Santa takes the biggest gift and sets it up just so. Last year it was a Dora the Explorer kitchen with the food laid out. This year it will be a Dora the Explorer dollhouse with the furniture and figures ready and waiting.
One of the best moments of parenthood so far was when my daughter, who was three last Christmas, came into our bedroom, woke Dad and me up, saying, "He really came! Santa really came!" It was magic. I want some more of that candy, yum!
