Oh, Hallmark- how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... I love your thoughtful greeting cards and gifts for special occasions and holidays. I especially love thee at Christmastime, when the birth of Jesus draws nigh. You give us reminders of that first starry night, you fill our homes with love and laughter, and bring our children delight! Each new season, you deliver a special surprise- to help us make memories that will stay with us for life.
Okay, I admit, I am not much of a poet, but I really do feel this way about Hallmark and their wonderful products, especially this time of year! We've already shared Hallmark's gorgous and fun collection of 2014 Keepsake Ornaments, and now we're delighted to bring you even more holiday fun from our friends at Love Hallmark!
My little helper couldn't wait to find out what kind of holiday fun we received from our friends at Hallmark! The bubble wrap was especially fun to pop!
Wow- we received Dance Like and Elf, and Find Me, Santa- from Hallmark's Northpole Collection!
Check out this fun Northpole website!
Before we opened up our special Northpole Collection goodies from Hallmark, we went online to see a special Northpole video from Hallmark. You can check out all of the Northpole fun by visiting northpole1820.com. We have been having lots of fun reading Northpole stories, and learning about Snow Row, Magic Point and Old Town!
We were absolutely thrilled to receive this adorable Dance Like an Elf holiday gift from Hallmark!
B is ready to get his Elf on and bust some holiday dance moves!
Forget the ‘Roger Rabbit’ or ‘Running Man’ — bust a move with new elf dances, such as ‘Stir the Cocoa’ or ‘Wrap the Presents!’ This is a perfect activity for kids, the entire family or holiday parties. The Dance Like an Elf product is super fun for the whole family! There is a fun demo mode, which introduces you to the elves. When you're ready to try out your family dance moves, set the volume to high or low (the low is actually pretty loud), and press the big blue Let's Dance button! Before you know it, you'll be hearing fun holiday music, and Santa's elves will be calling out hilarious and fun dance moves, like 'have a snowball fight,' 'march in the Christmas parade and wave to the crowd,' 'do the Santa Shuffle,' 'shale the presents- but don't break them,' 'put the presents under the tree,' 'ski down the ski slopes,' etc. Each round offers new music and new dance moves to try out!
I have to say, dancing along with the Dance Like an Elf music maker is so much fun! B and I have been dancing up a storm since we received this just a few days ago. It gives us a fun break from doing chores or homework, and gives us plenty of indoor exercise. We've even been able to get daddy, grandma, grammy and papa involved in the holiday dancing fun!
Check out our dance moves!

To add to our holiday fun, and the Northpole experience, Hallmark sent us the Find Me Santa Snowflake!
This beautifully designed plastic snowflake is ready to hang in your home!
The snowflake includes a blank sticker in the middle, so you can write your family's name or child's name on the snowflake. The snowflake includes one extra sticker, in case you need to make a change. Press the snowflake to light it up, and watch it change colors! You can hang it on the tree as an ornament, in the window, or in the house as a decoration. The snowflake lights up to help Santa find his way to your home on Christmas Eve!
Watch the snowflake light up and change colors- from blue to pink, green, and purple!
B loves this beautiful snowflake, and feels special knowing that it will help Santa find our house on Christmas Eve. He's been having a lot of fun practicing lighting up the snowflake, so that when Christmas Eve rolls around, he'll be ready to go! This is a special new tradition for us, which I'm sure we'll look forward to year after year!
