12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge- Day 8

 Day 8: Least favorite thing about the Holidays

As cheesy and cliche as it sounds, there isn't really anything I DON'T like about the Holiday's. Christmas is my FAVORITE time of year, hands down! I love spending time doing fun Christmas activities with the girls, teaching them the real meaning of the season, spending time doing holiday activities with friends, all the time spent with families, seeing the girls tear open their gifts on Christmas morning. LOVE.IT.ALL.

Tonight 'Santa' sent the girls a package in the mail, The Elf on the Shelf. Let me just tell you, they ate it up. It was the cutest thing ever seeing them sit SO still and listen to every word I read from the book. They named their elf 'Johnny' and we registered his new name with the website. They were so excited to see that 'Johnny' joined the Hall family, too sweet!

OK wait, I did think of ONE thing I don't like about the holiday season, the TRAFFIC! Most of the shops/mall are on the West side of our town, that side of town is always INSANE during the holiday's, which drives me nuts!

What are some of the things that you don't like about the holidays??

I definitely have to agree with you about traffic, it's horrible wherever you are!

Traffic is always horrible...especially around here when it's raining...what's up with that?
Wish I had kids to share the elf on the shelf with! Maybe I should just bite the bullet and get it for my husband?!? What do you think?
Happy Holidays!

Love the Elf on the Shelf. Ours is named Chuckie. Daddy reads the story every year after dessert on Thanksgiving night.
