Some Christmas Eve Fun for the Kids!

First of all, in case you missed it, please check out this week's Blog Friend Feature. It was posted yesterday because of the holidays. I know you will love her! Read that HERE.

Kids excited for Christmas? You can have them call Santa for free and leave him a message. Or you can put Santa's voicemail on speakerphone and tell him if your kids deserve presents or giant lumps of coal. What? I'm the only parent who is about to go crazy after a week of Christmas break? Anyway, check out the free call to Santa here.

Or, your kids can get a call from Santa, too. Again, free. I'm all about free right now because "Santa" already spent enough on presents and doesn't need to spend any money today.  You put in your child's information and then the call is personalized. My oldest was thrilled that Santa knew he was in kindergarten. Check out that call HERE.

You can also track Santa's trip around the world HERE.

And don't forget that you can catch Santa in your house! Check out icaughtsanta.com to create your pic. You can download it to your computer and post on facebook and twitter, too. Use the code THINGS-I-CANT-SAY to get a 25% discount. No, I don't get anything from any sales, just passing along the savings.

Here is ours for this year- my youngest keeps taking his blanket and bear and sleeping on the couch, so I went with this pose.

I won't even tell you how many times I just had to slam the laptop shut as nosey little children came trying to look at my screen.

I hope that you and your families have a very Merry Christmas!

The Santa Tracker is now an official "tradition" in our home.

Skyler sent a letter to Santa and should be getting one back while we are gone, thanking her for the note and that Santa will do his best to fill her wish list.

But I already told her not to be too disappointed or surprised if she didn't get everything on her list.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Shell!

That is an awesome picture!

My aunt has a number you call call to find out where Santa is. I should try and write it down this year - it's great for getting the kids to bed!

Merry Christmas!!

I love it. I know the kids will too. Will his brothers rag on him for not seeing Santa? My kids would, LOL

I am pretty happy with ours http://www.icaughtsanta.com/gallery-photo/?galinv=1d4e44b6f1b658cd80358da15e715384&e=b2thX2FyYm9nYXNtQHlhaG9vLmNvbQ==

Thanks for the opportunity to win it :D

I can't count the number of times I have had to threaten calling Santa on Bubby this week. We were already tracking Santa on Google Earth and Bubby started again. I told him I could just call Santa's cell and tell him to skip our house :D

That picture is awesome! I asked my 16 y/o what he asked Santa for for Christmas. He said nothing. I told him Santa wouldn't bring him anything then. Suddenly he had a list! Ha! (NO, he doesn't actually believe, but he gets Santa gifts anyway) ;-)
