24/31 Special Delivery

Picture the Holidays/Enchantment

When we were little kids, "Santa" would leave our stockings at the foot of our bed, so that upon awakening, we would have something to keep us occupied Christmas morning, and she would be able to catch a little more shuteye. And it worked every year. So about ten years ago, my sister and I decided to surprise "Santa" and her helper on Christmas morning. Bypassing our own stockings awaiting us outside our closed doorways, we snuck into my parents bedroom at the crack of dawn leaving two stockings chock full of goodies. Several hours later, they still hadn't come out of their bedroom, so we went to investigate. Instead of our parents, we found two little kids enchanted by their presents, playing with all the little toys we'd left. To this day, there are two Santas at my house and we outwait each other on Christmas Even to see who will make the delivery first. It's become one of our favorite rituals. This is a two-fer again today as I decided to play along with the Mortal Muses this morning while packing up our stuff to head out of town. If you're celebrating Christmas, I hope you find your stockings full of goodness tomorrow morning!
