Q & A with Renae

"My son is having the same issue but he is only 3 1/2 years old. He has been potty trained for almost a year and has never had an accident. Well, we brought our baby girl home in Feb. and that's when it started. We understand why he is having them but it is becoming very frustrating. We have been patient and have started to remind him to go potty....

When Your Big Kid has a Potty Accident

The other day, my 5 year old daughter, Shari did something she hasn't done in well over two years. She wet her pants. While it really surprised me, I knew that it was important to handle it delicately. She is at a point now that things like this have the real potential to shame and embarrass her.

Easter Egg Bingo!

This year, Easter falls on April 20. I love Easter! It's one of my favorite holidays. There's so much fun stuff to do and egg hunts are just a small part of it all. Those cheap plastic eggs have other uses too. For instance, you can use them to play Easter Egg Bingo.

Losing Weight When you have a Sweet Tooth

Well, three months after New Years Resolutions have been made, I'm betting that I'm not the only one who has been struggling with their 'losing weight/getting healthier' goal. I think the hardest part of any diet is just getting started.

Taco Chop

I feel like it's been a really long time since I've shared a recipe with you all. The 'Taco Chop' is something that my husband came up with one day when he was playing around with making dinner. It was delicious and I knew you all would love to try something new also!

Keeping the Magic Alive with a Video of Santa!

*This is a sponsored post.
As children get older, it can be difficult getting them to engage in the Christmas spirit like they did when they were younger. For a lot of families, that means helping children believe in Santa just a little bit longer. In this age of information and technology, that can present a challenge, however.

In response to that, the Santa Cam FX was created. This is an app that helps you to "Prove" that Santa is real! By using video of your own home and then using the app to superimpose Santa or his elves into your video, it appears that you have been paid a visit!

The process is quite simple. First, select from three fun characters (Santa, "Elfie", or the "Fun Elves"). Next, film your set. You can choose anything, from your rooftop (Santa can fly by with his reindeer) or your Christmas tree, jazz up your 'Elf on the Shelf' shenanigans, or anything else you can imagine! Lastly, just wait a few moments and your video will be created.

I created a video with "Elfie" that took less than 5 minutes - and it was FREE too! There are 16 free Elfie videos and 2 free Tooth-fairy videos. For Santa and his elves, there is a $10 charge, but if it restores your child's faith, it is a small price to pay!

One feature of the app that really impressed me is that the app is password protected. So, for those of you who let your children play with your device, there is no worry that they will stumble upon your secret!

Santa FX is available for download on any Apple or Android device.


  1. This is an interesting concept. It is amazing what technology has brought us these past decades.

  2. It is so crazy what you can do nowadays. I have two young boys (3 years and 20 months) and, to be honest, they would probably get freaked out actually seeing Santa in their home since they are terrified of him. However, next year I'm sure my 3 year old would love it. I will need to bookmark it! Thank you!

  3. wow,,that is awesome,my grandkids would love that

  4. Cute idea and very realistic. I've recently learned about the capture santa photos but didn't realize they had videos, too. What a great way to really bring it home and excite kids.
