Hi everyone. My  name is Catherine and very excited to recieve greeting cards. With my losing my job, holiday cards were not something I was going to spend money on and send out this year. One of the cards was perfect to send to my grandparents who live out of town. It has a little ornamant that they can hang on the tree. The other card was fun for my 7yo because it was a card to Santa and she got to record her wish list to santa and put it in the mail. (we sent it to my parents because this year they are Santa for my kids mostly) And the other card will be given to my kids on Christmas morning from "Santa" saying thanks for the treats they left for him.

We received the Countdown to Christmas radio ornament.  It really is neat. Even my 24 year old son said it was pretty cool. I love how it really sounds like an old time radio announcement. Thanks CafeMom and Hallmark! : )

The wonderful cm influencer program chose me to receive a free gift from Hallmark for my son. He is going to be getting the recordable book "Twas the Night Before Christmas" as his Christmas gifts he gets to open on Christmas Eve. See the little theme I planned here. Get the book on the night before Christmas and listen to it. I love this book. Its so awesome that it is so easy to do. And if it wasnt perfect sounding I could fix it. Then I can lock it so he cant delete it and theres a screw holding down a piece of plastic over the lock so he cannot get to it (fingers crossed he doesnt decided one day to figure out how to use a screw driver.). Im excited to see his face when he hears moms voice coming out of the book. I have a feeling this will be a very special Christmas.
Thanks cm! MERRY CHRISTMAS LADIES!!!

I recieved the First Christmas recoradable storybook. Instead of me reading and recording my voice, I let my DD (7)do it. She was so proud of herself and she got a kick out of hearing herself recorded. Now, she reads it nightly with my DS (4). I plan on making this book a traditon...bringing it out only during the Christmas season.

My name is Nancy.  I got the recordable stuffed animals.  They are really cute.  They are soft and huggable.  The problems I encountered were:  In order to record a message, you first have to get the animal out of the box.  That was really hard.  You had to work on it for quite a while.  Recoeding the message was easy but 30 seconds goes by pretty fast.  I had to record the message more than once to get it all in there.  My granddaughter loves it.  She hugged it over and over.  It is now in a prominent position in her bed.

We got the NorthPole Countdown Ornament. It was a total surprise when we got it because I didn't know I was accepted to do this influencer. We were really excited when we opened it and we've never seen anything like it.

I played a couple of the days just to see what is like but we are actually saving it for Dec. 1st through the Christmas Day. I think it's funny  and cute.

My daughter thinks it's COOL! She says she thinks it's cool that it's a radio forecast like news.

My son thinks it's COOL too and he likes it!

CON: It is heavy for the tree.

Thank you Hallmark and Cafemom!
