I know you should hang the stockings by the chimney with care, but at our house the chimney is in use! We hung the kid's stockings in the living room doorway.
We each had jobs. Cole's job was to test the lights.
When we were all done I said, "Hmmm. . . . something's missing. . . ." Then I went to my stash and put some presents under the tree. If I had thought the boys were excited before, they were doubly excited after they saw the presents!
