Remember to @5crookedhalos me and use hashtag #5QF if you go the Twitter route!)

1. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
 I'm a big fan of the traditional Christmas cookies, the sugar cookies in Christmasy shapes like trees and snowmen, piled up with lots of gooey icing. Those are so yummy! I like to keep it simple. Also, not really a cookie per say - but the little Debbie Christmas tree cakes - DELICIOUS! I've devoured probably a whole forest of those little white Christmas tree cakes this year already.

2. What's your favorite holiday movie & why?
3 way tie - Elf, A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation.

Elf for Will Ferrell reasons - he's so damn funny! Don't act like you don't laugh at his cotton headed ninny muggins!

A Christmas Story - Ralphie never gets old! I watch it at least 5 times when they show it for 24 hours straight on Christmas Eve every year.

Christmas Vacation - when I am feeling overwhelmed with my own family's dysfunction, I can always count on Clark Griswold to make me feel better about myself. The grandma with a cat wrapped up in a present box - It's a classic.

3. Is there a gift that you bought for your kids that you wish you hadn't after they opened it?
Technically, no because I don't have kids. I do have dogs though. And I regret EVER introducing them to fluff from stuffed animals. Sometimes they equate stuffed animal fluff with my couch cushion fluff. I'm sure children would never do such horrid things :)

4. What is the messiest room in your house right at this moment?
Dining room by far. Our dining room in the mecca in our household. It serves as the entryway room from the garage when you walk into the house. It also very freely flows into the kitchen and living room areas. More specifically my dining room table is a natural disaster area. It's where we pile up all of our shit. I plop down my purse there, the mail, my ipod after a workout, Skye's laptop is housed there right now, along with all his pocket treasures.
5. What is the furthest you have driven for the holidays?
Pennsylvania. My dad's mom's family is from Pennsylvania. When my brother and I were very young we used to rotate holidays with them and drive up there every other year to visit. The first time I'd seen mega snow was on a PA trip. It was also the first time I'd had my accent challenged - I mean, who doesn't love a sweet southern accent? We've since let that trip go and now the furthest I travel is about an hour from my house. We are blessed (& cursed) to have all of our immediate family within an hour drive.

Happy Holidays!!!

I LOVE sugar cookies, for some reason though, I cannot bake them. I always overcook them. Maybe I will try again this year :)
I love your Christmas movies, I think we might have a Christmas movie marathon tonight!

Cami - you know it's true haha
Danna -I have not yet been able to perfect the sugar cookie either! Mine are always a little too crispy. Personally, I believe anything with icing tastes better! :)
