In our house, the stockings are hung by the doorway with care.  We don’t have a chimney.  This poses a slight problem for how Santa is supposed to shimmy down the chimney and place goodies in our stockings.

Thankfully, tonight our Elf is delivering a little help for us.  Santa has a magic key.  He got in the dollar section at Michael’s, along with a wood box that was stained and lined with red felt.  The elf will leave this for us to place by the door.  That way, Santa is able to get into the house with no trouble and snack on some scrumptious cookies.


The elf is also leaving a little story, letting us know about the key, and reminding us of the true meaning of the season.

Dear Santa,

This magic key works just for you, so open the door and come on through.  Thank you for coming to our house tonight, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  Thank you Santa for the gifts you bring, and thank you Lord for everything.

I love when the Elf leaves us magical surprises and can’t wait to see HJ wake up to find our magic key.
