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.

1. What is your holiday wish for your family?
Happiness! It has been one hectic year and my family has made a lot of sacrifices this year in hopes of next year and future years being a success! I can't begin to thank my family for the love and support they have given me over this last year. They have been so involved in every aspect of creating Cult Nails, and they have riden the highs and lows of this last year, so I am hoping as we fly home to be with our families this Holiday season, that everyone just has the happiest and best Christmas ever.

2. What is your Christmas morning / Hanukkah Nightly tradition?
Usually the kids wake up super early. Of course that is after mom and dad were up late making sure Santa didn't get lost! So the kids usually grab their stockings and climb into bed with us and we open stockings in bed. It buys us a little time to get our eyes open and ooh and aah over the stoclking gifts and then we all run downstairs for the main event!
3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
This is a tough one, but I dream of owning a house on the water, do you think Santa can fit that under the tree for me?
4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
Decorating the house for the holidays is the official start for us each year. My kids look forward to it as much as I do. When I was a kid my mother always made cookies and egg nog and would turn the music on and everyone would get in the holiday spirit decorating the tree. I keep this tradition alive each year. I make my Grandma Laura's oatmeal cookies and some coquito (the Puerto Rican version of egg nog) and we turn up the holiday music and decorate!
5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
My family wasn't a big game family. I can't really remember playing a lot of board games. But we did play the occasional Monopoly game.
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
I guess I already answered this one! :)
7. Where would you go for a Christmas/Hanukkah-away-from-home trip?
We are always away from home since Juan is in the military. So us going "home" for the holidays is going away for us. This will be the second time in our 15 year marriage that we get to go home for the holidays! I can think I can handle the madness once every 7 years apparently! Ha!
8. Check out GameStop  and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year?
I want the Xbox 360 with Kinect! Of course Juan thinks I am insane since we have the Playstation 3 which we solely use as a Blu-Ray player and to feed our Netflix addiction. I don't even know if we have any PS3 games actually. And then we of course have the Wii, which is so much fun, but to be able to play and not have to use a remote control? I have to have this! I also want to get the Jillian Michaels work out for the Wii and Rap Star looks like it would be so fun too!

Hopefully some of you will enter, I would love to see your responses to the questions above! Happy Holidays everyone!
