Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Christmas Spirit

To get us into the Christmas Spirit, here's a little Christmas Survey. Respond if you want or repost at will...

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper. Those presents are so much more fun to open!
2. Real tree or Artificial? well...I own 2 artificial trees. That doesn't necessarily mean that I PREFER them though.
3. When do you put up the tree? It's all I can do to wait until Thanksgiving is over. They are up now along with the inside and outside decorations!
4. When do you take the tree down? Around New Year's. It makes me sad to take it down. But I do get to leave up my 1 Frosty the Snowman nightlight in the kitchen YEAR ROUND!!
5. Do you like eggnog? LOVE IT! Had some while we decked the halls this weekend!
6. Favorite gift received as a child? The slot car race track. Me and Dad raced the rest of Christmas Day!
7. Hardest person to buy for? Dad
8. Easiest person to buy for? Mom and Dean
9. Do you have a nativity scene? no, but I really need/want one.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I thought I was going save time and just do the email thing, but I love Christmas cards too much to give it up though! And PICTURE cards at that. I have to send out picture cards this year of the baby bump, and then next year it will be because I have to send out baby’s 1st Christmas…even though Dean reminds me that I buy Christmas cards on sale every year and never send them. DUH – because everyone loves picture cards!
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Don’t recall…
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Miracle on 34th Street, Christmas Story, It's a Wonderful Life, Elf. I LOVE CHRISTMAS MOVIES.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I started last year, but somehow I’m still not done? But I only have a few left.
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Not yet, but I think I am this year. Only because I haven’t even opened it yet and I’ve had it for a year!
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? puppy chow, sausage balls, cookies, candy. I LOVE Christmas food!
16. Lights on the tree? Of Course!
17. Favorite Christmas song? Silver Bells, White Christmas, Let It Snow. I HEART all Christmas music. The blog’s music has been updated too!
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay at home.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? You know it!
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? I have a star this year. Dean said the snowman head was a little too creepy.
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? One on Eve, the rest on Morning.
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? When people don't call it CHRISTmas.
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? No particular one. We try to buy an ornament everywhere we travel to, then I write the year on the back of them. Then when we decorate the tree, we get to reminisce over each ornament. This year we have so many “special” ornaments, we didn’t have to use the balls to fill in the space!
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? All the leftovers!
25. What do you want for Christmas this year? A digital photo frame and lots of cake stuff!

3 nice things to say...:

Puppy Chow is AWESOME!!
1/2 c. butter
1 c. peanut butter
12 oz. pkg. chocolate chips
12.5 oz. pkg. Crispix cereal
Powdered sugar, at least 3 c.

Melt butter, peanut butter and chips together just until smooth. Put cereal in large bowl and pour melted mixture over it. Stir gently to coat all pieces - it will clump together.
Put at least three cups powdered sugar in large paper bag. Add cereal mixture. Roll top of bag closed and start shaking. Add more powdered sugar until each piece is coated - will look just like puppy chow. Keeps well in a sealed container.
