In the 7 years since my daughter was born I've never left presents under the tree from Santa. Since my husband died I just want my kids to be happy and they believe in santa no matter how many times I've told them there is no such thing as santa that its just make believe they wont believe me. My parents usually put presents under their tree from Santa so that way my kids arent sad when my niece and nephew get presents from him and my kids dont. Then they just say since they open presents there that santa probably is in such a hurry to get to all the houses that he leave presents in one place for all the kids. So this year I'm just going to put two presents from santa for each of my kids underneath our Christmas tree this year. My sons going to get a set of monster trucks and legos. My daughter is going to get a teddy bear and a book that she asked santa for. I was totally done shopping but now I have to go shopping once again.
