As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What is your favorite Christmas cookie? I don’t have a specific “Christmas cookie” but I recently tried some cookies with M&M type candies in them…and yum! Those and good old fashioned Chocolate Chip cookies…or Macadamia Nut…..OK, now I sound like a cookieholic, but I really hardly ever eat cookies LOL

2. What’s your favorite holiday movie & why? This is a hard one….I know my husband’s is either “Christmas Story” or “Home Alone” but I’m not really sure what mine is….I liked “The Family Stone”, “4 Christmases”…all those family ones, and one I forgot…”National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”! Another of my hubby’s favs.! I just love family Christmas movies that are funny but sweet 🙂

3. Is there a gift that you bought for your kids that you wish you hadn’t after they opened it? I don’t have any kids but I have bought things for my nieces and nephews…while I haven’t experienced this feeling before, I am sure my sisters have when their kids get an extremely noisy toy LOL

4. What is the messiest room in your house right at this moment? My house is an equal opportunity mess…me and my husband(mostly him) love to spread the wealth of mess throughout the house…the bedroom is a little more crowded at the moment because there are bags of gifts I have to wrap for Christmas in there…

5. What is the furthest you have driven for the holidays? Only about 4 hours from Austin to Lufkin, back before I moved here years and years ago

1. Date Pinwheels
2. Polar Express – love the annimation!
3. No… but the year I gave whistles, toot flutes, or kazoos to all kids, some of the mommies were not happy.
4. My bedroom
5. Oh… does hiring a chaffuer service to drive me up to the airport in Cleveland so I could hop a Christmas Eve flight count? Otherwise, just 45 minutes.
Thanks for letting me play!

Never heard of Date Pinwheels…what do they taste like?
Polar Express is a good movie! 🙂
LOL about the whistles….sounds like something my husband would give out to kids!

1. German lebkuchen – so gorgeous! Like soft gingerbread covered in dark chocolate, sometimes with a bit of apricot jam in the middle 🙂 🙂 🙂
2. One of our Dinosaurs is Missing. Always my favourite as a kid, and still makes me laugh. The dinosaur’s head nodding its way through foggy London on the back of the lorry still makes me smile to think of it. I have it on DVD – with Norwegian subtitles, it doesn’t get any better! Maybe I’ll watch it later… if only I had some lebkuchen to eat as I did so…
3. I don’t have kids. I’ve bought stuff for my cat which I wished I hadn’t bothered with when she completely ignored it. Now I give her shiny balls, made of scrunched up silver foil off chocolates. Free and the best cat toy ever, doesn’t matter if it gets lost or stepped on 🙂
4. Definitely my study.
5. Not all that far. Probably 2-3 hours.

Never heard of German Lebkuchen…but it sounds good! Too bad we live so far apart or I would have to make a visit to try some! 🙂
Cats sound a lot like little babies…babies are always more excited about the boxes and paper than the actual toys!

Paula says:

1. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
All of them! 🙂

2. What’s your favorite holiday movie & why?
Christmas Vacation, Meet Me in St. Louis, White Christmas, A Christmas Story… it’s really hard to choose!

3. Is there a gift that you bought for your kids that you wish you hadn’t after they opened it?
I don’t have kids.

4. What is the messiest room in your house right at this moment?
It’s the same as yours Sharon – and equal opportunity mess! lol

5. What is the furthest you have driven for the holidays?
My friends and I often go to Gatlinberg for New Years, so about thee hours.

OOOO…I forgot White Christmas…that’s a good one too! 🙂 It IS hard to choose, huh?
HAHAHA….Equal Opportunity Mess for all! 🙂
Thanks for joining in! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
