Quick background - I have an eight year old son, a six year old son and a three year old daughter. Santa is very much 'in' at my house, even with the eight year old, though time is short. I have explained to him how as a child I believed in Santa, then stopped for a time, then started again as a Daddy. (Santa is real and I am one of his helper!) I have bought time each year by planting 'evidence' of Mr. C. One year it was a bell from his sleigh hanging from their bedpost with a note (this was before the Polar Express) The next year it was a trail of polaroids that led to their 'big' present. In one picture you could see Santa's hand and sleeve. The following year I lightly etched parallel lines in the driveway from Santa's sleigh runners - complete with chewed carrots and oats my kids left for the reindeer. This year we are in a borrowed house as a result of the storms. I really want to provide another piece of evidence for my kids, particularly since time is short for the suspension of disbelief of the oldest. I've been trying to figure out just what to do and coming up blank. Maybe there is some creative types here who would be willing to lend an idea?
