At home with the family.

4. What is your favorite Christmas song?
The Christmas Shoes, if you haven't heard it yet, please do.  It has such a great meaning and will bring you tears.  Click here to watch it on YouTube.  I have to listen to this song every year and cry every time.

Portuguese Christmas fruit cake, delicious.

To be honest? Giving, I totally go overboard giving presents to my kids, husband and parents and I love it and I love to over do it a little bit year after year.

11. What is the best Christmas gift you've ever received?
2 years ago one of my nephews came and spend Christmas with us and this year I have another one of them here, that's the best gifts ever, family.

12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
A lodge with a huge fireplace, yeah, simple and cozy.

13.  Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
Pro-present wrapper baby, that's been my thing and I'm proud. 

14.  Most memorable Holiday moment?
The kids playing with all the old wrapping paper, it's priceless and every year I take tons of pictures of them.

15.  What made you realize the truth about Santa?
Other kids, they were mean.  I was in denial for a while but I did have to grow up...

16.  Do you make New Years resolutions?  Do you stick to them?
Very, very rarely and sometimes I stick to them and other times I don't. 

17.  What makes the holidays special for you?
Family and friends.

This was a nice tag, made me think of the importance of Christmas.
