Not Martha

what I want for Christmas: last minute additions

Snowy Village Cakelet pan from Williams Sonoma

Snowy Village Cakelet Pan from Williams-Sonoma, I’ve always resisted buying the specialty holiday bakeware from W-S but I don’t think I can let this one get away. Besides, it will go really well with the stacking chocolate evergreen tree molds I got ages ago from the old Martha Stewart catalog. (I miss that catalog.)

Lego Harry Potter video game for the PS3

How did I miss this? A Lego Harry Potter game! I mentioned before that the Lego games are a ridiculous amount of fun because you can play them together, and a lot of the puzzles need both of you to solve them. That and if your character should expire you simply pop back into existence, no waiting, no loading, no throwing you back to the start of a level. This game is years 1 to 4 which means there will be more games coming along, yay.

    Thank you! I have been deep sighing about what to get a friend, and that book is perfect! Click, click, click it’s on the way. Hope you get all your presents!

    Simple – Just to be clear this is a video game, not a set of Lego blocks. You play little Lego people and when you expire you explode (in the cutest way) into a bunch of Lego bits.

    I remember watching my husband playing the Lego Star Wars and it was a blast. I’m always interested in games that are both fun to play and fun to spectate.

    The Lego Harry Potter games don’t come out until March 23, 2010 – just in time, my son informs me, for birthdays! ;-)

    I went to college with Grace! She is such a sweetheart, I’m so jazzed that you’re featuring her book!

    Love the lego series, I had no idea there was a “Harry Potter” edition! … quick tip, “Game Stop” guarantees their used games, you can save lots of money buying games previously owned!
