Santa Tracker

Anticipation. Tonight, children around the world will go to sleep, dreaming of a jolly man dressed in red sneaking into their house and leaving wonders beyond their wildest dreams for their discovery in the morning.

Growing up, every Christmas Eve we would go to Mack and Anna's house. We would partake a meal with relatives and friends. My mom would take marinated brussel sprouts, which is a taste I never acquired. A highlight of the night was talking to Santa on Mack's ham radio, because Santa'a sleigh was obviously not equipped with technology of the modern age.

Technology seems to have caught up as Google is teaming up with Norad so you can track Santa in his journey around the globe. Their site http://www.noradsanta.org/ will go live at 6 pm EST, with Santa's location on a Google map. You can even receive updates on Twitter by adding @noradsanta.

So have a little fun with the kids, maybe it will get them to bed a little earlier and allow some extra time with Mrs. Claus. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

I get to spend the day with my little one and I know that she will be excited - filled with anticipation. She never has any idea what Santa or Daddy will bring her. Then, she has her birthday next week and more excitement will ensue. Blessings to you.

Brussel Sprouts will be in the refrigerator when you get to the house.

I plan on shooting a flare at him when he passes overhead 2nite. Maybe I'll end up in a twitter update, after possibly blinding a reindeer.
