NORAD Santa Tracker!

Do you know what Santa is doing right now? We at Modern mommy Reviews do.....
Do you know how much time is left before Santa comes? 
There are exactly: 4 Days, 3 Hours, 9 minutes and 16 seconds (and counting)!
I have been tracking Santa since Princess was about 2 years old. She loves it! We have all sorts of traditions, including feeding the reindeer, baking all sorts of goodies and (of course) tracking Santa!
This year, on NORAD's Santa site, you can play games, watch video of Santa's 2010 run and track Good St. Nick using Google Earth. 
Want to know how fast Santa's sleigh is? Are your kids into facts? (Princess is certainly all about them).
Here are some cool facts from NORAD, all about Santa's sleigh...
