Christmas Wishes Blog Hop!!!


Hello, hello! Are you ready for the holidays? Finished with your Christmas shopping? Sent out all your cards? I’m about halfway through my holiday work. Luckily this is my favorite time of the year so I don’t mind taking my time.
Thank you for participating in the Christmas Wishes Blog Hop! I’m so happy you decided to stop by my blog. In honor of the Christmas season, I’ve decided to share with you what each of my characters’ Christmas wish is and why.
Of course, they would all share the wishes of peace, love and health for those they love. That’s what makes them wonderful characters. But, like the rest of us, they also have wishes for specific items that reflect their own personalities.
Her Highland Champion
Malcolm Fraser would love his registration paid for the Lochaber Marathon in April 2013. He’s been running since he was a wee lad and thinks he could do pretty well if he could get sponsored for a spot.
Heather Winchester has been spending the last few years reading and studying for her Ph.D. in Archaeology, so she’d LOVE a gift card to a bookstore. Reading fiction never sounded to perfect!
 
Fractured Paradise
Rachel Grant is a self-proclaimed computer nerd, so she’d love the new 12" Ultrabook.
Aidan Camden keeps it simple. He’d love a new, sturdy backpack and other hiking/camping necessities. With him being a tour guide, he goes through them often.

Simple Treasures
Colin Munro has been told by his lass that he works too hard, so he would love a pair of tickets to a Celtic Football Club game.
Joanna Grainger has been in Edinburgh as a college exchange student and she’d love a sturdier and larger desk for her to do her studying. Right now she’s using one that barely fits her computer and one text book!

As for me, I would love a gift card to an office supply store. I think it would be GREAT to have a card so I could buy more notebooks for writing, pens, pencils, binders for organizing,…uh….where was I? Oh yeah, so, what about you? What’s your Christmas wish?
Just for visiting, one commenter will win a holiday surprise from me! Winner will be chosen, announced and contacted on Friday, Decemer 14th. Be sure to leave your email address. And did you notice the GRAND PRIZES of the Christmas Wishes Blog Hop? A Kindle Paperwhite, A Nook Glow, and a $90 choice giftcard for either Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

  24. Jeannette, I'd like that beach trip too! LOL! As for Staples, I thought about how a lot of people buy me books or gift cards for book stores, which I love, but how cool to have a gift card for a store like Staples too, with all those knickknacks for making the stories come alive????

    Sassy, I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers too.

  27. My christmas wish is for my dad to heal and get back to his old self. He just had quadruple bypass surgery on Nov. 19th and he is still feeling pretty weak and down. Hopefully with time and therapy he will be back to his old self. Right now i think it's just gonna take some time but some extra prayers would be nice. Thanks
