31 Days | Up for Santa

Growing up, my brother or I would get up in the middle of the night and head to the Christmas Tree. If Santa had been and the gifts were out, we would wake up the other. At that time we would let our parents know that Santa had been to the house. They would stay in their room and sleep while we opened and played with gifts. At some point we would wander back to bed until morning.
Taft has yet to get up before us on Christmas. He will be five this year so I know that the time is coming. I have learned that everyone does this differently, but I would like to see him when he first sees his gifts.
Some parents make the kids stay in their rooms until everyone is up, and I have heard some creative ways to make sure this happens.

I have heard of people putting crape paper over the door so you can see if the came out early. Our Santa leaving the children's stockings in their rooms. They are allowed to play with that until time to get up. And also parents ringing a bell to let them know that it is time to come to the tree.

How do you do it at your house?

  1. We always spent Christmas at my grandparents, and as long as I can remember always knew it was my grandma filling up our stockings. I do remember one year sneaking out of bed to see if our stocking were full, but once we saw they were, we actually went back to bed to finish sleeping.
