Saint Nicholas

Today, Lego Man and Princess P woke up to shoes filled with some goodies from Saint Nicholas.

Lego Man's shoes.

His shoe was filled with chocolate gold coins, tic tacs, a candy cane, and a Nativity sticker book.

Behind his shoes were three books....Good Saint Joseph by Father Lovasik, Padre Pio by Rev. Jude Winkler, and Christmas in the Trenches by John McCutcheon.

Princess P's shoes.

Her boot was filled with the same items as Lego Man's shoe.

Behind her shoe were three books.....Mary My Mother by Father Lovasik, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton by Father Lovasik and The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie dePaula.

There shoes were placed up high so that all of critters couldn't get into the goodies. Some of the excitement was trying to find where the shoes were left.

This is our first year celebrating the feast of Saint Nicholas. I had friends growing up that celebrated this wonderful day, but my family never did.

We read two wonderful stories to help celebrate this day.

We read about the real Saint Nicholas in our saint book.

We colored a picture of Saint Nicholas. You can find some wonderful coloring pages here.

We were going to make some Saint Nicholas cookies, but with two sick kids it didn't work out.

There's always next year.
