Well, we did it. We were able to have two sets of Grandparents and two and a half sets of Aunts and Uncles in our living room on Christmas morning via Tokbox. There was a little difficulty for one of the Uncles, but I am pretty sure that it was due to his understanding (or slight lack of) of the technology. (Sorry Tim!) Another difficulty we had was with sound. Those on the other end had a hard time with the sound. This could have been solved probably by having the visitors mute their own sound on their computers or having them use earphones instead of speakers. But overall, the experience was good. We got to say Merry Christmas to all of our family at one time and they all got to watch the girls devour their Christmas presents under the tree! I think everyone was pretty please in the end!
