Mama’s Holiday Wish List

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 call from Pdt. Obama asking Matthias to join his legal team
  • A letter from Santa Clause asking Matthias to join his legal team
  • A text from B. Madoff asking Matthias to join his legal team (I heard he pays well ;) )
  • A call from Matthias letting me know that someone asked him to join their legal team
  • and, maybe…a steam cleaner
2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?

It's a toss up:
  • a lone wooden, golden star accompanied by a moving message about Christ, from Matthias
  • Two FANTASTIC cubby hole laden shelves / coat racks--one orange, one red, also from Matthias.
3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?
  • I've wanted to give the gift of world peace to the world for so long but have just never gotten around to it--how exactly would I wrap it? But seriously, after being starving students for 8 years, I am a little tired of making handmade gifts at Christmas. I would much rather buy something this year... wishful thinking.
4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?
  • easy--easy bake oven. I still have it, and am hoping to pass it on to my little girl someday. No, I am not with child.
5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year?
  • Ty's list is in constant flux. Tonight, he wanted a pet cockatoo or boa constrictor; Becks wants a Wall-e, to replace the one he got last year and subsequently lost at the park--he is quite adamant about this.
6. What is your favorite holiday food?
  • hot, hot, ohh you got it, hot hot, HOT CHOCOLATE!
7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?
  • Beckham's bike. We will be transforming a $15.00 Dora the Explorer bike (from children's thrift shop) into a spanking Spiderman / Superman little boys bike. Before and After pictures soon to come.
  • Ty's ABC book - I've been working on it for 4 years, this is the year it will make it's debut.
  • fun shaped crayons (traditional crayons melted into fun shaped candy molds, i.e. cars, space ships, etc.) for the boy cousins
  • hair barrettes for the girl cousins
  • Alfajores (very yummy chocolate-covered dulce de leche cookie sandwiches)for neighbors
8. What is your favorite holiday movie?
  • Frosty the Snowman
9. Favorite holiday song?
  • Silent Night
  • Twas the Night before Christmas (when sung by Matthias, his mom, dad, and sibling)
10. Favorite holiday pastime?
  • making love under the tree (after we vacuum up the fallen needles)
  • OK, that last one is not a tradition, at least not yet, but maybe with a new Dyson vacuum…
  • setting up Christmas tree, discovering the ornaments anew every year and remembering each one's story, Christmas eve dinner, experiencing the excitement the boys exude as the day draws near, making cookies with my mom, discovering what Matthias has filled my stocking with!

looks like you better get started! i am not quite as talented as you so my homemade stuff is planned and started during the summer. it isn't until around dec. that i realized i was stupid for thinking i could do and give up. give me some tips on how i can become as crafty and maybe i'll handmake a gift for you (with the reminder of "it's the thought that counts when you open it up). i can't wait to see how you transform a bike that one has me scratching my head.
