Waking Up at the Alberts on Xmas Morning
(Lake Mary, FL)
Briefly, we had a tradition of only having a few gifts under the tree during the holidays. Reason being, how can the children have gifts under the tree if Santa doesn't come until Christmas eve.
So, my husband and I would gather all of the hidden toys (from the car trunk, deep in the closet, neighbors' homes) and place them under the tree in the wee hours of the morning. So, when the children awoke, there they were--gifts that were on their Christmas list.
Of course, the video camera came out and mom would video everyone opening their gifts. The uuuhhhs and the awwwssss.
Of course Christmas morning would not be complete without a big yummy breakfast.
