When my husband and I had our son, we started the Santa tradition. We went so far as to buy different wrapping paper for the Santa presents and dispose of all evidence that we were the ones. Then there was a horrible mistake 2 years ago. We had purchased him a fooze ball table and because it was like in a hundred pieces we decided to put it together on Christmas eve. My husband and I were busy putting it together (at about 1 in the am) when he came down stairs and opened the door to our room where we where putting it together.
That is so funny, my dad did something like that to me.
We use to go to my great grandmas every christmas eve. My mom and dad had this thing down GOOD, i mean GOOD. My moms parents were there so they couldnt be the ones to do it or my moms sisters and my dad didnt have siblings. When we left there we went to my dads parents, because they gave us a present on Christmas eve, so it couldn't be them. So the kids at school would try to convince me diff. but I would tell them my story and they would be like OH:eyepoppin Well I asked for a basketball goal one year and this was like when I was 10 or 11. I was laying in my bed (and my bed could see right in the livingroom from the doorway). I heard this clanking and banging, I'm like woo hoo a basketball goal, but then I was like Oh NO, Santa's in my house:holiday05 . All I could see was a shadow on the wall from the Christmas tree lights:holiday07 . I about freaked out, I was more scared than anything. I told my mom about it the next morning and she was like OH, mayb Santa needs to be quiet next time and sort of looked at my dad. I think I finally figured it out:gdbusted: , but played along for little bro.
Now I have DD3 and DS1 so it is fun for me again. I use the diff. wrapping paper:holiday02 . I try to get the licensed ones, cause my daughter loves characters, had tweety last year, got mickey mouse at christmas sale 06-07 on sale for this year. I even use diff. name tags, I try to get ones w/ santa on them, I'm thinking bout getting personalized ones made and have them already have from: Santa Claus on them. Gonna give half to my sister for her girls, that way as they get older and share story/gifts, they wont get curious, lol. I like to them stay little and imaginative, as I was.
