holly The tradition that is Christmas Plans

I remember when I was little that me and my brothers and sister would take graph paper and make a map of the house then decides who goes where and what to do. And we would always have a old lunch box full of tape and scissors and glue so we could see inside and tape it back up. What I would like to know is if anyone else made plans and what was it below is my old plan.

1. My brother around four in the morning would pretend to go to the bathroom and flush the toilet. He then would close his door to make it sound like he went back in.

2. The day before on Christmas eve I oil my door very well with my mother cooking oil so that it won't creak. If I cannot do this then I play my recorded tape of me coughing and say to my mother or father "I don't feel good." She or He gives me cough medicine then send me downstairs I then pretend to go in the room.

3. My older brother down the hall from me when I come back from my medicine will open his door as I close mines so they won't here noise.

4. If the dog is in the hall My sister will have peanut butter with her and will feed the dog some to keep it from barking.

5. We rendezvous in the kitchen on the way to the den and stop for a snack then I will flip over the couch my sister will go under the chairs and my brothers over the table. Victory!!!!!!!!

6. We open one of the sides of the present to see what we got then using our Christmas tool we tap it back up perfectly then sneak back to our rooms.

That is funny! You went to great lengths to see what you got, LOL!!

My mom always made a rule that if we went snooping for presents and found any, we wouldn't get to keep them. She said she knew when we were truly suprised and when we were faking it! It only happened once and we never snooped again!!

I've never snooped, I love the surprise and the long wonder of what the heck could be in that huge box?

yes, I have 3 boys. I've overheard quite a few elaborate plans.

Snooping at mine would have been useless, my mum is master of hiding presents lol, seriously she could hide ANY present, we looked, we never found and we looked EVERYWHERE once she bought the presents on the way to our Aunts house and managed to keep them hidden in the back of the car there was food in the back and we were going through things and eating the food and we didn't see a single thing!
