Random Christmas Hoopla

Leia tagged me - so here goes! Here are the rules:
1. List 12 random things about yourself that have to do with Christmas
2. Please refer to it as a 'hoopla'
3. You have to specifically tag people when you're done

1. I absolutely love decorating the Christmas tree and looking at all the ornaments I've collected in the 31 years of my life!
2. I aboslutely HATE the "Christmas" song called The Christmas Shoes. Someone please tell me WHY that song should put ANYONE in the Christmas mood?!?! Oh- and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause (By the Jackson Five) and I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas are right there behind it - AWFUL!
3. Having kids has put the magic back into Christmas...and gives me an excuse to watch my favorite Christmas movies like Rudolph, Nestor and The Small One!
4. I could care less if I have any gifts to open on Christmas Day - watching the girls open their gifts is all the "present" I need!
5. I serve powdered donuts & Sister Schubert sausage rolls for Christmas morning breakfast every year!
6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE waking up in my OWN house on Christmas morning!
7. I bake entirely too many goodies every year!
8. I hate sending Christmas cards and I just may not do it this year. Just too much trouble!
9. I love driving around with the girls looking at Christmas lights (we did this last night, in fact!).
10. I wish more people would remember WHY we have Christmas in the first place. The commercialism drives me crazy. On the radio Saturday, I heard a promo that said "all Christmas Music, All the Time, to get you in the holiday shopping spirt!" Why does it have to the HOLIDAY SHOPPING SPIRIT? Why can't it be just plain old CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!?! The Christmas season isn't about shopping...err......
11. I love going to Church this time of year. We go all year...but there is just something about the Christmas season in your Church.....and singing traditional Christmas it!
12. I'm SO excited about Christmas morning this year I could bust! I think both girls are going to have a great day!

I'm tagging:
Emily, cousin Katie in Oregon (or Colorado!) and Sarah in Texas!
