icaughtsanta review and giveaway

(warning: you probably don't want your kids who believe in the magic of santa to read this post.)
tonight, after a little finagling, and a whole lot of fun, bill and i took the picture from above and turned it into this:
this picture is at walgreens, waiting to be picked up, ready for christmas day.  i'm pretty sure that tessa is getting to the age where she's fighting off the doubts about what happens on christmas eve.  this should help keep the "magic" alive for another year.  even zoe loves to have any confirmation she can that the man in red comes to visit us in the night.

do you want to "catch santa" at your house?  just go to icaughtsanta and upload a picture of your tree, your living room or even a bedroom to get started.  there are a variety of santa poses to choose from.  you can adjust the size of santa, his position, the view and size of your room, and even the brightness and color of santa.  once you have santa in the pose you want, you can download and print as many copies of your print as you like.  as an added bonus, you will receive five videos of santa with your photo as the background, showing santa in your home checking his list, getting presents out of his sack, dancing and/or winking at the "elves" who caught him in the act.

i found this website very easy to navigate, a lot of fun to play around with, and a way to give this kids a fun keepsake.  you can also catch the tooth fairy, the easter bunny and cupid in the act, if you like.  the process is a little pricey ($9.99 for one santa, $24.98 for four photos and a video) but you do get several fun keepsakes in the bargain.  you can download your photo, print as many copies as you like, share your photo on facebook or over email, and you have access to videos of santa in your home as often as you like.

go to the website and play around with it a little bit.  it really is funny to see santa doing his job in your own home.  i also have five codes to offer to you all.  just leave a comment below telling me where you would like to catch santa.  i will choose 5 (count 'em--five!) winners on december 23 so you have time to print your photo before christmas.  must be 18 years old to enter but anyone in the world can win!

edited to add: even though your chances are good for winning a free code, if you don't want to leave anything to chance, you can get half off your order by using the code SANTA50 when you checkout.

i received 6 free codes from icaughtsanta for the purpose of this review and giveaway.  regardless, the thoughts and opinions are purely my own.


  1. i want to catch santa eating the cookies by our tree- my kids are way excited for him to come-this would be so cool

  2. I was going to take a picture of the tree today and am so anxious to set this up but since I can't wait until the evening, I was thinking about taking a picture of the bathroom, to catch him coming out or closing the shades in the kitchen, and changing the light setting on my camera, to have him in the fridge, OR, even by the back door, since we don't have a chimney and told the girls that he parks the sleigh on the roof but comes through that door -
