    A cruise. But I would settle for paint for the kitchen.

    A house. I hate house hunting. I just want to find a house that I like and have the seller accept my offer.

    I would like for my husband to have a job by Christmas. We are going on 3 months on only my salary. I would also like a peaceful heart. I would like for my children to have an amazing day. I am hosting dinner this year, and would like for there to be no incidents with the food. I mainly want my family to be happy. That is all. :)

    Honestly, I've got it. There's nothing in particular I want, or that I'm hoping to unwrap.

    But I can't wait to see the reaction to the stuff Peter and the kids are getting :)

    Non-material: I hope and pray that my friend gets through her chemo and radiation safely, and that that's the end of this nightmare for her. (And somewhat selfishly, I hope and pray that it's over for me as well. I could live without a repeat of June's surprise surgery.)

    I hope and pray for the health, happiness and safety of my family and friends.

    The AP in my building is pretty much on a death watch for his dad. Mr. C has worked in our building for a few years as a computer guru, so we all know him. I'm praying that the end is peaceful, and that Ken and his family can still manage a reasonably Merry Christmas-- his 2 kids are still pretty young. And one of the brothers is also losing a battle with cancer; I pray for him, his family, and the whole community as they face yet another loss this year.

    I worry, especially in these near zero temperatures, about all those who do without-- the homeless, the hungry, those who have lost hope.

    I want the same as we make the 23 hour drive to Florida starting on Boxing Day.

    My Christmas would be happy if one of my students comes in to school today--we're worried we may never see him again.

    I asked for a bluetooth for my cell, a food processor, and a sewing machine. Those were the bigger things.

    An engagement ring would be nice, but I am not holding my breath. I would rather have that as it's own special thing outside of Christmas.

    I want to make special memories with my kiddos. I want my 17 year to spend the day with me doing something that he will always remember doing. I plan on spending time with my 8 year old making her a quilt.

    I want for my sister's new stepson not to be a teenage prick and realize she didn't even know his father when his parents divorced. I want my brother in law's ex wife to realize an 18 year boy really needs his father (and friends).

    And I want my mother to be happy.

    My sister just got married in September. So this Christmas is at my house with my mother, my two kids, my husband, my sister and her husband, his teenager (the first time he has met any of us--his mother wouldn't allow him to attend the wedding), and my new brother-in-law's mother. Should be interesting!

    Well, I'm getting time to spend with my dh over the holidays and especially Christmas day so I couldn't ask for anything more. I can't wait to see the look on my daughter's face when she opens up her gifts.

    What would I like for Christmas? Peace on eath, good will towards, well, everyone. Barring that, she must be of temperate disposition, own her own kayak, and love being outdoors. Most everything else is negotiable.

    I am truly blessed, so I want nothing. I would like for my mother in law to get well, and a cure for MS would be wonderful, as it is hard for me to watch my SIL suffer from this disease. I would really like everyone to have a peaceful heart this holiday.
    On a lighter side, I told my son I wanted a purse. : )

    I'd love a genuinely good gal pal to hang out with here & there. We don't have to talk on the phone everyday or anything, but just someone to have a blast with & a girls' day out w/ sometimes.

    DD is coming home for five days--I want a fun, close visit with her. Her BF of nearly two years just broke up with her; my fondest wish would be for her to finish college next fall, get a job closer to home, and meet someone who will treat her like the great person she is. (But I would like replacement copies of my two favorite Christmas CDs, which I cannot find anywhere!)

I would to be able to get some things done here at the house. Got BF a couple of things he really wanted and am hoping they get here before the big day.

    I would like for my husband's Pepere to come home from the hospital and be healthy again.

    A baby would be nice.:)

    Material things my father gave me boot heaters which I really needed. So I was super excited to open those. I also need boots for recess duty. I don't really need anything else. OH I did tell DH I needed a helmet for skiing.

    I would like...

    Baby Liam to stay growing healthy and strong during his last couple of weeks inside me!

    My family to have fun in Disney World and not worry about James (DH) & me back home. (We were planning to go but can't due to pregnancy related issues)

    To be able to cook James a proper Christmas dinner, including a turkey made in the oven, mashed potatoes (NOT from a box), pies, etc.

    :hugs::love:

    :yeahthat: I live 3 hours away from my good friends and due to the fact that they have young children and husbands who can't spend more than a few hours alone with their children, I see them once a year.

    I haven't had a Christmas with my family since 1995. I can't remember when the last time my immediate family were together...maybe the early '90s. A mini-family reunion would be wonderful.

    Hopefully you can have that very soon! Is there any way you can organize a get together? There may not be enough time for Christmas, but what about during the start of the new year?

    Not much needed here. I'm asking for some perfume, but that's it.

    I would LOVE for dh to get the major account he's been pitching for the last two months. His agency made it to the second/last round, so if they won it on Jan. 8, it would be the best belated gift ever. I can't tell you how happy we were when they got news they got to the second round.

    My hubby and I are keeping it low key this year ($50 max) and I'm glad. I really don't want anything (except maybe a washing machine so I can do laundry in my own house- too bad I can't get one for $50). I plan to buy myself a treadmill. :)

    Everything I wanted I got for my birthday earlier in the month. My mil bought everything on my list that was supposed to be for Christmas too. I don't need much of anything else. My husband has presents for me under the tree but for once I have no idea what it is! he did get me a magazine subscription.

    I'd like to meet Mr. Right. I'm going the online dating route right now, and having some good times, but I'm really ready to settle.

    As for material things, I really wanted a smartphone, but I caved and bought it myself ;)

    For my family, I want our blended family to be closer and realize that we cannot be a perfect family but that having each other is a great blessing.

    On the personal side, I want to feel confident in my cooking and I want to one day be a great cook because food brings people together. I would love to bake goodies and bring them to neighboors, I would love to prepare great meals and have a lot of people over. I also want to overcome my anxiety of having people at my house and start hosting a lot of dinners. I also want to learn how to be a good friend.

    Material stuff, I would love for that whole in the basement ceiling to be covered by Christmas time. My husband is not handy and of the both of us I'm the daredevil so it looks like I may be the one who's going to figure out how to cover it. I would also love to finally get rid of the big couch in the dinning room. It's a pain get the cat hair out and it ruins the look of my dining room but I love sitting there to read or do some work while looking at our beautiful backyard.
