5. Do you like eggnog?  Mmmmmmmmmmmm... YES!  Not the alcoholic kind, though. Exactly the same for us!  But the darn eggnog IS fattening!
 
6. Favorite gift received as a child?  My doll that said Momma is #1 and then my "Toni" doll which we gave home perms too.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?  I am always scared I am going to break it. I gave my Mom's really good one to Tim, as he likes them more than me.  I have a couple and they are smaller.  I don't especially like putting it up or taking it down, but I do love looking at it!
