Ever see Santa deliver Christmas presents????

by Knoxena on December 18, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When you were a kid, did you were see Santa on Christmas eve putting presents under the tree or him come to your house? My kids couldn't figure out who it was that came to our house one year. They tried for years to guess who the Santa was. It wasn't until they had kids of their own that they were told who that Santa was.
