I'm starting to get excited, Christmas is only a few short sleeps away. I can't wait to see the boys face when he sees the tree and the presents waiting for him. I can't wait to see his delight at his new toys and watch as he enjoys them. Of course its the baby's first Christmas so that's exciting too, though he won't really know what's going on, I'm positive I'll catch him eating paper.
All that being said, I have a lot of wrapping to do. My shopping is pretty much complete and this year Hallmark helped me out in that department. Check out some of the great stuff I received as a member of the Hallmark Press Pause Panel.
The Rockin' Talking Santa Hat is super fun, not only does it sing Santa Clause is Coming to Town it dances back and forth all on its own. The hat has a full frame on the inside so its a little heavy and won't fit a toddlers head, though they might just dance along.
And where there's dancing, there's often singing and the Merry-okee microphone transforms you into an elf with the push of the button. I love the elf voice, but neither the boy or the hubs seems to get quite as much joy from it as I do. Merry-okee comes with six pre-recorded holiday songs to sing along with, including 'silly versions'.
This is our first year with a full-size tree, so we can finally really start amassing our own family collection of ornaments. The Wayne Gretsky Ornament is perfect for Hockey Loving Canadian dads; the hubs is getting one this year.
Have an early reader in the house? Jingle the Husky Pup Interactive Storybook and Story Buddy are super fun, read your child the story and as you read along jingle will jump right in and bark, whimper and sing. The best part? I was at Wal-Mart yesterday and saw Jingle in store.
Hallmark has been helping us remember to 'Press Pause' because Life is a Special Occasion all year long, and now they want to help us celebrate Christmas. What are you doing to 'Press Pause' this holiday season?
I received Hallmark product for the purposes of this post, however all opinions are my own.
