Making That Sweet WishList - Adventures With Ellie

Making That Sweet WishList

Happy Sunday everyone. Enjoying my afternoon. I'm scrapbooking SQUEAL. I'll share tomorrow what it is I am actually working. As I was doing so I came across this AWESOME giveaway at Today's Mama and well I said you never know right?! So after you read my questions (if you like) head on over to their blog and post on your blog for your chance!

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.


1. What is your holiday wish for your family?

Happiness & Joy & Love and wonderful memories for the Holiday Season is what I wish for.

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?

Its not actually a Christmas morning tradition its more of a Christmas Eve one. We all head to my MIL's w/new Christmas P.J's late in the evening. We have fun eating yummy goodies and chatting away and listening to Christmas music until Midnight when we start from youngest to oldest and you have to sing a Christmas song in order to open a gift. Its gets pretty funny by the 5th person as we end up singing the same song- Jingle bells..

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be? 

Wow lets see. Actually it would be to get a spot in a Design Team of my dreams-Since this is for Santa well he knows who I'm talking about Ha.

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?

Oh that's our motto around here- Money does not equal Holidays, Family does. So we love sharing stories, letters to Santa, baking, Snowball fights, going around the neighborhood and seeing the beautiful decorations and family time its always so much fun.

5. What games did you play with your family growing up?

My brother and I really didn't play that many games but what I do remember is playing Monopoly but mostly what I do remember was I loved writing stories that was my favorite thing to "play".

6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?

My mom really worked lots of hours for my brother and myself so we didn't really have Holiday traditions but she always made us feel so special no matter what. That is why I try to make traditions w/my kids but  I do remember we always make a trip to see Santa at Macy's. I have some funny pictures of my brother and I that's for sure. Now I take my kids every year to see Him I now have some funny pictures of them to cherish hehehe...

7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?

I don't think I would go anywhere but into the city I think New York City is a magical place at Christmas everywhere you look its so beautiful and so happy and just full of the Christmas season.

8. Check out GameStop (link to: and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year? 

Oh Lets see  More games for my Hubby's BRAND new Kinects (thank you Black Friday Ha) , A PS3 for my oldest son & an XBox for my youngest who doesn't have one (my hubby and oldest son have one)

Well Before I leave you I thought I'd share a picture my brother took of Sassy yesterday at the movies as it was her 1st 3D Movies well actually 1st time at the movies. She was awesome! So here is Ms. Sassy waiting for Tangled (which by the way was such a good movie!)
