Your Grown Up Christmas List

I don't know how many of you know the song of this title. It has been done by many people, but I think the most popular is Amy Grant. It is about someone who remembers their childhood dreams and list of wants to Santa and then makes a grown up list for humanity of things like world peace.

I was wondering, if you could have anything for Christmas, funny or serious, what would it be?

For me, I just got everything I could ask for with DH's new job, my health and our house being redone through an insurance claim. But if I had to pick something I wouldn't normally get I think it would be for my sister-in-law to get her voice back strong and unstrained even just for the day.

On the lighter side of things, to be able to spend a day at Charm City Cakes would be really nice!

Hmmm...darned fine question. I got all misty when I thought of all my wishes. They're all so selfish though. So, on an unselfish note...

I'd wish for a strong healthy body for our dear Kadesma so that she can keep spreading her brand of love and joy to all she touches.

Actually that was the first one I thought of too, but then remembered my SIL and her chronic larangitis. Can I have both my wishes? (The day with Duff was just to illustrate a silly one).

EDIT: I was referring to Kadesma, but I like Suzi's first one as well.

Its your game, I say you can have whatever you want.

Hey suzi, in this game I'll lend you my indestructible cookie press. I swear you could press steel with this baby.
