Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

haha! the re-gifter makes me chuckle! (no, it's not me!)I love mass on Christmas Eve, too, it's full of singing and family and just pure loveliness. Merry Christmas! I love the holidays!

Mikala said...

That's a great TT!

I loved it.

I’m up!

KaY said...

Awww ... what a wonderful list!

I'm up as well.

Kelli said...

Great list...I can't wait to be able to sit down and watch some of the Christmas movies! Happy TT!

Rashenbo said...

Yup, some great Christmas memories... I know family members that regift too! I don't remember my first Christmas with my husband though... I remember our first Christmas together. I had just turned 18 and he bought me a horrid sweater! :)

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

We do Christmas stockings too. I am going to have filling one for my husband this year. :-)

I think there's a re-gifter in every family. Did your re-gifter ever accidentally give a gift back to the original giver? It's always interesting when that happens for those of us watching from the sidelines.

Family Ties board game - wow that is classic!! :)

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I'm howling about the regifter -- how'd you discover that (or shouldn't I ask?).

Happy TT!

Darla said...

What great memories! I love the idea for Christmas dinner. We don't have a standard tradition, because everyone has other things on their mind, but this might put a different spin on things.

Thanks for the reminder about Christmas movies. We need to get ours out of the attic soon!

Beth said...

Great TT!! Love it!!

Sparky Duck said...

I love the light tours, by hayride would be even cooler

LunaStone said...

Haaaa... I have a #4 too! LOL

Barbara said...

I love all these Christmas memory TT's today.

Danielle said...

Those are great memories!

The Christmas hayride sounds wonderful!

This is our first Christmas in our "real" house. I want it to be perfect...but we're missing a gas log still! (We're renting & the previous renters made off with the log) We at least have the real tree!

Merry Christmas!

Chickadee said...

Family Ties boardgame??? I didn't know that there was ever a FT game..I LOVED that show.

A hayride through a neighborhood looking at lights sounds like fun!

My 13 are up.

lisa-marie said...

That is a fantastic TT list!

Amy said...

A wonderful walk down memory lane!

Thanks for visiting my T13.

tiggerprr said...

I can't believe that people really regift! That's crazy!

...my 2 cents said...

A great list! Sounds like you have alot of wonderful Christmas memories and traditions.

Thanks for stopping by earlier! Have a great weekend!

KAREN said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Also I must admit I re gift once in a while. Like the grab gift from my bf dads office is being re gifted to my Bf office party

ChupieandJ'smama said...

I love your list and all of your wonderful Christmas memories! Family Ties board game...that's a blast from the past:) Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Lisa said...

What a cool idea - the "everyone's favorite food" dinner! I think I may throw that one out to my family this year! (Has to be other than christmas though. We have our Italian traditions from which we cannot deviate! heh)

Thanks for visiting Snarkypants. Have a good week!

the anonymous teacher said...

I love #7! I still get a stocking every year. This year the mom is even making one for boyfriend head. He's never had a stocking before, so it should be a good time

The Little Woman said...

Amy - thanks for stopping by!

This is a great TT. Sometimes I regift...but it is because I have something that is still in the box that I know someone else really wants.

Mert said...

Great list! I am guilty of regifting, but never used items, always new, never tacky, and that I never used with the tags still on. :O)

Terri said...

What a great list, Amy. So many wonderful memories. And this year, I'm sure you'll have more.
Happy Holidays to you.
And thanks for stopping by.

Justin said...

Christmas movies do rock! I watched Love Actually last night. I'm going to have to pick out another one to watch.

Norma said...

I've been known to regift--and have also been the recepient. But rarely. Usually the family drawing for names.

Great list.

My TT is up--click on the scroll to find it.

Number 10 sounds wonderful! One year all of our in-town extended family was out of town for Christmas so we made a smaller (and delicious!) meal and stayed in our pj's all day. It was one of the best Christmas dinners ever.
