Your kidding right?? No way, gravity is not a friend of mine.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?

Yes, One year I wanted a horse for Christmas and I just knew it was to much money for my parents (there were 4 girls and we were a single income family) so I asked for horse tack, brushes, saddle pad, hoof pick and tack box. I told them one day I would have one and I could be ready. Well Christmas morning came and as we all were opening our presents I had only one to open. When I tore the paper back and saw exactly what I wished for "horse tack" I was a little disappointed at myself for asking for something so silly. Well as I began to take the things out of the box there was a cute jersey shirt at the bottom and it had written on the front of it "I love my Horse". Hmmm, I thought I do not have a horse???? Well my parents told me to turn it around and on the back was the letters HOLLY! They had bought me a beautiful White Quarter Horse named Holly! I was the luckiest girl in the world!

14. What is the most important think about the holidays for you?

Jesus' birth.

Butterscotch Haystacks!!! Yummy!!!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Well most folks decorate their houses with tacky lights and my parents decorate by having all the grandchildren (16 of them) do a live Nativity at their home. What makes this so great there is a house 2 doors down that is on the local "tacky tour" so their is so much traffic that comes through limos, buses and tons of cars! I love that it shows other the real meaning of Christmas but most of all it lets my children let their light shine and it means the world to my parents!!
