We did the videos, too, and my kids were too cute watching them. The anticipation and excitement when the elves declared them "nice" as a riot. Santa sent them each a birthday video this year, too (which I guess I must have put in their birthdates when we did the Christmas videos, because the birthday messages came automatically.



We have a key, too.

We do milk, cookies, (although sometimes Santa has requested a beer.... ), carrots, reindeer food on the lawn, have done the flour footprints. DD writes a letter to Santa every year on Christmas Eve and leaves it for him with a picture. She has done this since before she could write. I am sure we do more....

I have a Santa question, but will start yet another Santa thread...
Gotta love the big jolly guy.

I'm really debating whether to do the elf of the shelf.
