Over the course of 3 days, the Fosters shot 6000 photos, animated 200 cotton balls, 72 candy canes, one LARGE bag of skittles and 5 paper cacti all in the name of making the greatest Christmas video greeting ever — no really ever. Check out the full video after the jump, it will make you smile and then want to dress up your kids!

We ran across this crazy fun, family video over at Design Mom and have officially watched it 4 times in a row. That probably puts us into stalker territory, but we're fascinated by all the hours of work that went into its making. Just the idea of getting your kids to wear the same clothes for 3 days straight and making candy canes dance across your dining room is enough to enthrall anyone.

Check out a few behind the scenes shots of the Foster family which give us a little hope that maybe we could make something like this for our own family. It looks so professional on screen, but behind the scenes you see furniture pushed out of the way and a tripod on the kitchen counter! Check out the video and more on their past holiday greetings over at Melancholy Smile.
