10 Things I Want for Christmas

My daughter, all 9.5 years of her, has 46 items on her Christmas list. Me? Not so much. And, with the exception of #4, I know I'm going to get them all. Then again, I'm not asking for too much (again, with the exception of #4). Go see the other wants at Ten on Tuesday.

1. A new camera, which I already got.

2. Rechargeable batteries (and charger) for that new camera.

3. Gloves for the bitterly cold mornings when I take that mutton head o' mine for her a.m. romp.

4. Peace on earth.

5. A Bruce Springsteen concert shirt, which I already bought myself for my husband (or a child) to wrap and give me to make my Christmas morning!

Nice, short list. :) It's fun being Mom and buying your own stuff to get wrapped, huh?? er...

Has it been really cold where you are?? It feels like it's freezing when I take my daughter to the bus stop in the am and my teeth don't stop chattering until I've been back inside for about half an hour. Do you like mittens?

loads of questions, I know. :) Merry Christmas

I'll take "peace on Earth" and a "smokin' laptop" for less than $1,000, Alex.

Oh she'll be happy alright! You're way on top of it. Except for that peace on earth request (so sweet). Let me know how you'll figure that one out.

Let's share the peace on earth.
It's a start.

I just mentioned the things I dream about.
We've had Sinterklaas already, that's our gift-event.

My list is at:

Nice list! I am glad you are getting them all--we mommies deserve it! LOL I guess I need to get my list going. It will be pretty short, too.

I told my kids and partner that they could just get me some nice kitchen tools to cook with. Nothing nicer than to have a good pot, pan or tongs. Heh. ;-)

No. Really. I did.

I'd like to be smoking a doobie while having some peace on earth. Unfortunately, neither is gonna happen. ::sigh::

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

It's great to make new friends!

I couldn't come up with 10 either. Guess that means we are happy, well-rounded people, right? If we could just have peace on Earth, why everything would be perfect!

Bren said...

46, huh? She's even got my little diva beat!

You are too funny buying your own t-shirt for them to wrap. At least you got the one you want, right?

Kimberly said...

At least you know you will be getting what you want! It is a crap shoot on my end!

Dude, I would totally give you #4 if I could. Maybe if we all wish really hard....


I mentioned to Eldest the other night that I had a fairly wide open day Friday. Writer that he is, he wondered if I would perhaps like a wri...
