News from The North Pole

Part of what I love about being a Mom is getting to experience things with my kids for the first time. This year Alex will understand Christmas a little more and I can't wait to do all kinds of fun things to make it magical! I've been waiting for two years to enlist the help of a little friend of mine from The North Pole.

I decided it was finally time for me to adopt an Elf from Santa. To order your Elf-Magic, click here.

I submitted the necessary paperwork which mission statement about Christmas, my favorite Christmas Song and a list of cookies I was going to bake this year. A few weeks ago, Mrs. Clauses nephew Buddy came by to do a home visit.

I am happy to say that we passed with flying colors and Vincent is scheduled to arrive in his little blue sleigh on December 1st! I will be posting about Vincent and his adventures at our house all through the month of December. Click here to see what our elves have been up to!

You can't talk about News from the North Pole without talking about the most important piece of correspondence in December. Nope, I'm not talking about Christmas Cards or Holiday Newsletters.....I'm talking about a Letter from Santa!

I came across this fabulous website the other day where you can order a custom letter from Santa for your child for only $8. It is called North Pole Secretary, they have 8 wonderful letters to choose from. Each personalized letter contains your child's name, the city you live in, accomplishment from the year, two gift wishes, sibling and pet's names. There is also a section in the letter about the true meaning of Christmas. Santa also includes some news from the North Pole. AND as if all this wasn't will be postmarked from North Pole Alaska! How cool is that?

Order your letter's soon....Christmas is coming!

  3. I'm definitely going to order a letter. I think William will get such a kick out of it!

  4. Thanks for those ideas -- they are great! You are so on the ball. I am way behind this year. But I have started listening to the Christmas stations. They have Christmas all the time on FM 100 (100.5 I think) and 106.5. Have a great day!

  5. i ran into santa in the grocery store parking lot on monday.
    no joke.
    he also collects books for children in jamaican schools.
    i'll have to post about it.
    i am SO not kidding.

  6. I wish they had that kind of stuff when we were kids! That sounds like so much fun. I wish I could share some of that with your kids at Christmas.

  7. The letter from Santa is so cool! Thanks for the link.

  8. It's crazy how real Santa is now-a-days!

  12. I have been to North Pole Alaska. We went to visit when my parents lived up there. So neat. I am so excited for Christmas this year too.

  13. Ordering my Elf today - thanks Connie!!

  14. I love the elf idea! I am ordering one today. I too have a two year old and he is so excited about Christmas. It is fun to see him start to understand some of the magic of Christmas :)

    I found your blog via Coconut is great so far. I can't wait to come back and read more during nap time.

    Thanks again for letting us know about the elves :)

  15. Cute elves!

    And I forget about the whole letters to Santa thing. Since I still have an 8 year old at home I better get myself back in the swing of writing to santa! And getting Santa to write back!

    Happy day!
