Dishing It....All About Christmas!

One of our favorite family traditions is looking at Christmas lights with The Jones! We started this tradition before we had children and have continued as our families have grown...It's been a challenge each year to get everyone in the same vehicle including car seats for the little ones! Well, this year we both increased our families by one I think the dad's are going to take the oldest 4 kiddos and us mom's are going to chill with the babies back at home! Next year we may just have to rent a limo (ha)!
Is my tree real or fake? Most definitely fake...I'm afraid I couldn't take care of a real one and wouldn't get to enjoy it as long! However, we purchased a pre-lit one a few years back and it has been a pain the past two years as more and more lights go out! We managed to get the whole tree lit again by adding more lights!
Favorite ornaments??? They are ALL favorites. Anytime we go on vacation or travel somewhere we pick up a Christmas ornament! Each ornament tells a story, whether it was a trip we took or ornaments for our children. This year, my favorite ornament is one that my good friend Carmella@Southern Fried Gal made me!
This may sound a bit odd, but my favorite Christmas treat is Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy...Don't knock it until you've had it! It is YUMMY!!! My mom has always made a BIG BREAKFAST on Christmas morning including her infamous Chocolate Gravy and homemade biscuits! If you want to the recipe just email me!
Well, I love to be crafty, however this year I haven't had as much free time...a 3 month old in addition to a 5 and 3 year old can do that to you...I did manage to make this ribbon wreath. It didn't turn out exactly how I imagined and took a lot longer than I anticipated but my little girl LOVED it and it's hanging on her door...So glad it doesn't take much to impress her.
My favorite Holiday movie is ELF! This and Christmas Vacation get funnier each time you watch them.
If Santa brought me an iPad for Christmas I'd be one happy chick! I don't know if I have been "nice" enough for one but I sure hope so!
