I did when the kids were small, and then when I was raising the gd's. John liked the idea so when the girls were not with me he still wanted me to do it.
This yr, not sure what will occur, if I with the gd's of course it will be out.
If I'm not, who knows.

Used to up until about 5yrs ago, we'd leave a couple of biscuits out and a note to say that the drink is in the fridge, because it would get warm on a hot summer night and nothing worse than a warm drink LOL

I still have the boys To Santa letters, I showed the letters to the boys last year, was funny

I do as usually some of my Grandkids are here Christmas morning and all of them still believe in Santa, well except for maybe two of them... Of course I may add that they are usually "Santa's" favorite kind though! Ha-Ha!
To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.

Happy face

Theresa, what a wonderful tradition.. hopefully the plate will be passed on through the generations. It would be a family heirloom!

Minny the Plate and Mug are 30 years old...when my oldest daughter was born that's when I started leaving out the milk and cookies for Santa and she did not want the plate and mug for her kids but my son did so that is why he has it and not my oldest daughter...

Have no idea why she never wanted them...but my son loves doing the same tradition with his children...and hopefully the tradition will pass on to his grandchildren one day...

Smiles & Hugs...
