Five Question Friday #5QF @5crookedhalos

It's that time of the week again... where you can peek into my brain based on the questions asked at:

1. What's the best Christmas present you've ever received?

Honestly, a mall gc!  I love to shop and shopping guilt free is the best!

2. Worst/Funniest White Elephant gift ever received?

For years, there was a Carmen Miranda shower head making the rounds as a gag gift on our street... I never actually received it myself, but it was fun to watch as every holiday and special event it would pop up like a bad re-gifted penny... wonder what finally happened to that thing...

3. Is your Christmas tree plain and simple (white lights and matching ornaments) or is it wild and crazy (colored lights with lots of ornaments collected over the years)?

Wild and crazy - I have an artificial tree with fiber optic lights that can change patterns and the kids love it!  I've got ornaments from all over the world, some old, some new, lots homemade - it's an anything goes tree!

4. "How" do you iron your clothes? The old fashioned iron/ironing board way, the shower, back in the dryer, etc.

I don't buy anything that needs to be ironed... it's against my religion ... I unearthed my iron to do a craft project and I think it's the first time it was used in over 3 years...

5. How much baking do you do for Christmas and what are your "must make" items? (I'm looking for recipes here, peeps...)

I do cookie baking - and you are welcome to check out my favorite cookie recipes linky as part of my 25 days of cookies event - here's yesterday's post ... new cookies every morning!
