I Caught Santa {BIG Christmas GIVEAWAY!}

*Updated* Congrats to the following winners: I am not your mother , Bubba's Sis, The Eck LifeFried Okra and There Must be More to Life than Laundry and Dishes!  Please email me and I'll tell you what to do!

We believe in Santa around here.  

My nearly 9 year old has asked some pointed questions this year and while we haven't directly misled her, we've told her to follow her heart.

She wants to believe.

And I think believing is good.

Look who came to our house a little early this year.....

Um, yes, that is SANTA sneaking around my house!


My hubby spotted a billboard on the way to work that read, "I Caught Santa!"

He told me about this great site that puts the seeing in the believing.

The good people at I Caught Santa want you to visit their site and imagine Santa in your living room.  FIVE people will randomly be chosen to receive a personalized photo of Santa in their house! You can read the details here.

It's so realistic, I think it might be real.

That's because I still believe.

Leave a comment, five winners will be announced on Saturday morning. You better get that photo of your living room ready ($17.95 value, expires Jan.5).

Love IT!!

Tammy said...

Now THIS is fun! My daddy used to dress up like Santa on Christmas Eve when I was very young, and we actually have some photos. Somewhere!

My 9 year old is a FIRM believer; however, his little sister has asked just about one too many questions!

I believe!

Liz said...

oh, oh! Pick me! :)

Amy said...

This is great!!! I think we have another year or two so this would be so fun!!!!

Thanks for the great contest.

Kerri said...

fun!! Wonder if my puppies will bark at him? :)

Ashley @ mrs007.com said...

This year our 7 year old is more excited than ever. I think she really wants to believe and Santa emailed us a couple days ago, so that was fun!

This would be so fun to do and maybe it would provide a couple more years of magic :)

aggiemomof2 said...

Hopefully we still have a few years of believing--would love to have the picture to back things up!

Bubba's Sis said...

I love this! This year my 11-year-old and 14-year-old just rolled their eyes at me when I talked about Santa. They'd get a kick out of this!

Courtney said...

Kathy Eller said...

This is a GREAT giveaway!

We never taught our kids about Santa. BUt, my daughter met him and aksed for a doll and got one. SO he MUST be real. no matter what we tell her. he IS real. This would be so fun for her.

stacywhite said...

I still believe.

Kimba said...

What a sweet idea! I love it!

Nancy M. said...

I still believe too!

beckyjomama said...

How stinking cool is that?!?!?! I want one :)

milissa said...

Oh I still believe in Santa too. When I was of the age where I started to question, my father gently responded with "Well, if you stop believing in Santa, he will stop believing in you." So every year I remind my father I still believe in Santa...I live 10 hours away from my family and somehow Santa still manages to leave me a little something every year. It's magic and it's fantastic. :)

Nikie said...

I don not know who would love it more the kids or my husband!

OK strange... I was JUST at that site not 2 mins ago, lol. What a great idea this site has! I was playing around with pictures from last year, lol.

marky said...

Wow that really looks real! Very clever idea!

Jenn said...

That is SO fun! OMG! I didn't even know a service like this existed! My kids would FUH-REAK (that's right...not just FREAK but FUH-REAK!) LOL!

lwarta@yahoo.com said...

That is so cool! I still believe in Santa.

Jessica said...

I believe!!!!!!!!!

Carolina Mama said...

We believe! One thing one of the Tigers has noticed that Santa in Florida is different than our Santa. :)

Trista said...

My 9 year old is on to me....she has older cousins that are putting ideas into her head that Santa isn't real!!!! What?!! I really need this to keep the magic.

T with Honey said...

I first saw one of these yesterday and thought that they are so cute. Isn't it great what we can do today with photo editing tools? I'd make my own but then I'd need a picture of Santa.

Amanda said...

I saw that billboard the other day too and thought what a great idea!! ooooo I hope I win!!

R.L.Scovens said...

What an adorable prize!!

lindabelle said...

Oh My How Fun!

The Source said...

Oh my! My fifth graders were TORTURED by their classmates this year because they still believe. They WANT to believe so badly, but of course they're questioning the whole thing daily. This is perfect!

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

My 9yo daughter SO wants to believe. But her brother already doesn't. And her little sister is listening intently to all the debate. I suspect the magic is almost over... Maybe the pic would extend it a little. :)

Jerri Ann said...

This is too cool. Last year I waited til all the gits were under the tree and then I took a photo of our tree and then found a photo of santa and photoshopped santa looking in our front door

Patois said...

That looks very cool. Off to visit.

iMommy said...

That is seriously awesome.

franticallysimple said...

But he is real, isn't he?

The Wade's said...

Sounds great! Thanks!

Cheryl said...

That is so cool!

Harmony said...

That is really neat! They do a good job, it does look real!

Karen said...

What a priceless idea! I wish it had been available when my children were little. If I lived near my grandchildren I could do it for them, though!

Shana said...

How fun is this! I would love to have one of these to share with the boys! :o) Merry Christmas!!!

Jenny in Utah said...

I'm still working hard to keep them believing - gets harder each year - what a GREAT idea!

Beverly said...

I did it on another site for a bit less so I am ready for G to see her living room with Santa in it for real!! Good luck to whomever wins!

Heather said...

How cool!

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...
