Where does She Come Up with these Things?



Every year, instead of writing real names on Christmas gifts, such as To: Shaelyn,
we assign fake names. Last year, I used, Happy, Dopey and Sleepy. This keeps the kids guessing as to which presents are theirs. This year the names are Dasher, Prancer and Cupid. I was wrapping a present the other day and brought it to Shaelyn to put under the tree. Here's the conversation:


Me: Shaelyn, You can put this present under the tree.
Shaelyn: Who's this one for?
Me: Prancer
Shaelyn: Another one for Prancer? That Prancer sure must have been a good little reindeer this year. He's getting a lot of presents.

My kids used to sit by the tree and figure out everything they were getting. One year I switched all of their names on the presents. They were totally faked out. It was so much fun!

Love your idea, too!

Okay, just for you I'm breaking my "less time on the computer" rule. Your comment was just too sweet. I hope my time off is very short lived and soon I will be back to the daily blogging world. I'm lovin' you too much to leave for too long :o)

By the way, I told this story today at our dinner table. It is just way too cute!

Also - on your Christmas vote, I chose "Decorating the house." But if the other choice had been "Eating Holiday Foods" instead of making them - I would have chosen that! :)
