at Christmas we ...
used to put the children's presents into sacks which were left on the sofa in the lounge for them. Father Christmas would also leave a small stocking in their rooms with a few smaller presents in. These could be opened as soon as they woke and would keep them occupied until after breakfast. Once dressed and breakfasted they would finally be let into the lounge to open their presents.

And in 2012 Father Christmas actually delivered a stocking each for me and Hugh! We were very surprised to wake up on Christmas morning and find these outside our bedroom door.
Nowadays, the main presents are all under the tree and we take it in turns to open a present with everyone else watching.
So that is the end of the Christmas Club. It has been wonderful to join in again and read everyone's festive stories. I am looking forward to visiting all the other blogs over the next few days and if you go to Sian's post here you will find the links to these other festive stories.
Merry Christmas to you all!
