Holiday Wishes

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

1. What 5 items are on your holiday wish list this year?
·  A treadmill - so I can someday maybe fit back into my pre-pregnancy clothes.
·  A Canon Powershot D10 - I've pretty much all but killed the little camera I have
·  A rocking chair for Madeleine's room - I had to steal hers to put in the baby's room and Little Miss Monster is not so happy about that.
·  A huge gift card for groceries and someone else to go buy them for me - I suddenly hate shopping more than anything in the world
·  A peaceful, guilt-free, stress-free holiday season - I know, I'm really funny

2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?
Most recently, the scarf from my friend in Virginia. It was completely unexpected and is so soft and comfy. I have received a lot of handmade gifts so it's hard to pick an all-time favorite, but the scarf is my favorite of late. Especially now that I have snow at my house already. Ugh!

3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?
I have an idea for coordinating quilts for the girls. I don't know how to quilt. I barely know how to sew. But I really want to attempt it someday. And someday soon before they both grow out of the interests.

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?
I don't remember Christmases as a child very well. I remember the year I got a Cabbage Patch doll - I was so excited. Also, my first CD player when I was a teenager (what? I'm old.). It was beyond unexpected and it was AWESOME!

5. What items are on your kid's wish list this year?
Madeleine and I just had this conversation last night. She wants Santa to bring her a bunny, a bear, and a girl dollie. And "that's all. Just three, Mommy. Nothing else." Wow.

6. What is your favorite holiday food?
Sweet potatoes.

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?
I can't answer that here. The people I am hand-crafting for read this :)

8. What is your favorite holiday movie?
I am really emotional about holiday stuff so I actually tend to try to avoid it. Maybe It's a Wonderful Life though. I really like that one.

9. Favorite holiday song?
O Holy Night.

10. Favorite holiday pastime?
I love all the time I get to spend with family at the holidays. I think my very favorite is going to Santa's Workshop the day after Thanksgiving with my sister. That was the hardest part about staying in Virginia for Thanksgiving, I didn't get to go do that with her.
