I'm a big fan of this breakdown on Santa. I appreciated the idea behind Santa as a child, but this letter from a child's parents just smashes the nail on the head for me. I dislike the idea of "robbing" the magic of Christmas from my children with "the truth", but with a message like this I don't feel as though I have to anymore. Awesome.
I love a Christmas stocking - there are some awesome ideas for gifts for the whole family. We certainly a few stocking fillers of our own including cute historic handmade costumes for the dolls and their pets.
