The grandkids excitedly anticipated the wonders of Christmas and informed us they could watch Santa's progress by satellite. Simply check into the Norad site and follow on the map as Santa made his way across the world to the United States.
So while I enjoyed a cup of tea, we watched Santa's progress. This also is a fascinating way for youngsters to learn geography and facts about different countries.
They finally gave up and went to bed as Santa headed toward South America. He has a few hours yet to reach our country.
This was a different type of "party," but a fun one as we finished wrapping gifts, enjoyed special finger foods, and watched for Santa.
Have you ever watched Santa via satellite? What will they think of next!
