Christmas Meme...

I saw this fun Christmas Meme over at Charree's blog, Held in His Hand. Let's play!!

~Christmas Faves~


Fresh tree or fake tree?
Definitely FRESH!! I love the smell of a fresh Christmas tree!!


Ornament?
Definitely this one. Mr. U and I got married December 12, 1998 (Yep! We just celebrate our 10th anniversary!!!) and we received MANY Christmas type gifts. This ornament, though, was (and still is!) my favorite!! Each Christmas as we decorate our tree, we always hang this last AND we hang it together!!!



Christmas song?
My favorite Christmas hymn is "What Child is This?" My favorite Christmas non-hymn song is "Joseph's Song" by Michael Card.


Tradition?
Each year when we decorate our Christmas tree, we eat Cranberry Chicken. We also watch "The Nativity Story" and drink eggnog. Yum!!!!!


Favorite gift as a child?
Well, I don't remember actually receiving him (I was too young) but I DO know that I got my Teddy for Christmas- my first Christmas to be exact!! I still have my dear Teddy, so he's definitely my favorite Christmas gift!!!


Christmas meal?
Well, it's a toss up between Cranberry Chicken and the Christmas Day meal at my parents' house.


Cookie?
Cookie? As in SINGULAR?? I have to choose ONE????? YIKES!!! Okay... wait... this is my blog, so I can choose more than one, right???? I choose Gingerbread Men, Extra Spicy Gingersnaps and Cranberry Orange Cookies. OH MY!!!


Place to be?
With my family. :)


Memory?
Playing games with my family on Christmas Day after all the gifts were opened and all the food was eaten.


Christmas movie?
The Nativity Story and It's a Wonderful Life.

I just wanted to say hello. I saw your comment on My Sweet Simple Life and thought I would make your acquaintance.

Not many people know of Joseph's Song. It's one of my favorites too, as is another one from Joseph's viewpoint, "It Wasn't His Child." Joseph often gets lost in the Christmas story, but he is just as much a part of it as Mary was.

Enjoy every moment with your precious little ones. Such darlings!

By the way, happy anniversary. Time sure flies, doesn't it? In February, my husband and I will celebrate 23 years of marriage!! I can hardly believe it's been that long since we said our "I do's".

Blessings,
Patti

I love your ornament. We received a set of Maine-theme ornaments for a wedding gift.
We still have them. One of my favorites is the lobster claw.
