I am joining @garlandtheelf and to bring you a very special #SantaGiveaway

This is a Sponsored/Compensated Post in conjunction with and The Mom Bloggers Club, Ascending Butterfly Shares Products and Services that we feel are beneficial to our readers and all opinions are 100% my own. Logo

I hope all my butterflies had an amazing Thanksgiving! I hope this year gave you many moments of joy and amazing blessings to be grateful for.

It's been a wildly mixed year for this butterfly, I think life always brings an equal mix of highs and lows. The trick is learning to ride those lows with grace while waiting for that roller coaster to ascend again.

We are plunging right into that 'Tis The Season' Season. And with all the shopping, cooking and decorating it's super easy to get stressed out.

Tons of stuff has gone digital, and with more kids in possession of cell phones and devices these days it's no wonder that even Santa has embraced technology - just because kids have gone hi-tech doesn't mean the magic of Christmas has to get lost. The Official Site of Santa "Oh Yes I'm Real"
Kids from 0 - 120 can now amp up their holiday spirit by enjoying fun messages from Santa in the following ways:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Emails from Santa (FREE!!!) - The newly re-designed is the only site in the world that will send a detailed, thoughtful reply using the email: Personalized Texts from Santa

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Text Messages from Santa - From December 1st until Christmas Day ($9.99) - Recipient will receive daily, PERSONALIZED text messages filled with Christmas Spirit, Amusing Facts, and Positive Values. 

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Handwritten Notes from Santa - is offering a new service for sending handwritten notes from Santa! (I must admit I am stoked about this, I have had penpals since Elementary School and am happy to see the art of putting pen to paper and getting actual mail that isn't a bill isn't dying!) Personalized Text from Santa to Enzo is the oldest Santa website in existence, originally registered in 1994, it was recently acquired by start up Santa Holdings II, LLC a small, family-oriented company, comprised of four members: two parent entrepreneurs, a child educator and a software engineer. They made sure that this site is completely kid safe and focused on bringing Santa and some Holiday Magic to you and your loved ones.

I was watching a movie a few weeks ago where a little boy receives a text from Santa, and shortly after this campaign hit my inbox, coincidence?

I think this is one of the greatest ways I have seen where tech doesn't take away from the magic of being a kid but actually enhances it, and that's quite rare these days.

I have quite a few Radko Collectible Ornaments on my tree and each one has it's own memory behind it, so I thought it was actually pretty neat that a Christopher Radko Ornament is being included in this prize package.

I have more surprises up my sleeve this holiday season, so stay tuned for a few more neat giveaways that are headed your way butterflies. (And some overdue event recaps too!)
