He sees you when you’re sleeping…

Santa has long been one my very favorite things about the holidays, and sharing this tradition with my kids has been incredibly enjoyable.

When I was a kid, I vividly recall my mom telling me she spied Santa checking up on me–it was July, and he was peeking around the big red barn as she mowed the lawn. Then, close to Christmas one year, I found sleighbells in my stuffed animals: Mom supposed Santa dropped them while looking in on me one night.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Ava and Olivia found bells in their beds one morning in November–undoubtedly dropped from Santa’s accoutrement as he peered over them as they slept.

    That’s really sweet, Rebecca! I love that idea, and I’m sure it is just thrilling to the girls!
