    1. What is your fav thing about the holiday season?
    All the baked goods my momma sends us :P (I can bake but her stuff is to die for lol) Also the look and reaction of our daughter with the decorations, gifts, Santa etc. She'll be in the terrible twos on the 22nd. Hopefully she doesn't shred everything under the tree lol
     
    2. Who is the most difficult to shop for & why?
    FMIL & FFIL because they never use anything we give them! And when we ask what do they want they say oh nothing.
    3. What are you getting FI/DH?
    So far, he has a recliner he wanted, all seasons of The Office, tools, a couple Simpsons things. That's all for now. We are going shopping again the weekend so he'll be getting more.
    4. What's on your wish list this year?
    A Wii Fit!! And it is sitting in the spare room :( hurry up Christmas morning lol

    1. What is your fav thing about the holiday season? Just, the feeling, the couple weeks leading up to it, and the best moment for me is still Christmas morning with my family :)  I guess I'm still a kid at heart
    2. Who is the most difficult to shop for & why? My dad.  He just kinda likes trinkety things, and we've gotten him SOOO much Riders/Flames/Team Canada things over the years every year we have to try to think of something different.  Found a good one tonight..autographed Red Green Book!! Teehee!!  He'll love it!
     3. What are you getting FI/DH? We actually decided to get a few of our e-pics professionally printed and framed nicely.  We JUST bought a new house (like..Friday!) and are moving in January, and we thought it would be the perfect first things to put up on our walls!
    4. What's on your wish list this year? New purse, nice shirts (I work in autobody so I have toooons of dusty casual shirts, I don't dress up enough to think to buy new clothes once in awhile!)..I don't know.  Most things I want right now have to do with our house or wedding..haha.

    ya I get pretty sad this time of year.  Christmas to me is being with family and friends.  Unfortunately, since I live across the country and only get one day off for Christmas I cannot be part of the christmas get togethers.  Just getting kinda sad now that Christmas is all in my face.  Sorry ladies!  Thanks LIttlin!

    I can relate to this. I moved last Christmas on the 28th to where we're living now :(
    This will be my very first Christmas away from my family! Makes me really sad to think about it. And I can't fly back because the price is nuts and we became official homeowners yesterday! It would be cheaper for me to fly to England rather then to my home town within this province! :(

    1. What is your fav thing about the holiday season? It's hard for me to get into "holiday mode" - I feel like a grinch sometimes until only a few days before Christmas, then I can play the music and be all "in the spirit".  I really like being with my family and eating delicious food - simple, but perfect.
    2. Who is the most difficult to shop for & why? DH's parents for sure, because they have everything and need nothing, and my brother is often tricky as well for the same reason.  He HATES getting gift cards which is my fall back gift!
    3. What are you getting FI/DH? DH is getting a lot of movies and books (I've gone Amazon shopping crazy), as well as a new leather briefcase for work and little things like underwear and socks and goofy other things I find him.
    4. What's on your wish list this year?  I mainly need clothes - work and casual, so I've asked for Lulu gift cards and Banana Republic gift cards for the most part.  I bought a ton of stuff in the spring/summer - like dresses for showers and parties before the wedding, and have been saving a TON of money since then and have bought nothing!  I can't wait to go shopping again!

    Congrats to all the new home owners!  We bought a month ago but only close in February so lots of time until the move!  It's such an exciting time!

    Sorry to smelly - I'm glad that you are seeing your family in January (I saw your other post), but I'm sorry you won't be with them during the holidays.
