Send a Personalized Video Message from Santa

Disclosure: I received complementary Portable North Pole products in exchange for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I was so excited about checking out the Portable North Pole. I knew it would be a HUGE hit with my kiddos!  We did the personalized video from Santa. It was so special for Maci to see Santa address HER directly and to have a photo of her!

For FREE, you can get a personalized video from Santa Claus, filled with magic! Maci LOVED this and felt it was very magical. She especially loved hearing Santa say her name!

You can also choose The Personalized Premium Video package, which features a personal message from Santa with exclusive video sequences, a personalized Christmas carol with your child or children’s names, photos of your children and a several surprises from Santa and his helpers!

You can also set up to receive an email with instructions to set up a personalized Phone Call from Santa! Santa has a very important message and he will pick up the phone and call directly to deliver his greeting, which runs about two minutes – personalized messages can include a night-before-Christmas wish or even a gentle warning to stay off the naughty list!

Some other options include:

  • Portable North Pole’s Downloadable Santa’s Premium Video, $6.99
  • Portable North Pole’s Santa’s Phone Call, Retail $3.99 for one call or $6.99 for three calls

As an added bonus 5% off your purchase at the Portable North Pole goes directly to Children’s Hospitals. I love paying it forward.

Enjoy the Dallas Galleria at Christmas

If you are looking for a mall that has a ton to offer and will bring Christmas cheer to your family, then you need to head to the Dallas Galleria! From Ice Skating, circus fun, pictures with Santa and more, there is SO much to do!

We went last weekend to check it out! The line to see Santa was fun… we actually were a little sad that it moved so quickly. There are several interactive displays for your kids to enjoy while they wait! Santa is wonderful and very welcoming. You can purchase photos easily from a kiosk following your time with Santa.

I love that they also do SANTA CARES. This year it will be on Sunday, Dec. 8: 9–11 AM
Children with special needs and their families are invited to a private photo session with Santa in an environment that supports the sensory, physical and other developmental needs of kids.

The kids play area is fun filled of course, and they also have Slappy’s Holiday Circus that performs as well.  We got to meet the clowns and they were FUNNY! You can watch them on Friday, Nov. 29 & Saturdays, Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 & 21: 1 PM & 3 PM!

For another magical tradition, check out Macy’s Grand Tree Lighting Celebration! We got to see the tree “dance” to the music and it was incredible! The tree is the tallest indoor tree in the US currently. The star is over 10 ft tall. It’s an incredible sight to see! This will take place Friday, Nov. 29–Tuesday, Dec. 24, Daily: noon, 2 PM, 4 PM, 6 PM and 8 PM

Check out the awesome events around the tree:
Friday, Nov. 29: 12 PM | World Champion Kurt Browning and National Champions Kim Navarro & Brent Bommentre
Saturday, Nov. 30: 6 PM | World Champion Kurt Browning and National Champions Kim Navarro & Brent Bommentre
Saturday, Dec. 7: 6 PM | National Champion Ryan Bradley
Saturday, Dec. 14: 6 PM | U.S. Junior Men’s Champion Keegan Messing
Saturday, Dec. 21: 6 PM | Olympic Gold Medalist Sarah Hughes


Your whole family can ice skate around the tree. It’s beautiful and sure to wear you out! We went yesterday and had so much fun!

There are so many stores with awesome deals right now! I got to check out the newly renovated Children’s Place. It’s feel so big and well lit. I loved how organized it was. I took my kids in with me and they quickly picked out a ton of tops and leggings! The long sleeve graphic tees were only $5 each! Great price! They have such adorable holiday coordinating outfits for both boys and girls!

Of course, the American Girl store is in The Galleria… and they have a TON of holiday events going on.

*My family was provided with a fun VIP experience at The Galleria to check out all of the Holiday fun. All opinions are my own and are honest.
