I'm a Mom trying to WIN- to give her kids a game filled Christmas! (Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme)

TodaysMama and GameStop are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.

Mama's Holiday Wish List Meme
1. What is your holiday wish for your family?

For us to all get along. Some days are filled with peace and other days are well, NOT. I'd LOVE to have 31 continuous days of all of us getting along, no fights, no yelling, no back talk from the kids. *sigh* I'm gonna try my best!

2. What is your Christmas morning / Hanukkah Nightly tradition?

We (the parents) check to see if Santa has come to visit. Then we all go downstairs together, check to see what he brought us and dig through the stockings first. Usually he leaves us a little bit of a cereal snack, so we don't get hungry while opening gifts. Once all the gifts are open, Mom makes breakfast while the kids play with toys.

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

A bedroom set. My husband and I have been married for 12 years and we STILL don't have matching bedroom furniture.

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

We try to take a drive through neighborhoods and look at the Christmas lights. The kids oooh, and ahhh over seeing the houses lit up!

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

I remember playing Chutes and Ladders (my Mom's from when she was a girl) and Guess Who. Usually it was just the kids playing, but man did we have a fun time!

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

Every Christmas Eve each member of our family gets a new pair of PJ's. I know a lot of families that have that tradition, but it is one thing I remember fondly about my childhood.

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

I would LOVE to take the kids to Disneyland or Disney World during the Holidays. To watch the kids see such a magical place dressed up in it's best would be so fun!

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

The top 3 GameStop items on MY wish list this year are a Nintendo DSi in PINK, Big Brain Academy for Nintendo DS AND Call of Duty Black Ops for PC (for my husband). Hey...the question said "YOUR GameStop wish list". NOT the kids!
