SKYPE is Awesome!

Okay, so today is Thanksgiving and unfortunately I wasn't able to spend it with my parents, grandparents or aunts and uncles and cousins. Well, thanks to technology I was able to SEE them all in the same conversation! We had Philly, St. Pete & Dover Florida, and Michigan all in one screen :) It was a little noisy...but so nice to see everyone together even if it was on a screen. Here's a pic of our family conference call using FREE Skype! I remember the days when I was younger and we only talked to them on special occasions because it was long distance. It was "hurry up honey, that's long distance" so we wouldn't be charged. Now, the world is a much smaller place with things like Skype. My parents got to watch their granddaughter play and show off AND hear her...sooo amazing! What a blessing when you live 18 1/2 hours from your folk....Thankful today for not only my amazing family and friends but for technology which I LOVE to HATE...
Happy Thanksgiving, Ya'll!


  1. I agree it WAS totally awesome to have everyone on the same screen at once! The SYKPE is Free, and this conference call was a free trial--but after that it is $4.95 a month--which is still outstanding if you use it alot! It was such a blessing to see the family all at once come up to the screen and say "hey". We set it up and just let it roll as everyone went about their business--too cool. Love to all my family!

  2. Skype is WONDERFUL! My parents moved away from our area 3 years ago. The boys had a tough time with it, but Skype helped us keep in touch.

  3. It's really a great and useful piece of info. I am happy that you just shared
