. . .a gamer. . .

Well, I've had lots of ideas of things to blog about but it seems that the only times I'm sitting are when nursing a baby and only one hand is available to type or late at night after everyone has finally gone to bed and the only thing I want to do is sit and stare at the wall for a few minutes or frantically catch up from the day. . .you know how it goes!

In looking around for some Thanksgiving decorating ideas I came across some great websites and one had this amazing giveaway contest going on!!!!!!!!! I cannot tell you how happy my family would be with any ONE of these prizes let alone the grand prize of ALL! So pop on over to Today's Mama blog and check out her site yourself!

Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme
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.

From Sheri. . .
1. What is your holiday wish for your family?

My holiday wish for our family is that we would be content and happy to be together as a family.
2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?

Christmas morning we wake up, eat some yummy kind of baked goodies, {patiently} wait for Grandma to arrive, then open presents. . .usually still in our jammies, of course!
3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?

a decadent wish for myself? hmmmmm. . .a trip to a spa/health resort in some faraway beautiful spot where I would be pampered and trained to exercise & eat properly and come home totally refreshed with those last 20 lbs. or so finally gone!
4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?

sleeping in, staying up late, watching movies together, playing games, trips to the park, cooking & baking together--just being together.
5. What games did you play with your family growing up?

We played lots of games: Uno, Spades, Careers, Clue, Rook, Boggle, Scrabble, Take Two, Dutch Blitz, Hand and Foot, double Solitare, Connect Four, Yahtzee, to name just a few. . .
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?

Growing up we always went to cut our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and then left it up as long as absolutely possible. We usually use a fake {ugh!} tree but it goes up the day after Thanksgiving and stays up well into January.
7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?

Christmas away from home I would go to Florida where my in-laws are. One of my husband's sister's family also comes there and I would love to spend time with them all. Of course a trip to Disney World would be snuck in there somewhere too;-)
8. Check out GameStop (link to: and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?

1. Xbox 360 4 GB Console with Kinect

2. Nintendo Wii Red Bundle

3. Nintendo DSi XL Red Bundle

dreamin'. . .dreamin'. . .dreamin'

Not quite sure why I picked orange to highlight my words for a Christmas dreamin' wishlist except for the fact that Thanksgiving is tomorrow!!!!! My absolute hands down favorite holiday!!!!!!!

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
