is going to come in and want to play while s/he is in the shower.

7.  Then, just when you get settled back in to sleep, and the boys decide to leave the house for while

8.  The little one decides to test out the doorbell several times

9.  And the cat isn't happy that he thinks he's alone in the house now and proceeds to start yowling/meowing.

10.  And then it's time to get up and go back to work until the wee hours of the morning.

Not that that's the day I've had or anything.  Happy Tuesday!  It's now my weekend!!!

Meet Me On Monday

It's Monday and I'm still stuck here at work.  Been here since 5:45pm last night.  I've got a little less than an hour left, but then I come back at 3:45pm.  I hoping to sleep all day.
Enough of that, let's get going with the Meet Me On Monday questions.  Thanks to Never Growing Old for the questions.

1.  What is your favorite way to eat chicken?
     I guess my favorite way would have to be marinated and baked.  Lately though I'll just throw it in the crock pot with some sauce and let it simmer for several hours.

2.  Have you decorated for Christmas yet?
     Yes!  We have the outdoor decorations up and went and bought a fake tree last week.  We haven't decorated the tree just yet because we're having our carpets cleaned this week and I wanted to be able to easily move the tree.  My son is loving laying under the tree.  Sad we didn't do our tradition of cutting one down, but it's proving to have been a better idea to get the fake one.

3.  What is your favorite article of clothing?
     Sweatpants/pajama bottoms.  They're SO comfortable.  Ahh, I wish I was home right now in a nice warm pair, snuggled in bed.  Almost time to go home.

4.  Do yo pay your bills online or write checks the old fashion way?
     It wasn't until recently that I started paying bills online.  And actually the majority of my bills are on auto-pay.  I found myself forgetting to pay them ever since I had my son, so it was easier to put them on auto.  There are still some bills that I write checks for, but majority is done online.

5.  Do you make Christmas cookies?
     No, but I have visions of someday doing it with my son.  I'd like to make sugar cookies and decorate them.
