We always did too and I did it also with my son.  Now, all the boys are older so most of their gifts consist of gift cards.

@aprose:  My mom and I also left one or two small gifts unwrapped so the kids would have something to play with for a little while and give them/us some extra time to sleep.  I know I was up at the crack of dawn as was my son, so that extra half hour or hour makes a huge difference.

Apparently I’ve passed on my love for Twilight to my daughter, lol, because now she’s always asking if we can watch “Edward” on tv.  So her grandparents are getting her this for Christmas:

And Santa is bringing her this (which I can’t wait to play with, too!):

@AudzinLuv: I remember the year I got my doll house.  My folks had it made for me because I wanted it barbie size and the dream house was way out of their budget.  I still have it til this day, now I use it as a bookshelf.

We’re doing this but it sort of feels like he won’t get to open enough on christmas morning :-/ I always had about 10 presents to open even if most of them were small, I got excited just to unwrap them. My mom would wrap our stocking gifts too (most of the time it was shaving cream, or face wash lol).

We have a total of 5 gifts. His big gift is a powerwheels truck which wasn’t exactly cheap, but he’s told us and santa that all he wants is a truck so…I hope he won’t be disappointed.
