Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme

Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme
TodaysMama and GameStop are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.

1. What is your holiday wish for your family?
My Holiday wish for our family is that we always remain as close as we are today and
never lose sight of that which is most!

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?
The kids usually get up early to see what Santa has left them under the tree. We also like to have french toast and hot cocoa for breakfast.

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
I would ask for a shopping spree at J Crew or Banana Republic. I love their clothes.

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
We have fun decorating the house with the kids, baking treats to give to friends, playing games,
and just spending time together.

5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
We played a lot of board games growing up. I loved the Game of Life and Clue. We also had an
Atari that I thought was so awesome. Oh yes, and Simon...remember that one? Uh oh...I'm showing my age.

6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
The opening of presents on Christmas morning is a tradition I have carried over from my childhood. As a child we would always drive to the coast to see my Grandparents on Christmas day. I wish we could do that now, but instead of a 3 hour drive it would be a 2 Day drive. We do however, call Mema and Papaw, Nana and Grandpa Jose.

7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?

I would love to be able to do Christmas at Disney one year. I have never seen it at Christmas.

8. Check out GameStop and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?
1. I would love to get the Kinect for my step kids who have an Xbox 360.
2. My husband would love Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3
3. The PS3 Move.

Book Wreath

Here is another craft project I have been working on... a Book Wreath!! I have seen them done different ways and they all look fantastic.

I am planning on making one more.
I like the simplicity of it and the easy way to make it work for any time of the year by just changing out the ribbon.

My wonderful Paper Tower will be delivered tomorrow afternoon. Can't wait!! Once we get it set up... I will definitely take pictures and post!
