Kicking Off the Holidays

I received products in exchange for this review.  As always, all opinions expressed are honest and my own.

I walked into Walmart yesterday to see a scary reminder that Christmas is only 45 days away.  Am I the only one that gets excited yet super anxious about that?!?!  I'm so not mentally prepared for the holidays.  I feel like I'm on over drive and just not ready to unwind and enjoy the season.  It's not so much the decorating and gift shopping that makes me anxious it's just I feel too busy to slow down and take in the special time of year.  Christmas is one of my favorites times of year and I love taking the time to do fun things with friends and family and see the joy in the little moments.

Whether I like it or not the holiday season is upon us and we kicked it off with a visit to HGTV's Santa HQ at Fashion Fair Mall.  Santa HQ has captured the magic of the season and creates a full experience for your little ones.  Forget waiting in a boring line for perhaps over an hour to see Santa when this year you can check out Santa HQ for a full interactive experience while you wait to see the big guy.  There are four stops after you check in including The Naughty or Nice O'Meter, Santa's Workshop, Santa's Observatory and finally seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus at Santa's Sleigh.

At the Naughty or Nice O'Meter your child gets to input their name and see the results for the year. My two little stinkers were on Santa's Nice List; I guess he's quite forgiving.  In Santa's Workshop the kids get to man the control center and check on the hard working elves.  You also get to make an Elfie Selfie where you can star in your own video.  The outcome is pretty hilarious.  The next stop you will find Elf-Ray vision in a 3D environment and also a festive backdrop perfect for taking family photos. Saving the best for last, you get to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus and rattle off the wish list.  Emily wants American Girl Doll Accessories and Barbies and Madi wants Barbies (where do you think she got that idea???).  Within minutes you get digital and print photos so that your memories can last a lifetime.

You won't want to miss out on this fun interactive experience so you can make your reservation HERE.  Santa HQ in Fashion Fair is open 7 days a week until December 24th, to see exact hours check HERE.
