Let Kids Open Stockings Before Waking You Up

When my boys were small, sometimes it was tough to get up quite as early as they wanted to on Christmas day. I came up with an idea that made us all happy! After they were asleep on Christmas Eve, I would leave their Christmas stockings on their bed. I always made sure to include some small toys to keep them busy. The boys got to play with gifts from Santa, while I got a bit more shut-eye. It has become a tradition with my grandchildren now!

I couldn't bear to miss it when my kids were small.

Sounds good, but I have to take pictures while they dig into their stocking!

Our kids always came and jumped on our bed to wake us on Christmas morning. We always went together as a family to see what Santa left. After we opened stockings and gifts, and all morning pictures were takin, mommy and daddy got to take a nap while the kids played happy.
