More “Little Things” mixed with Christmas!!

Ok, Ok, so I found this AWESOME app to help spread Christmas Cheer and it currently has me completely avoiding all forms of work! ūüôā (It is currently only available on the iPhone but they say it will be released for Androids soon!) The app is Santa Spy Cam and it lets you impose little dancing elves into videos of your own home (They can also send your letter to Santa, leave behind small gifts & sprinkle magic dust on things around your home)! It is so cool! I downloaded it a few days ago but hadn’t opened it until this morning after I dropped little man off at school. Needless to say since I¬†opened it I haven’t stopped playing with it! ¬†Check out my first video below to see the magic for yourself!

Visit Santa Spy Cam on Facebook to keep up with the app, they also have a website with interactive stories that go along with various elf activities! I LOVE the 7 nights of Christmas poem and can’t wait to read it with Daniel so I can play with the elves after he is in bed, leaving behind little surprises like candy canes! For a little boy like my son this helps keep the magic of the holidays alive!

This review is done purely because I¬†find this to be a “Simple Pleasure”¬†and want to share¬†it with you, I was not asked to do this review and my opinions are strictly that– MY OPINION. I am in no way affiliated with Santa Spy Cam.

Christmas Comes Early…

I will admit it- I am one of those people who beat the mall at decorating for Christmas. I LOVE the holidays and usually pull out my Christmas decorations November 1st.

This year we are doing a completely DIY Christmas {thanks to a little help from pinterest & my extremely creative 6 year old}! We will be making our own homemade Christmas tree this week, and have already started our decorating of the house. My neighbor was standing outside complaining last night to someone on the phone that I had already decorated the outside of our houseРI totally wanted to storm out of the house and call her a Grinch (decided against it as I had been eavesdropping while doing the dishes).

I also started our annual tradition on Elf on The Shelf. I know, most of you are thinking ‘she’s nuts! TWO whole months of imagecoming up with ideas for Elf?!?!’ Calm down- I haven’t lost my mind completely– since my son goes to his dads for his Christmas break I lose almost two whole weeks in December so really it’s just a month and a half and come on, with all the awesome ideas I have found on Pinterest and some other great blogs (they are listed below in case you wanted to check them out!) it was hard to decided what Zip (our elf) would be getting into for the 6 weeks he’s here! (Ok, ok confession #2 I occasionally bring Zip out of hiding throughout the year when my son is having a particularly “disobedient” week… so guess more than just 6 weeks a year!)

Letter from Elf

Guess two confessions in a single post is enough for now! ūüôā Enjoy your week!
