    LOL…this is why, even now that my children are older, the presents stay hidden until Christmas morning.

      I’ve thought seriously about doing that, but the tree looks so PRETTY with presents underneath it– especially this year– the presents hide the fact that our tree is a bit…. crooked!

  3. oh. my. gosh. this is HILARIOUS!!! Yes, your hands are gonna be very full.

    This. Is. Awesome. That is sooooo priceless! It’s like I say about my boy, “It’s either gonna be a Nobel Prize, or maximum security prison.”

    Empty boxes wrapped under the tree work well too..except it drives the kiddos nuts when they do the “shake and break” test and NOTHING rattles :). My kids are 15, 13, 11 and 10 and there’s not a snowball’s chance I’d risk putting all their gifts out before Christmas morning. They still sneak a peek.

      One of Punky’s best friends keeps INSISTING that Santa isn’t real and that he’s actually your parents, despite many conversations between this girl and her mother to not share her knowledge with others. 🙂 Punky is “very upset with her.” I’m just glad she doesn’t believe her!

    What kind of a deal do you all have with Santa to get your gifts under the tree so early? Santa doesn’t hit our house until Christmas eve!

      Our kids only ask Santa for a couple of things and he brings those on Christmas morning. The wrapped presents are from us, grandparents and siblings. 🙂 SANTA CAN ONLY CARRY SO MUCH! LOL.

    My 4 year old has explanations JUST like that for his actions.

    My little brother was the same way when we growing up.  I remember getting SO MAD at him for telling people what we got them for Christmas!  lol

  9. Hahahaha. No, I’m pretty sure that’s theologically sound. Devil world. God world. Yep. Leviticus says so or something.

    I love how Punky tries to call him on it!

    heart full too. . .

    I think  my 4 year old comes from that devil planet. . .

    Devil Land and God Land (with sand!) – I love it!

    We don’t put ANY presents for any of the three of us out before Christmas.  I have everything in bags and I bring them downstairs after everyone has gone to bed (usually around 11).  My husband has the nasty habit of seeing a wrapped present and trying to guess what it is.  I don’t even want to TOUCH any of mine until I can open them (I hate spoiling a surprise for me!).

  13. Angie says:

    That was hilarious!

    We’re familiar with that devil. lol

    Love it. We don’t put our presents out until the kids are asleep on Christmas Eve because of this.  Unfortunately, I left a couple of their presents out in plain sight (genius move on my part) so my oldest, 7, knows what she is getting. I could kick myself for that.

    As for blabbing about gifts, just last night, we had a going away party for my 21 y/o niece – she is moving out on her own so we bought her some pretty dishes and a coffee maker.  I gave one of my 3 y/os the wrapped coffee maker and told her, “give this to J and say Congratulations”. She walked up to her cousin, handed her the gift and said, “Here J, it’s a coffee maker for you”.  Gotta love it!

    This was so much fun to watch. I never keep the sound turned on on my computer while I’m working, but I turned it on just for this and it was SO worth it.
    But to add a serious note – when he said the ‘sand’ comment, it immediately made me think of those pictures from the beach you posted this summer. I wonder if he sees that environment as being as perfect as one can be, and envisions that as what it is like where God lives (which he calls “God Planet” but I think he means ‘heaven.’) That’s what struck me, anyway.

    Now THAT is future girlfriend fodder. 🙂

    Poor Bruiser is possessed!  That naughty devil making him peek 2 times.  This is the first year my kids are both fully aware of no santa (at 9 and 12 it was time) and we already put up our tree (Santa used to bring it with ALL the presents on Christmas Eve) and I was hoping for a leisurely December with presents under the tree. Turns out both my kids are peepers and surprise ruiners!  Now I am hiding their gifts at a neighbor’s house.  And I got coal shaped chocolate for their stockings!

    Hands full indeed! But, maybe he’ll get all that stuff out of his system now and his teenage years will be a breeze.

  20. Jennifer L says:

    Oy! That reminds me of a Christmas Eve morning, two years ago. My son (just a year or so older than Bruiser) climbed up on a rickety step stool to fetch wrapped presents from the top of the VERY TALL armoire in my room so he could carry them to his room, close the door and surreptitiously unwrap them. I don’t think he thought out the rest of the plan, since I obviously discovered a mess of torn wrapping paper and the gifts themselves on the floor of his room!

    I finally got around to watching the video and all I can say is ADORABLE…..and you DO have your hands full! 🙂

  22. […] Then there was Christmas, when I caught you peeping at unwrapped presents. It wasn’t your fault, though!  The devil made you do it. […]
