Santa’s on his way: Watch online!

The Official NORAD Tracks Santa website has been one of our family favorites for years. Click here: NORAD and you can follow Santa on his Christmas Eve journey in Google Maps or Google Earth.

Don’t miss the Explore YouTube videos and photos from each location Santa visits, and track his route in Google Earth to watch him fly around the world!

The website has lots of fun activities for kids, including a holiday village countdown, Santa snacks, videos and more.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Advent envelopes for 2011

Home and Garden Television (one of my favorites!) shows you some beautiful — and easy! — Christmas crafts, including one by Share My Craft user Katie Watson for a special way to count down the 25 days of Christmas. “Each envelope has a coupon inside that is redeemable for something special (i.e., a family game night, a cup of hot chocolate, a piece of Christmas candy, Mom reading a book, etc.),” she says. It’s not only a fun family activity, but a creative piece of holiday decor, too.
