A Giveaway I Didn't Want To Miss (And You Shouldn't Either!)

Over at TodaysMama they are having a fantabulous giveaway in conjunction with GameStop. You should head over there and enter to win (but continue reading this first!). And if that's not enough, Cathy Z has a giveaway from them too. Check out her blog for a chance to win another great prize.

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?
I wish for continued growth (I do have little kids, you know), good health and bundles of happiness. What else is there?
2. What is your Christmas morning tradition?
Mom and Dad head downstairs first while kiddos wait upstairs (making sure to stay out-of-sight). Then, when cameras are ready, the kiddos come down the stairs to see what joys Santa left for them. The next 30 minutes include squeals of delight, shreds of wrapping paper and little plastic pieces everywhere. When all the gifts have been opened, we eat breakfast and get dressed for a day of celebrating with extended family.
3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be?
We have a first edition 1930s kitchen, complete with drawers that lose bits of wood when you use them, only two outlets in the whole room, a sink that's literally sinking into the cupboards below and a makeshift 2x4 island to increase our counter space from 8 square feet. I'd LOVE to get a revised second edition kitchen if Santa could spare a few elves to make it happen.
4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money?
We decorate the Christmas tree and living room together (while sharing and making special memories). We bake cookies, decorate gingerbread houses and share our homemade goodies with others. And, best of all, we roast marshmallows in the fireplace. I'm sure Mary and Joseph didn't do that, but we still like it anyway.
5. What games did you play with your family growing up?
My siblings I used our imaginations a lot and made up our own games. Blockade, Spaceships and Rock Band were just a few of our favorites.
6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood?
Drinking eggnog while decorating the Christmas tree together.
7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip?
It just wouldn't feel like Christmas if I weren't surrounded by all my family (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc), so my destination of choice would be wherever I could go with 100 people in tow.
8. Check out GameStop and tell us, what are the top three on your GameStop wish list this year?
Xbox 360/Kinect bundle, along with the fitness and sports bundles to play on it.
