This week I'm saying So What if:

-We are not doing Elf on the Shelf this year. Hunter barely knows who Santa Clause is (and is terrified of him) and doesn't understand that he will be getting presents from Santa so I don't think he will get much out of the creepy elf that watches over him. Plus I'm far too lazy to do it.

-We didn't start decorating until last night. Not by choice but because our stuff was being held hostage in our friends storage unit while he was out of town for the long weekend. 

-We may have bought ourselves several items while Christmas shopping over the weekend. A good deal is a good deal.

-All of the presents I bought over the weekend were bought online. I didn't want to go near a store. Also, Amazon Prime rocks my socks off.

-I hesitate to buy anything from a store that's not on Ebates. My next check will be the biggest one I've ever gotten. 

-My kid is having more fun playing in the Christmas Tree box than he has with any of his toys, we may just return all his Christmas presents and give him empty boxes to play in.

-My husband wants to decorate the outside of our house "Griswold style" and I told him that was fine. I'm okay with our neighbors hating us for a few weeks :)

Stopping by from the SWW link up. I only shop online through ebates too. Also prefer to shop online than to go to a store. I wish my husband would be more interested in decorating our house, even if it was Griswold style!

Taylor gets Santa and understand the whole presents on Christmas day thing and we even have an Elf on the Shelf, but I"m far too lazy to do it. Maybe next year. Maybe.

Our elf just sits on the shelf watching over. I don't have the desire to get all kinds of creative. I think next year, I'll hide him in different spots and C can find him. Or who knows? Maybe I'll lose him between now and then.

Shopping without Ebates is just silly.

I thought I was the only one not doing the elf! I'm too lazy and B is too young to care. Please post a pic when your Griswold lights go up!

Amazon Prime is the BEST!

Elf on the Shelf is a cute idea, but I don't know if I'd be able to keep up with doing it every day. We've bought a couple things for ourselves, too, so far.

Oh I need to see photos of the outside of your house once your husband is done doing it 'Griswald style'!! :)

So neat that you get paid from ebates! Such a great idea for anyone who buys a lot online.
