We've never had a fireplace, so we usually hang our stockings on the shelves next to the Christmas tree.
This year, Santa took pity on us and brought us a fireplace of our own with a proper mantel to hang our stockings from.
When the kids went to bed earlier this evening they hung their stockings as usual and put out a plate of cookies and mug of cocoa for Santa on the shelf. But here's how it will look when they wake up in the morning!
Best. Christmas. Surprise. EVER!
I think this is the coolest thing we've ever done for Christmas. I can't wait to see the boys' faces when they wake up and realize that Santa brought them a proper place to hang their stockings while they were asleep. Christmas magic!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good-night!
