    I can’t help but think of the “National Lampoon Christmas Vacation” movie when the family is singing in the car. They look so happy and sound lovely. My kids on the other hand are not so lovely because the only know how to scream the lyrics and I’m not sure where they learned to “sing” like that. Still, their iPhone is like a life saver for me now since we got a DISH Network Sling Adapter free with our new service. Now that I work at DISH my wife is asking me what I can get for free when customers get stuff for free all the time anyway. I hope this app has a free trial and I will try it just for that reason.

    A great app to play with the kids is 'Ultimate Christmas Trivia' http://itunes.apple.com/us/app… It's a fun quiz with animations that my kids love. Some of the questions are tough for my youngest (5 years old) but she can get most of them. They love it.

    Love the list. We also love Rudolph Knows – a Christmas app where they can check if they are on Santa's list. I can determine the outcome and the message back from Santa. It's very funny to watch their faces as Santa seems to know everything.

    This is a great little list. My kids love the new Sing and Play Jingle Bells app. You can sing and play along with the “Jingle Bells” song and it's really enjoyable.
