Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

Q is for Questions...

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?

I just spent $30.00 on half price bags at the party store so bags all the way. There are some beautiful ones out there with frills, details, sparkly stuff, etc. All you need is tissue paper. No scissors, no tape and they usually include a gift tag.
2. Real tree or artificial?
Artificial due to living in the desert.

3. When do you put up the tree?
Thanksgiving afternoon.
4. When do you take the tree down?
Usually New Year's Day

5. Do you like eggnog?

6. Favorite gift received as a child?
tough one... #1 Suzie Homemaker Grill but a close 2nd would be my Dawn's Fashion Show.
(My best present ever - my Flying Nun doll was a birthday present.)

Everyone. I agonize over every gift - I want it to be perfect for them.
