Happy St. Nick's Day!

Today is St. Nick's Day!
As I said before, this is the very first year that we are honoring this patron saint in our own house... 
Usually, we get some really fun things from Allen's parents as "the kids," but this year we are the parents for the very first time! :)

I framed a prayer card of St. Nicholas for future years, so that B won't confuse St. Nick's Day and Christmas morning... This year, I got her a new pair of shoes and socks, some much-needed cozy sleepers, and a Christmas shirt!  

Hopefully, in future years, we will be able to take a deeper look into the legends that surround St. Nicholas, and make this day more about giving to those in need...
Happy St. Nick's Day to you!
