St. Nicholas Day and Santa at the Y

One of the things I love about being Catholic is all of the feast days throughout the year.  Monday was the feast of St. Nicholas, a generous bishop.  See here for more info on the real St. Nicholas.  So on Sunday evening before they went to bed, the kids put their shoes out in hopes that St. Nicholas would leave them a small treat.  And he did!  Each shoe (even Kit’s) had some chocolate coins.  Grace also got an American Girl book called Dance!  Jacob got R4-P17, and Clare got a small Yoda figurine.  They were all thrilled with their treats, and I’m pretty sure we had chocolate for breakfast.

On Saturday, Santa visited the local YMCA.  Clare wanted nothing to do with the poor man, but when she saw that Mrs. Claus had candy, she happily posed with her.  She’s a smart girl, that one!  Now we just have to wait for Santa to make his visit on Christmas eve!
