Saint Nicholas Day

 Saint Nicholas paid a visit
 the night before, the kids put out wooden clogs ~ these came from my childhood when my parents visited the Netherlands & brought these back for my older sister, older brother, & i
 wood Saint Nicholas is from Ostheimer
 each one got the traditional clementine, candy cane, & gold chocolate coins
 this website has a lot of great ideas including how to turn a chocolate Santa into a Saint Nicholas
 out Saint Nicholas collection: book & coloring book (from France) & Saint Nicholas prayer cards (from the local Christian store)
 watching Saint Nicholas A Story of Joyful Giving
 brown paper packages tried up with red wool yarn
very easy to do, no tape needed, just brown paper, red wool yarn, & a paper doily stamped with rubber stamps

Happy Saint Nicholas day !!
