Probably the easiest for both of you would be for you to download Skype. Then you can video chat with other people as well. Skype is free.

AFAIK you can also use iChat, but I don't talk to anyone on iChat, so I really don't know how to set it up.

iChat will indeed allow you to video chat with each other. The iChat help files are very helpful but if you need additional assistance try http://mactips.info/2007/02/set-up-ichat. There are some links to additional information on video chats. A specific tutorial on video chats can be found at http://www.mvldesign.com/video_conference_tutorial.html

iChat is great because you can also do screen sharing with it.
