Wedensay hodgepodge

1.  Share your traditions surrounding the Christmas stocking.

The Christmas stockings are the last to open and the gifts are very practical.

2.  How many hours of sleep do you average at night?  Is it enough?
Usually I average around 5 and 1/2 hours of sleep each night but here lately it has been a lot less.  I am not doing anything differently just having trouble falling asleep.  I am blaming this on -getting older.

3.  If you had to give up one thing for the remainder of this year what would it be?
Have to give up or want to give up?  If I had to give up something, I have no earthly idea what it would be.  If I want to give up something it would be my nicorette gum-I have quit smoking (over a year now) but am addicted to the gum.

4.  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (or Wills and Kate as I like to call them) have announced they're expecting a baby. Do you follow news of the Royals? 
Definitely yes and would love to go to London.

5.  For me,  the sound of childhood is__________________.
Something today's children don't hear.  I remember laughing and playing outside-even when the weather turned cooler-so many fun games.  Today, children go home and play on the computer, watch tv or play video games.

6.  Fruit cake-yay or boo? What's your favorite dessert made with fruit?
Not a fan of fruit cake.  Favorite dessert made with fruit-apple dumplings.

7. What is one thing you want to accomplish before 2012 comes to an end?

Haven't really thought about this.  Gosh where has the year gone?

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Eleven more days until Christmas break!


  1. Oh, now you got me droolin'!!! Apple dumplings. Warm from the oven with gooey cinnamon syrup. Oh be still my heart. As with your answer to the sound of got that right!!

  2. Practical gifts for stockings are the best gifts!

    1. Hubby quit smoking years ago using the Nicorette gum. Eventually he transitioned in to Cinnamon gum because he still got the heat. Congratulations on not smoking!

  3. It is sad that so many kids don't know how to play outside anymore. I love going to the mountains and seeing kids playing in the river...not an electronic game in sight!

  4. I loved Princess Diana and love following her children. London was awesome in 2011 and I would love to try living there for a few months. I hope you can go someday. It's a treat. I said childrens laughter, it's the best. Enjoy your Christmas break :)

  5. Good for you quitting smoking! Our stockings are a mixture of fun and practical : )

  6. I would love to go to London, as well.
