Random Dozen Merry Christmas

We interupt our daily giveaways for Linda's weekly Random Dozen.
There are still two current giveaways and two new ones will be posted soon.

1. Which physical trait do you now accept--maybe not love, but accept--and no longer feel extremely self-conscious about?  My hair.  No curls whatsoever.  My girls are the same way, straight, fine blonde hair.

2. This week Meredith Baxter Birney, best known as the mom on the favorite 80s sitcom "Family Ties" came out of the closet, which led me to formulate this question: Who do you think is/was the best TV mom?

Came out of the closet haven't heard about that one.  LOL.    Well I'm always teased that I came for the Beaver Cleaver family.  lol  But my favorite of all would be Reba.  Love her.

3. Do you speak any foreign languages? Are there any you'd like to learn?
No I don't but there's times I would love to know spainish.  That way when your in a store with mexican men you would know if they were talking about you or not.  Maybe it's just down here in the South but they look at you like they could stare a hole through you while envisioning you naked.

4. Who is your personal hero?  My parents.  They taught me the christian way to live.  I never heard them say anything negative about other people.  If you can't say anything nice about them just keep quite.

5. What is one holiday food that you find extremely difficult to resist over- indulging in?  Pecan pie, oh that was an answer to thanksgiving pie.  lol  Anything that I don't get often, like pecan pie, or all the candy I make.  Which I will be glad when this rain is gone so I can make divinity.

6. Tell me about a Christmas decoration that has special meaning or sentimental value.  I can't think of any one particular one.  But any that my children made in school is special.

7. How do you feel about snow?  It's been so long since we have had snow.  What is that?  My youngest daughter is nine and has never seen snow.  I wish just for a little every winter.  Just enough to get outside build a snowman, take pictures, and know that she has finally seen snow.

8. On average, how many hours of sleep do you get each night? Not that I'm jealous of any number over three or anything.
7-8 hours. 

9. Tell me about your first crush.   I don't know who the first one was.  The one I think of first is the one that sat behind me in class and would blow in my ear during class.  Back when it was still called Junior High now it's Middle School.  So about the 7th grade.

10. You're stuck in a room for 2 hours with only a chalkboard and chalk. What will you write/draw?  house, flowers, clouds, birds.  I don't know give me crayons and a blank piece of paper and that's what I draw.  So I assume chalk would be the same.  Colored chalk would add a rainbow.

11. Do you dress for the current temp or for the day's forecast?  The day's forecast.  Especially if I'm going to be outside alot.  I don't want to get overheated no matter what.  Sorry at my age body temperature just isn't what it use to be.

12. Favorite Christmas movie is?   The Christmas Shoes.  Just found it on youtube.  You can watch it there.


  1. Fun answers. I liked learning a bit more about you!
    I have very fine thin hair too, but I´m still not comfortable with it!

  2. Your answer to number 3 cracked me up!

  3. I love the Christmas Shoes... so sad, but good too.

  4. Thena,

    Fine hair people unite! I've hated it most of my life wishing for more of it. I guess that is where those perm days came from. Love all your answers and gifts that our kids make are truly memorable.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  5. I wish I'd have thought about colored chalk lol....geez....I could handle colored chalk much better than plain white chalk!

  6. How could I forget about Reba, love her music and acting. You're right, she is an Awesome TV Mom. Pecan Pie, delicious, made me remember my Mum's Mince Meat Pie, made with real Ground Hamburger.

    I think you can get the film "The Railway Children" on DVD or Video, would probably have to check with a store that specialises in finding rare films on DVD or Video.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog today, Visit again when you get a chance.

  7. Divinity! Yum! Now I have to go find some and eat it ...!

  8. I have very fine thin straight hair, too. So few things we can do with it besides let it just hang there!

    I love that your parents are your heroes.

  9. Colored chalk...brilliant :)

    Divinity...yum. It has been a while since I made it...I may have to make some this Christmas!
