  1. Hi Bran!

    I like that we have some of the same answers to these questions πŸ˜‰

    Thought of Christmas “jams” when I read #17 and #21 πŸ™‚

  2. 19. Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeer?

    Sleepy, bashful, grumpy, and peewee?

  3. I missed you by two hours?!?!?! DANG!

  4. Go see mine!

    btw, THEMES rock!

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. WOW.. you know all the reindeer??
    I get stuck on Rudolph!

    Miss you Bran!!!!

    Love you!!

  6. Tracie! You were lost in spam! Not good! I saved you though. πŸ˜‰

    I knew you’d think of “jams” while reading this. πŸ˜†

  7. ive never been able to name the reindeer.

    you take your tree down soon! “wrap it up kids! its over. NEXT!”


  8. Tam, last year, I took it down CHRISTMAS NIGHT! 😯 Last year was an insane Christmas for us though so I was ready for some normalcy. We had the girls, things were stressful, I was ready for the clutter to be gone.

    This year I might wait longer since we actually have ROOM for the tree. πŸ˜‰

  9. also, I can name the reindeer if I’m not thinking about it….like when I’m singing the song. But the minute I start thinking too hard about it I can’t do it. It’s the pressure! πŸ˜†

  10. Oh my gosh, there’s a commercial out right now where the husband gives his wife a toaster, and he’s proudly pointing out that you can make it light or dark ~ I can’t believe Jake actually did that!!!! 😯

  11. hahaha! I think I’ve seen that one! SO FUNNY!

    And yes, he got me a TOASTER. The story behind the toaster….

    I kept complaining that our toaster wasn’t big enough for us to both eat toast at the same time b/c it was only a two slice toaster. I wanted a four slice so we could eat breakfast at the same time and both have HOT toast. I know, kinda silly, but these things are important. πŸ˜†
    Anyway, apparently he was paying TOO MUCH attention and thought I wanted one for CHRISTMAS. That Christmas I opened up a big white toaster and I laughed and said “seriously?” Unfortunately, he was TOTALLY serious and TOTALLY proud of himself. πŸ˜† I never let him forget about the year he got me a toaster! hahahaha!!!

  12. I wondered if I got caught in spam, thanks for saving me friend!
    It was so exciting when I came to your page and saw CHRISTMAS decor. Yay!!!
    I was trying to sing the reindeer names just now.
    Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen but do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?
    That was all in my head and I have no clue if any is right! LOL I tried!

  13. it is! it is! THat’s the only way I can say them too is if I sing the song without too much thought. hahahahaha!!!!

  14. Dancer and Vixen – DARN!- they’re the two i never remember!

    Love the Christmas blog look πŸ™‚

    are you going to take it down before New Year’s??

    ♥ u
