Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme

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 good health and happy memories.  Material possesions break and lose their luster, but memories of holiday baking, traveling, tradition, and games live forever! 

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?

No one gets to touch ANYTHING until Mom has her coffee.  :D  Then, we open gifts and play.  Nothing special, but we are together!

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

A continous flow of money every month so Jimmy and I could afford to get married, house and feed 6 kids, and finish school.  I love dreams...  :)

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

I have no idea, charge it?  LOL  We spend quality time together as a family.  It's fun to help others shovel snow or bake cookies for them. 

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

We never really sat around and played games.  When we did, we played a lot of Nintendo games, License plate games in the car, Name That Tune... We had a million made up games.
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?

Spending Christmas Eve with Grandparents.
7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?

Anywhere with NO SNOW and warm temperatures!  :)

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

1. Ricky: Sony Playstation 3

2. Twins: Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii.

3. Tyler:X-box 360 with Madden NFL 2011

Teen/Tween Reviews

Hello Blogging world! Between school, summer, appointments and dance, I have lost touch with this world! I am on Facebook:

I have a question:

There are SO many great products for babies out there. Why do they get all the press? My baby is TEN. I am beyond the cool baby stuff (although it is really innovative and fun to look at!)

Can someone PLEASE point me to products for teens/tweens??

My oldest is a teenage boy age 13.

Next is a set of 12 year old identical girly twins.

And of course, my baby boy is 10.

I am willing to be a reviewer/tester for any products for tweens/teenagers and even dogs!

My boys are sporty, they like their hair, and they love trends!

My daughters are beyond girly-girls and love anything that has to do with jewelry, hair, clothing, make-up...etc. You get the point.

We are a real household looking for innovative products to make everyday life easier.

Please send me links to products, websites or anything else helpful!

Thank you God!

Between going back to school and networking on Facebook, I rarely log into my blog anymore! We are still here, and doing well.

We had a nasty scare Sunday when we returned home from camping. Someone had opened the gate to Jimmy's backyard and Sage got out. She had already been wandering for 2 days by the time we got home Sunday afternoon.

The neighbor who was to watch her didn't know anything except that the gate had been open and no Sage. He assumed we took her with us camping and just closed the gate. He didn't call anyone and she was just gone.

We drove around for an hour or so looking for Sage, calling her name and looking anywhere we thought she might be. We gave up, and hoped someone had called a shelter or animal services to get her. But, no shelters are open Sunday, so we had to wait until Monday morning. I posted an ad on, hoping someone had seen her, and we sat back and waited for any news.

Monday morning at 8 am we got in the car and headed around to the local shelters, as no one had seen Sage. Animal control had no clue if they picked her up so we were on our own to identify her. After checking 3 shelters and calling 3 different police and animal control officers with no luck, I broke down and started bawling. I stayed strong for over a day now for Jimmy and his kids, but all hope was now gone.

Out of despiration, Ricky, Cheyenne and Wyatt got in the car with me and we started combing the streets, calling her name and stopping to talk to anyone who would talk to us. We drove 15 miles worth of city streets, 20 people must have told us they hadn't seen a dog around and I needed to go pee, ( 4 cups of coffee...) so we decided to head for home. I looked in the rearview mirror and saw a set of blue eyes just streaming tears and Ricky looking bummed, so I crossed a busy road and decided to look more. 2 more people gave us negatives, then one lady suggested we look by a local pool and golf course, because there are lots of people there.

We drove around up by the Aquatic Center, checking everywhere and no Sage. We decided to go home and refuel, then continue our search. I stepped on the gas to resume the speed limit and Cheyenne screamed from the backseat. I almost put Wyatt through the front window slamming on the brakes, but WHOA, there Sage was.

She couldn't lift her head, but it was Sage all right. She perked up her ears and we all stood over her crying. We had found her and she was alive! Wyatt carefully picked her up and held her close while I sped home. When we got her inside, she was shivering, scared, weak, tired, hungry and thirsty. We gave her what she would accept food and water wise, bathed her and looked her over for injury. The pads on Sage's feet are worn off, blistered and bleeding. She can't walk very well, and we have to carry her outside to go to the bathroom.

We took her to the vet, and they gave her antibiotics, antiinflammatories, and a clean bill of health! Our little girl puppy made it. She was alone on the streets from Friday evening until Monday early afternoon when we found her and she lived! It is a miracle from God that we even SAW her, that she made it as far as she had without getting hit or hurt worse, and we thank Him.

Thank you God for bringing us our little Sage girl back. We love her with everything we have, and she is not just a pet to us. She is more. :) Even Zipper was being nice to her. Thank you, God!

Snuggies for Dogs?!

First off: HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome 2010!!!

I laughed when I saw Snuggies for dogs sitting on a shelf at Wal*Mart.

For Christmas my twins bought me a cute pink Snuggie. I set it down and this is usually what happens:

Guess this is what Scooter wants for his birthday?!

Does anyone out there have a Snuggie for their dog?

In case you missed...


This is the coolest dog ever!
