Mama's Holiday Wishlist 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?
• Running shoes to use on my new treadmill.
• Elastic waist pants to be in style again so I won’t have to use the said treadmill.
• Nothing to break around the house. After getting the garage door fixed yesterday the house is back to par.
• Different colored carpet. Light coffee color wasn’t the smartest choice.
• Did I mention sleep?

2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?
• A handmade cabbage patch doll from Grandma W.  I named her Cabbie. Wasn’t I a creative child?

3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?
• Where to begin... I have a long list, flowers on hand bands, baby toys, dolls, ruffely shirts, marshmallows, and a quilt. Seriously I could keep going for days!

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?
• Oh, this is a hard one… I don’t think I have met a present I didn’t love!

5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year?
• Elle has been begging and begging for a horse but I told her not until she is at least 15, then we will discuss
• Bling, loves the bling
• A Tat like Poppi’s. Love you Poppi!

Okay her real list is quite simple since she will only be 5mths old.
• Hugs and Kisses
• Blocks
• A stuffed animal

6. What is your favorite holiday food?
• Potatoes!! I love Potatoes!! Mashed, scalloped, twice baked, baked, mixed with sweet potatoes. I won’t shy away from any potato!

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?
• Marshmallows
• Salted caramels
• Beef Jerky
• Fruit leather
• Elleanor’s Christmas stocking, getting closer on it
• A few other surprises but I don’t want to give them away. Okay, truthfully I may not finish them so I don’t want to get hopes up

8. What is your favorite holiday movie?
Well, I have three and could watch them year round.
• National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
• Christmas Story
• White Christmas
• Love Actually

9. Favorite holiday song?
• I have a bath and bodyworks cd that I just adore.

10. Favorite holiday pastime?
• Sitting next to or partially under the Christmas tree everyday at night with the tree lite and house lights off. The smell is intoxicating!
• I love going to downtown Seattle and seeing the lights, shops decorated, the brisk air. LOVE IT!!
• Christmas parties! Getting dressed up, seeing everyone happy and joyful!
• Decorating the house, my house. I felt like a real grown up last year decorating. I can’t wait to decorate the tree and put up the lights.
