Have a Magical Holiday Experience at HGTV’s Santa HQ

HGTV Santa HQ Experience

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of HGTV Santa HQ and Reach Orb, but all opinions expressed here are mine.

The holiday bustle is happening. The gifts are being purchased. Everyone is moving so fast, and I am wishing that time would standstill. The kids are getting bigger. The oldest is now taller than our refrigerator; the youngest can now microwave eggs, and my daughter is borrowing my lipgloss. I look at them all, and I think about how lucky I am, and I try my best not to cry.

The middle child was excited and looked for a dress that matched mine, and the youngest hates to dress up, but he did find pants with green on them.

Christmas Gift Wish List For Kids Printable

Christmas Gift Wish List For Kids Printable

The holidays will be here before you know it! I don’t know about you, but my daughter is already adding requests to her Christmas list and it was hard to keep up with so I made a Christmas Gift List For Kids Printable so I would be able to keep up with what she wanted when it was time to go shopping. (Black Friday anyone?) We keep her list on our fridge so that way when she thinks of something she wants she can add it to her list, but she has to be picky because there are only 10 open slots for wishes. So I wanted to share with you the list I made, feel free to print it off and use it for your kids too!

Here is my Christmas Gift List For Kids Printable for you:
