Family Google Hangouts

Do you ever set up Google hangouts with your family? It's something that my family seems to do a lot, especially during the winter months. One of us sends an email to set up a chat (usually my cousin Mark or aunt Diane) and then whoever is available—and near a computer—logs in to join. Within minutes, it's like we're all in the same room together, laughing and talking away. 

The funny part is that you'd think it would be really tough to coordinate a spontaneous meetup like that. More often that not, the last minuteness makes it work, and at least a handful of us are able to make the video call. My cousins' kids (and babies!) even get in on the action. :)

What's your favorite way to keep in touch with family that lives far away?
