During the wee hours of the night (how wee we will not get into) St. Nicholas snuck into our house and filled a great many shoes with goodies. So many goodies that the shoes were feeling a bit dwarfed by the piles surrounding them. Obviously he's got a van or something. However the logistics all played out the kids were thrilled when they woke up to find many things to unwrap and eat. Matthew in particular was very interested in eating things - wrapper and all. Later in the day Grandpa got older. How old doesn't seem to be as relevant as how many pieces of cake one may have.
