Here is a picture of our tree!
(You can tell we are a homeschool family with of the stuff on the walls. lol)
I do a different color scheme every year.
I realized this year that I have never done just green and red!
So I decided to go all traditional Christmas colors this year.
As I bought presents I started wrapping them and putting them under the tree.
I never even thought about keeping them back until Christmas for "Santa" to bring them.
Things are a lot different in my life than they used to be. My 2 older kids obviously know Santa is not real. Brently just turned 3, so I didn't think about pretending there is a Santa.
My niece is staying with us right now though, and I have had people ask me what about Santa?
I honestly don't know if her mom has done the Santa thing or not. She has seen the presents under the tree and hasn't said anything about it, and neither has Isabell.
Isabell has mentioned that Santa is real but hasn't really said anything about him bringing presents or anything.
I have not said anything to her about Santa one way or the other, because that is not my place, but we don't do the Santa thing big time around here.
I don't have Santa decorations, or anything like that, but we do watch Santa movies.
My husband and I have not had a talk about whether or not we are doing Santa for Brently or not! It never came up and I just didn't think about it!
What do you guys do? Do you do the Santa thing, or not?
I have told Isabell and Brently why we have Christmas, and why we give each other presents. I have told them that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Do you like to see the presents under the tree in anticipation of Christmas, or have them all appear Christmas morning?
