Today I thought I would join Patrice for Chats on the Farmhouse Porch. Each week Patrice posts some get-to-know-each-other questions.
- Where is your favorite place to think, reflect, or pray?
2. Did you believe in Santa as a kid?
YES. Even though I was terrified to sit on his knee, I did believe. You know those pictures you see with the little kids screaming in fear on Santa's lap - - that was me. LOL I still remember my cousin Michael telling me he wasn't real. I ran to my grandfather crying and sobbing, begging him to tell me that Michael was lying. Grandpa was NOT impressed with him. When Michael and his wife had their first child, I held her in the hospital and told her in a few years I was going to tell her what her Daddy told me. Michael roared laughing and told his wife from now on to refer to me as "Crazy Aunt Kim" around the baby so she wouldn't believe anything I said. Can you imagine?? He told me I can tell her on her 18th birthday. I have 7 years to wait.
3. What's your favorite kind of Christmas cookie? You can add a recipe if you have time.
Hmmm, all cookies are good, but I look forward to the coconut cherry surprise balls and gingerbread. I also make a mean nutmeg log.
4. Did you grow up around any of your grandparents?
My Father's parents were gone but I saw my Mom's parents every day growing up. I think they were my most important influences in life. I was the only grandchild so I spent a lot of time with them. They each taught me things that have carried me through life.
5. What's your favorite winter sport-skiing, skating,sledding, other(?) ? If you are in a warm place, what is your favorite winter sport to watch when the Winter Olympics are televised?
I skated a lot as a child and we lived near a great sledding hill. Not a big fan of climbing back up the hill though. (haha) I tried skiing twice. (Once for a guy) It is not for me. I still don't understand why sensible people would strap sticks to their feet and hurl themselves down a mountain. . . . . . . . Lol
Since we are being honest here - I'll confess - I'm the kind of winter sport girl who gets dressed up in a cute ski / skate outfit and then sits by the roaring fire with a drink and a plate of food. Love the outfits - hate the winter activity.
