I Could Have Been June Cleaver...

1. What's on the top of your holiday wish list and why?!

A new sewing machine--mine quit on me in the middle of a million projects and I need to sew!

2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?

Anything that the Rev has given me...hey, he is buying the sewing machine so I've got to stay in good...

3. If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up?

A Home Economist--just bake and craft and decorate and can and sew and teach others how to do it. Like June Cleaver, only getting paid!

4. When do you put up your tree?

Oh, the tree...last year's tree and the length of time that it took to put it up and the number of times it fell over almost led to a holiday divorce for the Rev and I. This year, we went ahead and invested in a nice fake tree to keep the peace. I thought it would be easier to decorate, but I have finally realized that tree decorating is not for linear, symmetrical people. It is so hard! So, to answer the question, I start putting it up after Thanksgiving, but it is usually a 2 week process to get it finished. (In honor of this weekend's big SEC Championship game, I am showing you a pic of the Gamecocks tree that we put up in the Rev's office each Christmas--at least it is up! And, GO GAMECOCKS!!)

5. What is your favorite Holiday?

I like them all--they all have their own unique you-can-only-get-it-this-time-of-year candy...but Christmas is probably my favorite.

Hi, Stacie-stopping by from 5QF. I love your answers, especially about the home economist and the "Christmas divorce" over the tree bit. The Price family are also big Gamecocks fans.
Happy Holidays. My tree isn't up yet either...sheer laziness on my part!
