So our twins are going to be 4 a few days after Christmas and I feel like this year is the first year they've really been into (and understand) this whole Santa thing. When we went to Santa's Village, they weren't scared to sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas, they've LOVED decorating the tree, and you can just tell they're leaps and bounds ahead of where we were last year.
Speaking of last year, I was seriously able to have a box sitting out by the laundry area and they never thought twice to a) look at it closer or b) figure out it was a Santa gift. This year, however, is quite different and they've already found what were supposed to be Christmas gifts. I blame that on my husband and his tall genes all 3 of the girls seem to have inherited. Serious #momfail when they found the princess barbies.
Back to Santa. What I'm excited about this year, is being able to show them where Santa is on Christmas Eve - part of me is hoping this will help them go to sleep earlier than normal, but I'm pretty sure that's not happening. I have family and friends who have tracked Santa, but I've never really thought about how they do it. Enter Parents Magazine. They've shared 4 super fun ways to share the magic of the season with your littles.
