Mama Cindi's Christmas Wishlist

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?
     Monograms-I'm really liking the different looks you can create with these.
     A day at the salon-Total hair makeover, facial, mani, pedi...aaah!
     Hardbound- Little House on the Prairie book series
     Knitting Lessons- There are so many things I need to make
     Snow-  There's nothing like seeing Christmas lights in the snow.

2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?
     The handmade gifts I wish I still had were all the flannel gowns, diapers, and blankets my mom and    
     Nana made for my "babies" when I was little. They were treasures I didn't know I owned.

3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?
     I have made my share of pajama pants and blankets as gifts.  I would rally like to make something that my
     children will cherish for years to come. Maybe a sampler.

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?
     I would have to say the year I got my two-wheel Schwin.  We didn't have lots of money so my dad 
     found a used bike somewhere and fixed it all up for me.  It was royal blue.  Ten he taught me how to ride 
     it going down the little slope under Nana and Papa's tree in the yard. 

5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year?
      Money, clothes, etc.  They are teens and young adults and they know I can't afford alot.  I think they
      will be happy with what I come up with though.

6. What is your favorite holiday food?
     Kiffles!  Kiffles!  Kiffles!  This is a favorite from childhood.  My mom used to make it and she learned
     how from her mom, MomMom.  She hasn't made it for several years, but we are all hoping this may be
     the year.

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?
     I'm always making something, but this year I'm trying to make everyone a monogram ornament. 
     Also, there are the blankets, a different style this time.  And hopefully a few things I have up my sleeve.

8. What is your favorite holiday movie?
     A Christmas Story...."You'll shoot your eye out!"

9. Favorite holiday song?
    The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole and Oh Holy Night by Cece Winans

10. Favorite holiday pastime?
      All the cousins, aunts, and uncles gathered around the table playing games and laughing.  All the while
      eating and talking about past Christmas memories.  Sadly, we have all grown up and don't seem to do
      this much anymore.

Now go enter the contest, but don't win.


  1. Oh!!! I love reading lists like these :o) They are such a fun way to learn more about another blogger.

    Love your 5 items! I'm right there with you! (When ours were little, I loved "pre-reading" their see if they were appropriate of course :o)...and of course, they were awesome to read, so no excuse needed)

    ...and oh yes, how awesome to have those special handcrafted gifts from my mom, even more treasured since she has gone on to be with the Lord.

    ...I love to do or try out any type of handcrafted thing! (hmmm...definitely love the idea of doing anything like that all day long!) Oh, and I'd love to see your monogram ornaments.

    ...hmmm, what are kiffles? I'll have to google search this.

    ...absolutely love Nat King Cole and love getting to gether with family too!

    Blessings & Aloha!

  3. Hi Cindi.. thanks for peeking in my blog. I got the picture off of flickr. I think I searched under storybook. Have a great Christmas.

  4. I LOVE the name Coco! I actually really love Silas, too! So, so cute! I think we may go with Oliver. I was hoping for something more original {like Silas!}. But don't worry -- I won't steal your name!
