1. Did you get a white Christmas where you live?-- nope.

2. What was your/your children's/grandchildren's favorite gift? -- The Boy - tickets to an OKC Thunder game; The Girl - footie pajamas; Me - a high-heeled shoe wine holder; Dh - dunno. He hasn't said.

3. When do you take your Christmas decorations down? -- probably sometime before we go back to work (1/2)

1. Did you get a white Christmas where you live?  It snowed lightly on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, but not on Christmas-- and the snow had melted mostly by Christmas day.  My parents, who live on top of a mountain, had several inches though.

2. What was your/your children's/grandchildren's favorite gift?  I got lots of lovely presents.  A serger from DH, and fabric from my mom and MIL.  I've already turned the jelly roll from my mom into a quilt top.  DD loves her pogo stick,  and DS loves his 3DS games.

3. When do you take your Christmas decorations down? I like to take them down on New Year's Eve.  It makes New Year's Day feel like a fresh start.

No, a little dusting to what was already there.  My favorite gift was being with my family like always, I know incredibly sappy, Lol.  I think my kids liked what they got, DD2 is a fan of Austin Mahone so she got one of his tshirts, DS loved his minecraft hoodie and DD1 liked a lot her collection of camo stuff.  Technically the epiphany but we take them down New Years day and before we all get back into the grind of returning to school, to work etc.

1. Did you get a white Christmas where you live?   Yes, just an inch or so, enough to make everything pretty, but not too deep and not too cold.  It will be 40(F) by Saturday, so most of it will vanish.

2. What was your/your children's/grandchildren's favorite gift?  Mine was a tie between the MiTutto immersion blender, and the Kindle Fire HD.  DD#1's favorite was a tie between her Surface, and a Keurig.  DD#2's was a tie between her new Rachel Ray pots & pans, a Nook HD, and a pair of running shoes--she's a serious runnerGrandd is 2.  EVERYTHING was her favorite, for 5 minutes.  But she kept returning to the Duplo blocks and worktable.

3. When do you take your Christmas decorations down?  After 12th night.

1. Did you get a white Christmas where you live? -- No, thank God.  I'm sick of winter weather and most especially snow.

2. What was your/your children's/grandchildren's favorite gift? --  I have no idea, although I think he really enjoyed the DS Santa brought him.  John and DIL's big gift this year was off their baby registry, but I think they were very pleased.

3. When do you take your Christmas decorations down? -- when I feel like it. For the outside stuff, I turn the timers off them on Jan 1, but wait for a mild day to officially take them down.  The inside stuff (aside from the window lights because they are part of the outside dislay) may come down this weekend.

2.  I don't know, they seemed to enjoy everything.

1. No, although everything is encased in ice, which makes it exotic and kind of pretty when the light hits it right. 2. The older one seems inordinately please by a single-serving smoothie maker that I got him, and the younger one got some special controller for a game system from my sister that seems to be a big hit. 3. Always before Lent.
