Father reads the story of St. Nicholas to the children and then once he finishes the story St. Nicholas sneaks in from the back to surprise all of the children.
We are blessed at our church to have a lot of wonderful families. The girls are always very happy to take the little ones by the hand and show them away. Here is Ben in line with one of his friends. She made sure he got to meet St. Nick.
And daddy took Anna up to get her gold coin.
In preparation for tomorrow's feast we all put our shoes out by the door so St. Nicholas could leave us a few treats. I also made the mix for St. Nicholas Cocoa to have tomorrow morning
