#10 is too sad. I want to cry for Little Annie. You must have been so bummed. I agree with #22 :)

ooh I loved this meme! Great answers your battery story was funny, but what a dissapointed- we used to beg too.

Enjoy the holiday season, and I hope you avoid those rude people.

Wow! I think I can relate to almost all your answers as they would be all like mine! I may have to do this meme!
#12, I never liked grinch cartoons or movies, I did like Elf!
#20 I like a big bow on the top and a big "splash"
This was Fun!

Nancy Face said...

BATTERIES? Wow, that really is an icky present, and I've done that to my own kids in the past, haha! :D

I too love Elf and The Grinch...but it must be the original cartoon Grinch! I can't stand the live action one!

It was fun seeing your answers to this one, and I'm so glad you don't like eggnog! I was feeling very alone in my principles, tee hee! ;)

Lauren said...

I am going to make an "I hate Egg Nog" club! I am gonna go work on that award right now!

I loved all your answers!

I agree with you, white lights ONLY on the christmas tree. I converted my mom to that practice haha!
