Portable North Pole *

AHHH! So the Holidays have become one of my favorite times of year again, especially with a 2 year old running around!! (I’m not a big fan of cold OR snow but since becoming a mom I just can’t help but get excited playing “Santa”. I just wanted to take the time to share with you one of my all time FAVORITE features of this special time of year! I came across the website Portable North Pole in 2011-Paige’s first Christmas. It’s a FREE video that you create for your little ones to watch from Santa and his elves. It’s literally adorable and we’ve been doing it since her first Christmas (This is only her 3rd HaHa)! Each year I’ve gotten the reminder in my email and I just jump for joy!! It’s seriously SO fun and incredibly simple to produce. Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 4.24.00 PM Once you get to the site just click on the “Start Here” button (It’s bright green, you can’t miss it!) and get started selecting all the options that apply to your little one(s). It’s so much fun making it personalized to fit each individual. The options are endless and they seem to fit almost any scenario. You even get to include what they’ve been asked to work on, no thumb sucking, potty training, eating your vegitables. . . .it’s all age related. (This year we asked Paige to stop throwing Temper Tantrums! LoL Terrible 2’s!) You also upload a photo, what state they live in, etc. and it turns out SO cute! Also, You can make as many FREE videos as you want (naughty, nice, multiple children, adults, etc)!! It’s addicting. We did a ton for everyone at my office the first year, it gets pretty entertaining, especially in the adult option. . . .   Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 4.24.23 PM Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 4.24.57 PM Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 4.25.16 PM Anyhow. I just wanted to share with you what a finished video looks like. . . . you can share it via. email, Facebook, Twitter, link, etc. once you’ve finished. I typically email it to all the grandparents and post to Facebook. I’m sometimes “That” mom. . . but I can’t help it! It’s the cutest!! * To Watch Finished Video Click Here:  Santa’s Video To Paige!
