How do YOU deliver them? Or should I say, how does SANTA deliver them at your house?
Our kids have Santa Sacks. They have kind of become family heirloooms. Chestnut Cheeks' used to be his Dad's and before that it was his mum's.
Almond Eyes' used to be mine. That's as far back as it goes so far...
Last year I was worried that CC's sack would rip if I tried to stuff all the gifts into it so with permission from my mother in law I got creative. I cut out the picture on the sack & sewed it onto a bigger stronger sack, then embroided her name & birth year, Swift Jim's name & birth year and CC's name & birth year all on the back. There is plenty of room for more names.
I also did the same with AE's, except there is only two names on it so far :D
Do you wrap the gifts that go in the sack/stocking?
When I was growing up my Mum didn't wrap them. They just went in unwrapped, but SJ's mum did wrap them. I decided to wrap our kids. More fun that way...
For the first couple of years I used to wrap them in santa-y type paper. But you can never get the same each year. Then last year I read somewhere a GREAT idea...
Now I wrap the Santa gifts in brown paper. It's easy to find & it can be the same every year. I wanted to get a stamp made up this year with the children's name to stamp onto each gift, but alas didn't think of it again until it was too late.
So I decided to print them up on the computer this year with the intention to aim for the stamp next year before CC gets too much older to remember the inconsistancy there...
I have run out of ink! D'OH!!!!! I may just have to get the old calligraphy pen out. It's been a while!
Where do you put the sacks/stockings for Santa to fill?
Ours go under the tree. Growing up they went at the end of the bed, I however dont want to run the risk of getting caught, so they have always been put under the christmas tree here.
Two sleeps til christmas! Please share your traditions with me :D
