Reminds me of the time when my daughter was around 8 yrs old I had gotten her a sled for Christmas. I had hid the sled behind my bedroom dresser & forgotten all about it. The sled stayed hidden for 2 years!!!! I dropped an earring behind the dresser. Lo & behold there was the sled. I gave her the sled as a birthday present. Her birthday is in June. blush
That was the last time I hid xmas gifts.
