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?

My holiday wish is that we have have a safe and happy Christmas. Also that everyone remembers that it is better t give than to receive.

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?

We wake up super early and get ready for the busy day of visiting family and friends

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

Ummm.. A day at the spa and a shopping spree

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

Something free that we do is drive around and see all of the holiday lights while listening to holiday music. It is fun to see all of the decorations and spend time together.

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

We played the Atari a lot when I was growing up. My mom and I loved to compete against each other while playing Atari Bowling.

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

One tradition that has stuck is opening a gift on Christmas eve.

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

I would love to visit Disney for the holidays to see the parades and all of the decorations.

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

1. Zumba Fitness for Wii

2. Just Dance 2 for Wii

3. Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Wii

Since this weeks theme is ghoulish Halloween themed music, I’ll share one of my fave creepy videos. This is the song “Bones” by the Killers

 

 

I recently discovered this artist and am awaiting her new album “Life In Letters” to arrive in my mailbox. Her name is Lucy Schwartz and this is the title track from her album performed live. I can’t wait until the album arrives because I am sure I’ll be listening to it non stop..

I know you, with your heart of blue
You take your troubles and release the sound
Into the open, up from the ground
These words unspoken, you sing aloud

Words can be strong, like the beating drum
Like ten thousand voices that call together
A is the ailment, and B makes it better
C is creating your life in letters

Mmmmba ba Mmmba ba/ Oh Oh
Life in letters
Mmmmba ba Mmmba ba/ Oh Oh
Life in letters

So take me back, I have lost the path
I need to recover this life you lead
Sing when I’m broken and I’ll sing when I’m free
Sing for the world and then sing just for me

We are just stories, so here’s mine to tell
Give my heart freely, hope you keep it well
A is the ailment, and B makes it better
C is creating your life in letters

Mmmmba ba Mmmba ba/ Oh Oh
Life in letters
Mmmmba ba Mmmba ba/ Oh Oh
Life in letters

A B C, B C
Come on set me free

Mmmmba ba Mmmba ba/ Oh Oh
Life in letters
Mmmmba ba Mmmba ba/ Oh Oh
Life in letters

I found this online tonight and thought that I would share.

The Pen Pal Oath

1. I promise to write letters of sufficient length (they may not be 100 pages, but at least a few, and certainly more than an index card)

2. I promise not to ask annoying or personal questions, continuously ask for your picture or phone number if you don’t want to give it, or anything like that

3. I promise to not stop writing, unless you’re mean, or you do something listed above

4. I promise to be the best friend to you that I can be, considering the distance, I’ll lend an ear, give sound advice, and treat you with as much respect as I give my friends in person, because I will value you just as much

5. I promise to never criticize, degrade, or talk down to you, because that can hurt a lot, and you never know what a difference you can make in someone’s life by saying a positive/kind word
