Do you make any holiday keepsakes with your kids (if you have others)? If this is your first LO, will you start a family tradition with him/her? No traditions. But we do make ornaments of some kind every year. This year we did reindeer handprints.

Favorite holiday treat? Hmmmm I'd say buckeyes!

Skiing, sledding, ice skating? Any you've done and like? No skiing, but everything else, YES! When I was preggo with DS2 we went sledding and I swore I was going to laugh the baby out. Smile My big behind kept falling off the sled!

Do you remember any holiday traditions from your own childhood? When we got older, we would open one gift on Christmas Eve. Also, baking cookies!

Do you put Christmas/holiday lights up around your house? How extreme do you go? Usually some on the porch, but not this year--too much work for me...so I decided to simplify and just do the tree...er, the kids and DH did the tree while I sat and watched. Smile

What's on the dinner menu for the holidays at your house? Turkey and all the trimmings on Christmas Eve. I LOVE that tradition! Then we eat leftovers on Christmas day.

Do you make any holiday keepsakes with your kids (if you have others)? If this is your first LO, will you start a family tradition with him/her? We don't, but we should...

Favorite holiday treat? My homemade turtles...but, sadly, I am not making them this year.

Skiing, sledding, ice skating? Any you've done and like? Done all three, like all three, but haven't done much of anything the past few years...maybe when the kids are a bit older?

Do you remember any holiday traditions from your own childhood? Big family Christmas parties were my favorite! And visiting everyone on Christmas day.

Do you play Christmas carols/holiday themed music in your house? What's your favorite song? Yes, when the kids are not napping...and I remember to turn it on. My favorite is Silent Night.

Have you ever been caroling before? Yes, many times!

Egg nog or hot chocolate? Hot chocolate...my tastes are changing...I used to really enjoy egg nog, but not so much anymore.

Snow! Love it or HATE it? I like it...off the roads. Smile

Do you put Christmas/holiday lights up around your house? How extreme do you go? We have meant to, but we haven't got around to it. We just want to do some icicle lights in our main downstairs windows and on our porch.

What's on the dinner menu for the holidays at your house? We'll be eating wherever we end up (still figuring that out!). Probably a ham and typical sides. At our house, it'd likely be something easy or take out as we'll have such a wee one wearing us out. Biggrin

Do you make any holiday keepsakes with your kids (if you have others)? If this is your first LO, will you start a family tradition with him/her? We haven't yet, but I have toyed with the idea of making some salt dough ornaments or a painting project with DD this year.

Favorite holiday treat? Zeppole

Skiing, sledding, ice skating? Any you've done and like?
Done it all, snowboarding is my favorite hands down. I love it!

Do you remember any holiday traditions from your own childhood? Sure! Opening PJs on Christmas Eve, going to Christmas services and visiting family.

Do you play Christmas carols/holiday themed music in your house? What's your favorite song? Sometimes I do with DD as she is really getting into it. I don't have a particular favorite.

Have you ever been caroling before?
As a kid yes.
Egg nog or hot chocolate? Hot Chocolate. I don't dislike Egg Nog, but it's not what I reach for.

Snow! Love it or HATE it? Love it as long as we aren't dealing with others on the road who don't know how to drive in it or I don't have to go anywhere. Wink
