Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme

I've been a bit absent recently due to having one of my best friends visiting which has been AWESOME!  Anyways, I was catching up on email and saw this awesome Mama's Holiday Wishlist 2010 giveaway on TodaysMama.  The prizes are SWEET and I had to give it a shot!  If you'd like to enter, copy and past the holiday wish list on your blog and answer the questions and then link up your post here.  

Mama’s Holiday Wish List

TodaysMama (link to: and GameStop (link to: 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? That we'll know if the timing is right to move into our first house and that we could find a "perfect" little house for us.
2. What is your Christmas morning tradition? This year will be the first Christmas as our own little family unit, we have always been with my family and my husbands family on Christmas.  Normally, the kids wake up early, open stockings then lounge around or go back to sleep until adults wake up, then we all open presents, we never really took turns watching  each other open up one at time because that would take forever at my parents house with all the people but at my husband's parents house we do it that way.  Then we have a huge breakfast with tons of food.
3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?A new car with more presents on the inside like a spa day gift package, a starbucks gift card, and a babysitter! 
4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?  We make a lot of homemade gifts and decor.  We also do outdoor winter activities like sledding, going up to the mountains to pick out a christmas tree (before we moved here), driving around looking for neighborhoods with good christmas lights, watching classic holiday movies and having a good supply of cocoa on hand.
5. What games did you play with your family growing up? Monopoly and Balderdash
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood? Open one present on Christmas Eve, usually PJ's.
7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?  Somewhere snowed in with a mountain backdrop, like Leavenworth, WA, or any ski resort along the rocky mountains in British Columbia, Utah or Colorado.  Christmas in New York or Paris would also be very beautiful for a non-secluded Christmas setting with all the lights and Christmas shopping and festivities. 
8. Check out GameStop (link to: and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?
