Last night, before bed, four little pairs of boots were lined up near our front door. Ben insisted on leaving out their boots instead of their shoes (and he un-did the straps on his) to really maximize their loot potential!
This morning, after waking at 5:45a.m., the kids found their boots filled with 3 pieces of chocolate, 2 candy canes, and some new pj's. Bree and Betsy got new binkies instead of candy. Ben and Maggie each got a book too. Ben's contained a kit for a little paper Christmas tree. He had the entire thing assembled before breakfast.
