All right, I'm game.

1. Favorite Christmas gift? Probably the LOST DVD set you got me. Or my new Crocs (thanks, Nana!)

2. Steak

3. I'm keeping the same resolution I made last year. And I'm also committing to writing more.

4. You tell me. No, I think it's lasagna.

5. N.T. Wright's "Surprised By Hope" or Cormac McCarthy's "The Road". Right now I'm reading Rob Bell's "Jesus Wants to Save Christians" and it's awesome.

6. Nope, thanks to you!

8. Nothing. It was awesome.

1. Either Season 1 of Chuck or my subscription to Real Simple magazine.

2. Roast Pork, mashed potatoes, yummy rolls, green beans, and corn. And a plethora of desserts followed. (My annual favorite Christmas food is part of Christmas Eve's festivities - sausage pinwheels. yum.)

3. Live. Live like any day could be my last- seize it for His Kingdom.

4. I ate a wrap & tomato soup.

5. Hmm... The Shack by William P. Young or Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers (I was very opposed to reading this one for some reason; I guess I thought it would be cheesy. It was amazing.) I am currently reading The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs

6. Nope; I took the tree down today.

7. For me, Christmas celebrations began at the beginning of December. I am counting 10 different occasions... wow....

8. New Years Eve... well, I enjoyed a quiet night at the apt... in a tent made of bedsheets and blankets.

9. Grape!

Elyse - Are you studying to be a special education teacher? If so, I had no idea.

Jenna - I've heard great things about Redeeming Love. Every time I go to the library to check it out, it is not there. Maybe I'll catch it sometime soon.

1. That one is very hard. I got so much this Christmas, but my absolute favorite was my Blog in print. I love it! I also loved the gc to Lowe's to purchase our new ceiling fan and my new Vera Bradley wallet. (I know, I'm cheating!)

2. Steak, Caesar Salad, Baked Potato, and Rolls

3. Kind of! I am hoping to exercise some every day. Not eat anything past 7:00 pm. Finish the baby books and documenting the photo albums. And to read more.

4. Lasagna and French Bread

5. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks or Sam's Letters to Jennifer by James Patterson. I had read this one before (Sam's Letters), but reread it on the cruise.

6. No. I took it down this past Tuesday. For some unknown reason, I decided to do it while Jason was at work. He put it all in the attic later on that evening when he got home from work.

7. So far, three. We still have two more celebrations.

8. Jason and I watched the new Batman movie.

9. Strawberry

The uniqueness about this post I liked is about the simplicity and the way it is written in depth on subject. Regards, Donatos Coupons
