Happy St. Nicholas Day!

St. Nicholas was a good man, with a good heart. He is the patron saint for everyone from children to sailors to prisoners. We celebrate his feast day as an opportunity to remember how wonderful it is to be able to give, both materially and of ourselves and our time.

Every year Scott and Evie bake a sweet bread in the shape of St. Nicholas' head, this year we ate it with milkshakes!

This afternoon we will go, with grandma and grandpa, to a concert of holiday music in a beautiful church downtown. Then out to dinner and home to decorate the tree a little. I love our holiday traditions.
