Joann's Christmas List

Instructions: the Target one is a wish list I composed...there are a few on there that I really love and some that I really like--basically it gives you an idea of my clothing/jewelry taste. The slip-on Converse shoes are way cool. I like books and movies a whole lot too. The books & movies are in order of desire:)
Books (all w/o highlighting/underlining please):
Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller
Knife of Dreams (book #11 in the Wheel of Time series) by Robert Jordan
Anne books (I have 1 & 2, and would like 3 & 4 as well) by Lucy Maud Montgomery
The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence
Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther by Roland H. Bainton

Movies (DVD’s only please):
Anne of Avonlea (the 2nd one)
The Little Mermaid
Singin' in the Rain
Muppet Christmas Carol
Nacho Libre

converse (chuck taylor) all star slip-on shoes (black) unisex (size 10 in women’s)
Search on line (I’ve seen it lots of places)—it runs around $40--they look just like regular converse low tops, but they don't have shoe laces because they are actually elastic where the tongue is sewed to the sides of the shoes.

Gift cards:
Old Navy
Fred Meyers
Barnes N’ Noble

Target on-line
Joann's Wish List

Mama told me that the link no longer works for my target wishlist, but if you go to and then click on "wish lists" it will ask you to enter in a person's name---type in "Joann Whittaker" without putting in a location for me and I will come up!

PS--the things on the wish list (except for a few) and also to give you an idea of my style if you want to risk branching out from the list:) But I do really love the black skirt and red coat (and the other stuff too I guess:)

Mama's Christmas List; updated 12/2

New items added 12/2:

Books about Rosemal painting

warm terry cloth bathrobe
Warm PJs (Flannel ? -- like what the girls have gotten at Old Navy, etc)

Nice sock with small floral designs or things like I've seen on Beth

“Little House on the Prairie” on DVD – Seasons 5 and thereafter
pretty jewelry – no hearts (I have a lot of hearts already)
henckel knife (or equivalent – ask Beth)
– I have a good paring knife and one with a 6 ½ inch blade
Scrapbook tote –

- > ‘Crop n style P3 paper tote
-> Fmpguru/ MemoryStor rolling scrapbook cart and organizer

Books: “For Women Only”

DVDs: “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”
Padded hangers

Light table (I haven't looked for any of these, but know I'd like something for tracing -- instead of having to hold the things up to the window to trace. I can only do that when it's daylight out!!)

I'll add things as I think of them, so check back if these don't help. Some of these items are more expensive, so if several of you want to go together to get me something, that's okay with me. You aren't required to get me anything, though. I'll still love you no matter what!!

I've been pondering this Christmas gift thing for awhile, with little success. I suppose there are some 'things' that would 'make my day', such as:

the Coming of Jesus!!! Wow! That would be fantastically fantastic!!

the total healing of Holly! No 'thing' could compare to that!

a visit from my 'kids' - Hey, you could give mom and I a combined gift!

But down to the ordinary - I have three books I'd like, and used books are fine -
- Fifth Seal (A.D. Chronicles, #5) by Bodie Thoene
- The Temptation (Mustard Seed Series #3), Nancy Moser
- Legends of the Guardian-King (4 books), by Karen Hancock
A new belt would be nice
NEW idea! An indoor/outdoor thermometer + perhaps rain guage? Don't need
clock, though it's OK. has some ideas
I have plenty of clothes - items from 20 years ago still work for me
I have lots of ties - perhaps I'll pass a few on - beware of what you open!
I like gadgets (at least for a few days before I lose interest). Been thinking about one of those LED flashlights with lots of LED's . . .
I like DVD's that I can trade in for other DVD's if I want to . . .

Most of all I like you, my family, who make me proud. Few dads not only survive marriage to one sweety, but also have great kids who love Jesus and seek to live like it. I am greatly blessed and look forward to being together with you for whatever time works out this holiday season. And some fun internet video times with you special and missed ones in Singapore!
