12 days of Christmas

We have a puzzle at our house...some secret Santa somewhere is leaving little gifts on our step each night.

The first day of Christmas: we got a lovely loaf of
home made bread
The second day: two rolls of scotch tape
The third day: three boxes of jello
Today: four rolls of TP

Each little gift is accompanied by a cute poem. Today's poem says
"It's the fourth day of Christmas, And I'll bet you thought we missed you.
We didn't though, and here you have four rolls of bathroom tissue."
So, here are the clues:
  • Our "Santa" comes each evening between 5:00 and 6:00.
  • We've never seen a car speeding away.
  • The gifts arrived even during a snow storm.
  • Santa is gutsy, Steve & I were working in front of our dining room window on the first night...in full view of the front door and "he" gifted us anyway.
We're thinking neighbor, but our usual suspect is taking off for Whistler tomorrow and wouldn't be around to do the remaining "Days of Christmas." The other thought is that there is a dad somewhere that has the assignment of dropping the gifts at the front door each night on his way home from work. I'm thinking that the delivery person is a teen aged boy, Santa is QUICK!
Any ideas?

I will keep a close watch to see if any cars come speeding around the curve for a quick get away!

Thanks! It would be great to know if there are any cars careening through the "hood" between 5 and 6 (besides Makenna.) But you're on the suspect list...P & B did go to speed and agility camp last summer :)
