    Hey, Carmen, Cub Scouting is just around the corner for that 5-year old! There will be some 'magic' and 'fascination' with childhood years on both your parts during those years, too. Anybody who's seen a pinewood derby, when the "kid" in the father comes out, knows that!
    When you try to put a little of the fairy tale into their lives, as you did with the elf, just tell them you're "make-believing". Then read them a good fairy tale; and they'll understand. It'll also make the transition from a childhood view of Santa to an adult one more easily accomplished.
