I remember when I was 7 years old......
Creeping down the stairs......
Hoping to see a pile of goodies left under the tree for me......
Excitement building upon seeing the plate of half-eaten cookies and an empty glass of milk......
Sooty boot tracks along the carpet that came from the fireplace (HE WAS REAL!!)
And there it was!!
A letter from Santa!!! TO ME!!!! (I literally peed myself with excitement!)
I will never forget that level of pure unbridled joy and I love seeing that same level of happiness in my kids at this time of year. Glassy eyes filled with wonder and glee at every store window...every light hung in the trees.
So, being the internet techie that I am....I sent my son a personalized video from Santa!! (Yes, I am that cool)
Oh. My. God! You would think the Heavens had split and the Glory of all that is Holy had poured right down his throat to the point of drowning him in rapture. He went NUTS!
And he was a perfect gentleman for the next 9 days til Christmas cause he was sure Santa really WAS watching him! ;-)
Figured since it worked so well on him, Id share it with you guys. (Not to mention the fact that it was just fun as can be for me...LOL!)
Check it out.... www.portableNorthPole.ca
You pick who the video is for and fill out personal information about the recipient (including adding a picture for Santa's nice list!) and the video is emailed to any account you wish.
You can also post it on social networking sites, embed it in blogs, and send follow-up videos that share different content each time!!
Super cool!! My kid LOVED it! (As did I....) ;-)
