St. Nicholas Came!!!

Well I am pleased to report that St. Nicholas was able to find time in his busy schedule to stop by our house. He picked up the clothes and shoes we left for him to take and left us with some good stuff - even a little something for baby #2!!!

 E was not happy about St. Nik-las having to take Mama's shoe.

After we moved the basket for St. Nicholas into the chapel and E picked through the basket and got over the shoes leaving she looked out the window and said Nik-las Nik-las. I told her St. Nicholas would probably come during her night night time so she took her nap and went to bed saying Nik-las Nik-las.

Papa got home from work in the nick of time to see what St. Nik-las brought. E usually needs some snuggling when she wakes up but we told her she had to see what St. Nicholas brought and the Ni-ni was left behind. She banged on the chapel doors and this is what she found.

Everyone has their own pile. 

 Not sure what to think about the presents.

In E's stack: 1 Hanna dress, 2 pairs of tights, Christmas pajamas, slippers, Hello Kitty underwear,      St. Nik-las icon card

 Papa excited about his new boxers and Code of Canon Law of Eastern Catholic Churches 
(Come on girls - I know there are at least 2 of you whose hubbys will appreciate a book like this)

 Underwear taken out - check, stockings off the hook - check, put slippers on - working on it!

Newborn long sleeve onesies for new baby!

 Sts. Joachim and Anna icon for the family. 

Smelling the flowers that St. Nik-las left for Mama and a new shirt too!

E was 'happy' about St. Nik-las and 'like it'. I had a fun time helping St. Nicholas make his feast day special for our family!!!

Success - check!!!


  1. T woke up searching for Saint Nicholas, he was a little scared that he actually might find him! And a side note, we were married on the feast of Saints Anne and Joachim and have two icons of them above our bed. One is of them presenting Mary to the Temple and the other is the Immaculate Conception. People think it is very strange that we have an icon of the Immaculate Conception above our bed, but as long as you don't think about it TOO much, it is great!! ;)

  2. That is awesome! The wisdom of a 2 yr old!!! We were married on the Feast of Sts. Cosmos and Damien (11/1 - eastern calendar) so in the chapel we have the Wedding at Cana and Cosmos and Damien beneath the principle icons. It took awhile to get the chapel set up the way we wanted so hopefully we can have a similar set-up/layout in the new house!
