Every year we put our shoes out on the evening of December 5th so
Mommy can put the gifts that Nana Kerry gives her Saint Nicholas can come and leave a gift in each set of shoes to open on Saint Nicholas day.
I forgot Saint Nicholas arrived during breakfast.
Nana Saint Nicholas got some super cute gingerbread men for our not-quite-as-cute-on-this-particular-morning kids.
During breakfast, Daddy drew a picture of St. Nicholas and I accused him of drawing a picture of the pope...
So he logged online to show prove me wrong. But for the record, he didn't color his Saint Nicholas red so I didn't understand the key wardrobe differences! Reminiscing on Saint Nicholas Tag** led him to reminisce on the events of his Austrian childhood and thus he and Rock watched a bunch of German kids shows on Youtube...
Since it was about three degrees outside, we took the kids shopping for a coat for Louisa and a new hat for Rock. After that, it was time for our annual tree-picking event at Home Depot.
He got into it when he learned we could make ugly faces at the ugly trees. Zoom in to see the plethora of dead needles, Rock's fantastic ugly face and his super snow hat!
