1. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to Holiday shopping? Yes. There are always a few things that I need to grab at the last minute. But it doesn't bother me a bit.

2. Do you still need to wrap gifts? Yes.

3. Yummy homemade baked goods, do you or no? I eat them! I usually get some as gifts, but occasionally make something.

4. Favorite holiday family tradition? We always go to the movies on Christmas Day.

5. Do you know a Grinch? Fortunately, no. Well, I'm sure someone I know isn't really in the holiday spirit, but they're hiding it well.

1. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to Holiday shopping? No I'm a planner. DH is procrastinates and we end up getting his parents gifts last minute unless I come up with stellar ideas on my own.

2. Do you still need to wrap gifts? Yes!

3. Yummy homemade baked goods, do you or no? Yes, I do a few select things. My mom and sister are huuuge bakers, so I make things like snickerdoodles and peppermint bark that they don't.

4. Favorite holiday family tradition? There are so many, but our Italian Christmas Eve dinner is tops. It is really special and I'm so thankful that we are still able to carry this tradition on, especially after my dad passed.

5. Do you know a Grinch? I'm sure I probably do (boss perhaps?) but I don't him influence my spirit.

1. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to Holiday shopping? No!! We don't have any big stored to shop in so we have to drive an hour out of town to get to the nearest city. We were done Christmas shopping by the middle of November.

2. Do you still need to wrap gifts? Only the ones from Santa! I've been going to sleep at the same time as my daughter so I haven't been able to wrap without being caught.....

3. Yummy homemade baked goods, do you or no? Nope. But this year I went to a cookie party and came home with 12 dozen different kinds of goodies. Unfortunately I'm completely anti-sweets this pregnancy but hopefully guests like them!

4. Favorite holiday family tradition? We have family Christmas on December 25, then a second Christmas on December 26 with all the extended family. It started because I was born on Christmas so it was my birthday party with the family. Now its just turned into this awesome day where everybody gets together so theres usually 30-40 people.

5. Do you know a Grinch?

My sister. Ahahaha

1. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to Holiday shopping?

I always start early but always leave 1 or 2 things to the very end to get

2. Do you still need to wrap gifts? The ones that are bought, are wrapped.

3. Yummy homemade baked goods, do you or no? Yesssss. Must. This year I made homemade truffles, cream cheese spritz cookies, sugar cookies, thumbprint jam cookies, and I am making rugelach cookies today. I still have herbed dinner rolls to pop out to sometime over the weekend

4. Favorite holiday family tradition? These past few years, nothing has been consistent. We are a military family and we usually travel but, this is my husband's first Christmas with my daughter so we refused to go anywhere. My in-laws including my 2 bro-in-laws are coming for the holiday and staying a few days.

5. Do you know a Grinch? No one comes to mind, thankfully.

1. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to Holiday shopping? No, I like to get it done by Black Friday but my family never has their "lists" ready by then so I miss a lot of good deals!

2. Do you still need to wrap gifts? Nope! DONE! Did a few a day at night after DD went to bed because her "helping" me was taking twice as long

3. Yummy homemade baked goods, do you or no? No, but I make homemade hand/feet scrubs

4. Favorite holiday family tradition? My husband's family opens gifts on Christmas Eve and all have a party that night. Someone always dresses up as Santa and dances around like an idiot to old school Mexican music and hands out goodies to the kiddos

5. Do you know a Grinch? Not this year, most everyone is in the Christmas spirit! Thank Goodness!

1. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to Holiday shopping?
NOPE! I started extra early this year. Had a shipping company mess up a holiday delivery last year (it got fixed, but I was still mad). I probably take a good week and devote it to holiday shopping.

2. Do you still need to wrap gifts?
Nope! I was hiding a few presents and finally wrapped them this past week.

3. Yummy homemade baked goods, do you or no?
I wish. I thought about it...but no. Not this year. One year, I will.

4. Favorite holiday family tradition?
Eating. Short, sweet, to the point. Actually, we would always have posole on Christmas morning. So yummy. The fact that it was on Christmas made it even more delicious. So yeah...eating.

5. Do you know a Grinch?
I know OF one. Never actually met her. But from what I've heard...total grinch. I think I'll stay far far FAR away from that. I love Christmas too much.
