20. Angel on the tree top or a star? We used to have a moving Santa thing, but I'm hoping to get a star this year!
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? As a kid it was always Eve for our family. Then Eve with mom and Day with dad after the divorce. Then Day with Rick's family. This year it will be Eve with my mom and Day with my dad again in the Tri-Cities. Confusing, I know.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Don't have one... I guess I like ornaments with memories attached to them, like our "Baby's First Christmas" ones for the kids or other ones we've gotten on vacations and stuff. I like remembering when putting them on the tree!
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? I have good memories of ham with my family growing up and Rick's family has done prime rib the past couple of years. I think we're getting a seafood chowder with my mom and stepdad this year (a tradition of theirs), so that will be good! (Lisa, what are Nut Fingers? A southern thing?)

Nutfingers are a cookie. Like shortbread with pecans in it covered in powdered sugar. I don't know if it's a southern thing or a family recipe. (Or it may just be a family name for a cookie everyone makes.) I've never had them anywhere but at my mom and dad's house. I've never even made them. I could, it's just more special to have them do it, makes me feel like a kid at home again. I'll see if I have a copy of the recipe to send you. =)
