The 12 Days of Christmas

This year we had a secret santa delivering presents to our house! For the past 12 days they have bought us gifts. They've knocked on the front door and before I could get there, they disappeared! They started a twitter account and on the third day tweeted to us "On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me... go check your mailbox!" On twitter they follow Buddy the Elf, Rudolph, Santa Claus and me and Jack! They saw us playing in the backyard so they dressed in black with masks and got the boys' attention with a bird call then took off running as they delivered the 7th day of Christmas gift. Caleb exclaimed, "I saw our secret santa! He's a ninja!! I think we should call him our secret ninja!!" They called Jack's cell phone with a blocked number and left a cryptic message about a package in the driveway. We've come home after being out and found gifts waiting on the back steps.

This has been the most fun event in our house this year! The boys have been beyond excited each day to get a gift from our secret santa! And today, our secret santa knocked on our door and revealed themselves as they sang the song listing off all of our gifts and giving us 12 krispy kreme donuts!! So much fun!!!!

The secret santas were a very sweet couple from our church- Carson and Kelsey Smith. What a blessing they were to us this year. We can't wait to try our own 12 days of Christmas surprise with someone else one day. Carson said that when he was a boy, a co-worker of his father and his family did the secret santa 12 days of Christmas with them. Now they are passing it on to us.



I didn't get a picture of the fourth day!! It was four slinky's.
