  4. 1. I had a hard time with a Christmas list this year. I need a couple of big things (car, living room furniture), but those may be too big for Santa’s sleigh.
    2. We did adopt-a-child at work. Nothing else planned.
    3. No holiday parties. Going to a birthday party this weekend though.
    4. Thanksgiving is usually our family’s big holiday. Christmas is breakfast with the parents and lots of lounging at home. Can’t wait!
    5. Nothing as of yet.
    6. I do. We don’t always do gifts, but I love me some 7 pound, 6 oz baby Jesus.
    7. You know, I have not given NYE much thought. Last year, my people came to my house. Not sure what’s in the cards for this year.
    8. I’m ready to say good riddance to 2012. It hasn’t been all bad, but just enough that I’m ready to kick this year to the curb. They say challenging times grow you, but damn! Here’s to an awesome beyond belief 2013!

  5. What’s on your Christmas present wish list? If you have kids, what do they want?
    A Tablet, some furniture, new pots/pans, new tv.

    not really

    not yet still deciding if I will attend

    nothing special

    I actually don’t but a few relatives usually give me something

    My couch, some sparkling cider and watching the ball drop
    Are you ready for 2013??
    Yes, I’m ready to move forward in my new city. This year was kinda rough.

  6. I don’t have a present wish list. Buddha wants toys, the Wii U and 3D whatever the heck version they’re on. His birthday is the 20th so I buy gifts for his birthday. For his seventh year of life, he’s getting a tablet.

    I haven’t done anything charitable for Christmas. I usually do Thanksgiving. We fed 300 families for Thanksgiving.

    My job’s holiday party is next Saturday. I haven’t been to any others.

    I will be recovering from surgery on Christmas (it’s scheduled for the 24th). I will be off from work until after the new year. No travels this year.

    Christmas dinner menu is whatever Mister’s grandmother is cooking.

    I don’t celebrate Christmas. My MIL thinks I’m strange. I don’t buy gifts. Buddha puts up a tree if he wants to. His birthday is 12/20 so I celebrate his birthday and let everyone else do Christmas b/c they ALWAYS overlook his birthday.

    No plans for NYE….yet. Not sure what we will do. I’m over paying an arm & a leg to go out. I’d like to do something different.

    Ready? Ready? Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit, I was born ready for 2013! Lol. (you gotta read that in the voice of Jack Jenkins, the boxer from Harlem Nights)

  7. I like answering your questions (btw is it really round 9?) – here goes:
    What’s on your Christmas present wish list? Nothing really, but peace in all family relationships. If you have kids, what do they want? we dont make a big deal about gifts though my husband loooooves to go out on Christmas eve and last minute shop.
    Are you doing anything charitable for the holiday season? Not really
    Been to any holiday parties? Not recently may attend my husband’s own. How were they?
    What are your plans for Christmas? Home, baking, eating, hanging out with friends and family. Are you traveling anywhere? Not this year
    What’s on your Christmas dinner menu? Not sure yet, but dessert will definitely include black cake and sorrel
    Do you even celebrate Christmas? Always
    What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? I like going to watch night service but here in California that’s hard to find, so we’ll be home.
    Are you ready for 2013?? As ready as I’ll ever be

    2. I might help with the Christmas food baskets at the church if I can get off work.

    – I’m leaning toward Chinese.
    – Absolutely.
    – Haven’t thought that far ahead yet.
    – After I get my week of R&R, I’ll be ready for anything!!

  10. I want some Chuck Taylors. Anything else is gravy. LG wants a Nintendo 3DXL.
    I went 1/2 on an Angel Tree kid with a girl from church.
    Nope, none on the agenda this year.
    We’ll be home. May head over to AR or TX for a day or two – probably won’t.
    Whatever someone else cooks – my oven is dead so we’re at the mercy of others.
    I do.
    I’ll be at the house with the kiddo. Pretty sure I’ll be sleep when the new year rolls in.
    Sure I am.

  11. My list includes: a red baking set, nice watch, pair of boots, coat and a gift card to my nail shop. Tyler – 3 video games and an itunes gift card. He’s going to be shocked at all the extras that he didnt’ ask for.

    My office lunch is tomorrow. I’m also having a holiday party next Saturday.

    I’m looking forward to 2013. I turn 35 and have lots to celebrate and look forward to!

    *It depends on what the family is doing during the week I’m home.
    *My first holiday party is Saturday.
    *JD and I are visiting my parents for Christmas, so yes, we’re traveling. They are only a few hours a way, so we’re driving. I’m thinking of staying for a while.
    *Mom has called me about the menu for dinner, but I’ve been so busy this week, I haven’t had any input.
