to present or not to present
In my family, we never put any presents under the tree until Santa put them ALL under the tree on Christmas Eve. I think this was because Mimi has an amazing village (called a Putz) that takes up about 6 feet. Currently, it's placed on the mantel - out of reach of curious little hands.
It was pretty thrilling to come out Christmas morning and see a SEA of presents covering the ground in all directions.
Jon thinks our tree looks sad and lonely without any presents underneath it, but I can only imagine how many times Jackson would be asking to open things. And Cade wouldn't even ask, he would just go for it.
What do you think? Presents under the tree or is that too much of a temptation for a 3 and a 1 year old?
PS Did you see the title of this post? To present or not to present. Get it? Because presence is another word for being. A ha!
