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 is that we all remain healthy, safe and happy throughout the next year!

2. What is your Christmas morning / Hanukkah Nightly tradition?

On Christmas morning, we open all of our gifts slowly so we can take several hours opening up presents! Everyone has to watch each other open the gifts one-by-one so we can ooh and ahh over each one. We also take a break for breakfast to make the process last even longer!

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?

I would wish for a new house. When I married my husband over 7 years ago, I moved into his house, which was supposed to be “temporary.” With four kids now, we really need more room, and I’d love to have a big yard out in the country.

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?

Family traditions make the holidays special, like taking out treasured ornaments and decorations every year, and making the same cookie recipes.

5. What games did you play with your family growing up?

We loved (and still do) to play a card game called “31.” We each bet 30 cents per game. We’re big gamblers (NOT!). We also played lots of Scrabble.

6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?

We go to church on Christmas Eve and open all of our presents on Christmas day. My mom and I make quiche for Christmas breakfast with mimosas (for the adults only, of course).

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

I think it would be fun to have Christmas in another country to see how they celebrate the season. I’d love to go to Australia!

8. Check out GameStop and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?

Sony Playstation 3 160GB Holiday Bundle for my high-schooler

Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition Wii Game for my twins, who will take over their brother’s Wii if he gets a PS3

Halo Wars for Xbox 360 for my oldest son
