My father-in-law must have used a whole roll of tape on the next gift! LOL. I told my husband that that wasn't necessary. I said, "If you extract a promise from me, I won't peek!" I'm always true to my word. Eventually, I just stopped peeking.
    A co-worker and I were just discussing yesterday how she use to do the same thing; cut the tape with scissors and then tape the gifts back up. Too funny!

    When I was 8 my oldest brother tried to convince me that Santa was really just Mom and Dad by bringing me into their bedroom and showing me all the gifts, wrapped and ready to be put under the tree for Christmas a few days later....

    I wrote a letter to Santa telling him what my brother showed me. I also thanked him for being so generous for sending the gifts to my parents early that year. I knew how busy he must get on Christmas Eve, so it only made sense that he would send out some kids' gifts to their parents in order to keep things efficient....

    Yeah, so it turns out that Jed (my brother) was dead wrong... Our parents weren't Santa, but actually, they're his helpers. And now that I'm moved out, I'll soon be training to be his helper too! I'm so excited!

    I still wave to Santa when I see him and smile in the mall.

    He always waves back
