It’s been a long night. Mrs. Claus has been up all night, waiting for Santa’s return. There were a few more batches of cookies to bake, some last minute gifts to wrap, and the elves to be tucked up into bed. Afterwards Mrs. Claus could begin the sweet task of filling their stockings. Then she sat in her favorite chair by the fire, listening for the sound of sleigh bells in the distance. As dawn breaks over the North Pole, she knows that children all over the world are waking up to find their Christmas treasures. She smiles when she hears a familiar footstep on the porch. Santa’s home!
