A couple of years ago…instead of placing gifts under the tree for our granddaughter..

…..we decided to place them throughout the house…

……….for you see, Santa does that at Grandma and Pop’s house.

So “Santa Pop” makes clues on Christmas Eve…

…..so that “Miss Gray” can solve them and find the gifts that Santa brought.

“GRAYLYN’S STOCKING WAS HUNG IN AN ODD PLACE WITH MUCH CARE…

…..IN HOPES THAT SHE WOULD FIND IT JUST BY WANDERING THERE.

NOTE: NO NEED TO LOOK FOR THE STOCKING RIGHT NOW…

…..YOU WILL FIND IT LATER..TIED WITH A BOW.”

“THE FIRST GIFT WAS NESTLED UNDER A BED…

…..IN A ROOM WHERE OUR GUESTS LAY DOWN THEIR SWEET HEADS”

“THE NEXT GIFT WAS CLEVERLY HIDDEN UNDER A CAP…

…..WHERE GRANDMA DOES LAUNDRY, INSTEAD OF TAKING A NAP”

(Note: there was a red baseball hat that sat above the dryer…)

“WHEN OUT ON THE BACK LAWN LOOKING UP AT FLOWERS…

…..SANTA SAID “I WILL HIDE ONE UP HIGH BUT YOU DO NOT NEED A LADDER”

Hmmmm..she said…
