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?
For all of my out of town family to get to come home for the holidays. 

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?
My dad always cooks a huge breakfast for the whole family.  It always reminds me of my childhood when I would wake up to the smell of biscuits and gravy coming from the kitchen. 

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be? 
  Umm, just for me?  I have been good this year  To send me here:

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
My hubby and I snuggle up on the couch and watch our favorite holiday movies and munch on our homemade caramel popcorn.  We pick our favorite movies from when we were younger and talk about why they were awesome.  It's something I look forward to every year.
5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
Scrabble, Rummy, and Twister.  Ha!  and my sister cheated at pretty much all of them.
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
My mom, sister, and I always bake different recipes that have been handed down through the family.  For example we make my late Aunt Vivian's pumpkin cookies, my late Mamaw's Stuffing, and my late Papaw's chocolate covered peanut butter balls, chocolate covered cherries, and his famous homemade almond joy bars.  Yep he loved chocolate and so do I.  Hehe.
7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?
 New York City!!  I would love to see Central Park at christmas time and window shop down 5th ave go to the top of the Empire State Building and pretend that we're in Sleepless in Seattle.  Ah it would be perfect!
8. Check out GameStop  and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year? 

1.Of course the Kinect!!  

2. The Wii bundle with oh yeah!  the New Super Mario Bros.  love it!

3.  Cause my hubby's been good all year too.

Under Construction

Please be patient as my blog undergoes some much needed revamping.  My ever fabulous friend is helping me completely redo my poor little blog.  I can't wait to share with you all the new changes coming soon.  Please visit Melanie's blog if you would like to update your blog or just want to add a few things.  She has some fabulous free christmas designs available right now.

Mmm cookies

Starting some holiday baking a little ahead of time with my favorite chocolate chunk cookies.  You know gotta make sure the recipe still works. These are so yummy.  I love how they always turn out perfectly on my old trusty pampered chef stone.  I am the worst enabler of their products.  See this stone right here it's 17 years old!  I have quite a few others that are almost as old!  I love them.  Think I'm gonna go pour a nice cold glass of milk to go with my cookies.  Hehe.  Don't you wish you were here.
