Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme
TodaysMama (link to: http://bit.ly/tmwishlist) and GameStop (link to: http://bit.ly/gamestop10) 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?
I wish for a healthy and prosperous year in the coming year. It has been a struggle for the last few and I think we are seeing a turn - I hope!!
2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?
One of my favorites is all three kids sitting at the top of the stairs until we get down and get the cameras ready. Then they get the go ahead and can run down and see what Santa has left them.
3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
I love to travel and I would LOVE a trip to New York City for our family to show the kids all the fun sights and great foos and fun things in NYC!
4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
We spend time with our immediate family and extended family. We have game nights and a Christmas tea. We also go up and cut our own tree from the forest which is a wonderful tradition.
5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
We are huge game players! Growing up we loved a game called Masterpiece (which I credit with developing my love of art), Risk, and lots of card games - one I loved was Canasta.
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
Making cookies trays. I love to bake during the holidays and have continued to do that with my kids. Sometimes my mom or brother will even join us.
7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?
Well, as I said above I would love to go to NYC. We did that once with my family growing up and I loved NYC at Christmas (well, except for the bitter cold!). But I would also love to see Disney World at Christmas!
8. Check out GameStop (link to: http://bit.ly/gamestop10) and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?
1.)I would love to get a PS3. We would love to use it for games as well as movie watching! 2.) Currently, we are missing one of our 4 wii remotes so I really need to replace that. 3.) I saw the Epic Mickey game on the website and that looks pretty cool! I think my whole family would enjoy that!

January 2010 Project 12 Page

I decided to participate in Project 12, a challenge to scrapbook a summary page each month of this year. I had a lot of fun choosing the pictures for this. I used a sketch from Becky Fleck that was provided.

Here are the highlights:

1.) Baseball starts - we have a tennis ball machine in the garage that the kids practice with.

2.) We went to the local hunting place to do soem target practice. Jock helped Peyton shoot for the first time.

3.) Remi broke another brick - that makes three times.

4.) Colston and Charlotte hanging out and "playing" together.

5.) My brother, sil and Remi playing our new game that we are all addicted to - Dominion.

6.) Peyton and her best friend dancing in their after school dance class that the gym teacher does.

7.) DH and the kids waiting in line at the Colorado Rockies Fan Fest.

8.) Remi's new karate belt - he is now an Advanced II Black Belt.

9.) Colston drawing - one of his favorite activities.
