In our house, Santa leaves the filled stockings on each girl's bed which they can open when they wake (at 4:45 am most years). Santa also ties a great big red velvet ribbon across the bottom of the staircase to prevent little girls from rushing downstairs too soon. They are so cute lined up on the bottom step squealing and craning their necks to see what's under the tree. He's pretending I'm not totally crushing his leg right now.
Here's my first baby's visit to see Santa. CB was 7 months old and was probably the only of my four who looked happy sitting on his lap.
