...but I still love technology, always and forever.

Ohh, how I've missed y'all these past few days. (sniff)

Sorry for the mini-disappearance. My husband, kids and I drove down to visit family last weekend because I was the soloist in a performance my sister was putting on with her church's choir for the holiday. And so I spent several days worrying about how I'd do, since my sick kids had been coughing all over me and I had a sore throat. Luckily my voice stuck around, we got through it, and I made my way back home with my family. Phew.

Now the countdown to Christmas is officially on! My boys are 3 and 5, and I am having the most wonderful time watching them this year -- they are the perfect ages for the magic and excitement of the holidays.

Tonight Santa sent them their own personalized messages via email, and they could not believe it. My five-year-old was amazed to see his picture in Santa's book, and my three-year-old sat in awed silence while Santa talked about what he had asked for in his letter. It was priceless -- I love technology, don't you?

There's still time to put one of these together for your kids... and I would definitely recommend it. Santa says their name, and you can add their photo to his big book of kids, plus he knows exactly what gift they asked for and what behavior they needed to work on this year (although I didn't see an option for "whining" -- perhaps I should send a suggestion in for 2011, haha!)

The best part about the messages from Santa is the fact that they are 100% free! Check out Portable North Pole's website and send someone you know a message from Santa.

(Just in case anyone was wondering, no one from PNP contacted me about sharing their website, I'm posting it only because I stumbled across it on Facebook and thought it was fabulous. Plus, I know how stunned and amazed I would have been as a kid to receive a video message from Kris Kringle himself!)


  1. The Santa videos are wonderful! You kids would've been over the moon with something like that when you were growing up in the time Before Civilization.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing the pnp website. It was a lot of fun to creat the video and my grandson is going to be thrilled.


I ♥ comments. Me + you = BFFs 4VR.
