So here is the story....every year me and the DH take the 3 kids on vacation at X-mas time. For the last few years, I have hauled all the gifts with me in a suitcase or two, put them under whatever available foliage is in the hotel room for x-mas morning...because, "Santa can find us anywhere!" Well, the dilemna this year is there is too much crap to take with us!!! All gifts have ALWAYS been from Santa, my DH and I do not give gifts as far as the kids are concerned, so should we tell the kids this year that there are gifts from us that they can open either early or late, and then just take a few choice items on the trip??? But then how do we explain that Santa is only bringing a few things as opposed to the huge haul in years prior??? The kids are 9,7, and 4...so I am afraid that this will be the big tipoff that Santa is really us (although I suspect the 9-year old already knows). What to do????
