Happy St. Nicholas’ Day!

The children awoke to some treats this morning:


~Chocolate St. Nicholas with candy cane crozier
~A bag of chocolate gold coins
~A note of encouragement and some suggestions for preparing their hearts for Christmas
~2 new Christmas books: Mortimer’s Christmas Manger and Room for a Little One

Last night we read some wonderful selections from the library:
The Baker’s Dozen: A Saint Nicholas Tale
The Miracle of St. Nicholas

We started reading The Legend of Saint Nicholas this morning, also a library book, but I don’t think the children are old enough to appreciate it yet.

Today we’re all excited to bake St. Nicholas Purse Cookies for tea-time.

I love this time of year!
