Trick or Treat Online and then Save the Memories

October 31, 2011 - 0 Comments

When I told my daughter that her gramma was going to be with her other (younger) grandchild this year for Halloween, I did not expect her reaction. She’s 12 and has had gramma with her every year since birth and I figured she knew she would eventually have to share.

But that was not my kid’s idea. She was downright pissed!

“She needs to see me in my costume! It’s tradition!” she told me. Oops. Apparently we have a tradition that I just took for granted all these years.

But then I suggested we have a little fun and get to share the holiday with her cousin as well. We could do a WebEx, show my mom my daughter’s costume and see our little three year old firefighter in his outfit. “I guess that’ll work,” she conceded. And off we went. We did a test drive on Sunday.

We fired up the WebEx, turned on the webcams and the kids had a ball. Everyone get to see each other, there was lots of conversation and excitement and gramma got to see my daughter all dressed up. I recorded the session – thank goodness because it was just too cute – and now I have something I can look at when I am gramma’s age.

You can use the WebEx Free Trial at no charge if you want to give it a try. It’s a lot of fun and being able to record the session makes it extra special for Halloween. And this isn’t limited to grandparents and grandkids – share a WebEx with anyone you care about!

And have a safe and fun Halloween. From all of us at WebEx – Happy Halloween!
