I was thinking about our holiday traditions this morning and just had to share this amazing app with you! This is something we have done with our son Jaden for the past 5-6 years and it's our first year using it with our toddler, Cooper.

Portable North Pole is FREE (with premium options available) HERE and on your phone's App Store. This awesome piece of technology allows you to upload a photo of your child and their name into a personalized video message from Santa! It's a great way to let your kids know if they're on the nice list... or if they have a little work to do.

The finished video is so fun - seeing my kids' faces light up when Santa says their name and when they see their photo in his book is one of my favorite things about the holidays! It's one of the most realistic videos from Santa I have ever seen, too!

I have a feeling this tradition will be continuing in our family for quite some time.
