Happy St. Nick's Day!

This was our first year celebrating St. Nick's Day and I've got to say, it's one of my new favorite feast days. I gave it my best shot - here's what we did...

We talked a lot about him.

We hung stockings and waited for the morning to see what he'd put in them.

He brought St. Nicholas gold coins with chocolate inside (thanks Lisa for this link!), silver coins with their patron Sts. Joan of Arc and Clare, a Miraculous Medal and medals of St. Bernadette and St. Clare.

And because Joan's been dealing with a shoe blister since Thanksgiving, he brought her some "Band Angels."

We're hoping the band-aids will also help with teething... 

Then we went to church to thank God for our blessings and to honor old St. Nick by dropping off a coat for someone in need.

And this was just cute, so it's going up too! I think she looks like my sister-in-law, Chloe and Chloe's mother-in-law knitted this adorable sweater! Thanks June!

Now we're getting ready for The Immaculate Conception on Wednesday. I'd love to know what you're doing or if you have any ideas for my little ones!

Looks like a lovely tradition to add into the mix!
