iCaughtSanta! And So Can You!

I've been away lately, and having a bit of a rough time with things... So what better way to turn things around and get into the holiday spirit, but to catch Santa in the act?! I caught him putting gifts under the tree for our little girl, and so can you! You don't even need to spend all that money on fancy spy gear, or buy out a Starbucks espresso menu to do it!

Just head on over and check out this awesome site: iCaughtSanta!!
They have a number of poses of Santa - from getting caught in the act, to setting the presents under the tree! Uploading your photo is so quick and simple it only takes a moment. You can even edit it after uploading to be sure it will work best with the Santa image you choose. The image of Santa can be resized, and the colors adjusted to better suit your photo too! - I realize my photo is a little lighter than Santa is, but I didn't have a chance to get a better photo, and wanted to be sure to get this posted right away so you could enjoy it too! 

After creating your photo, checking out, and downloading it is just as easy as uploading it is! I couldn't have dreamed of an easier process! 

To top off an already amazing site, they have now added Santa's Magic Maker, featuring Santa, Tooth Fairy & Easter Bunny Characters!

Imagine the look on your child's face when they see you caught Santa delivering their presents! What better way to show them they've make the nice list?? I know our little lady is going to be ecstatic to see he came last night! This would be especially helpful for anyone with younger kids that are doubting Santa is real! My poor niece had older children telling her he wasn't real when she was only 4 years old... Something like this would have been amazing to share with her then! 

Now for the best part - whatever the reason you'd like to share this with your child, you can win the chance to here! You just have to enter below! If you don't want to enter, or just want to get yours right away, they are offering my fans a discounted price of 7.50 instead of 9.99! Just head over here to get it!

Rachel And The TreeSchoolers - Make Learning At Home FUN!

It's not often that I find a kids show that I'm interested in that ALSO teaches anything of any real value... But this amazing show has changed that! 

I would like to welcome you to the world of Rachel and the TreeSchoolers, a fun little bunch of talking animals that use music and fun to help your little ones learn, and build character. In the episode A Rainy Day, you meet Rachel, a wonderful woman full of positive energy, and her class of Abacus Finch, Isaac Newt, Chroma Chameleon, and many others that will bring a smile to your childs face.

In this particular episode they explore the concept of weather, rhyming, classifications, some sign language, and problem solving.I enjoyed it just as much as our 6 year old daughter, and her 5 year old niece did, and could watch it over and over again. But I'll leave that to my daughter - since she's already watched it probably 30 times since I gave it to her! She loves the catchy songs they sing, and I catch her humming or singing them to herself constantly. This show truly does make learning effortless. It also taught them both that sometimes the things they are scared of, aren't so scary at all. They were delighted to see Abacus overcome his fears, and to talk about the fears they wanted to overcome themselves. Since the episode is based on a rainy day, we talked about things that they could find to do inside when it gets too rainy for them to play outside. Aside from wanting to watch the show again and again, they came up will all sorts of ideas they'd love to do instead of being sad that it's too rainy to play outdoors. I couldn't be happier with how much they loved this show, and I highly recommend it to any mother out there with a younger child.
