I tidied up the front closet this morning - specifically the shelves above the coats. They had become a dumping ground for all manner of things. Now I have some room to hide a few presents!
We took a walk to the pharmacy at the end of our street where they were selling these sweet little holly bushes. A perfect centerpiece for our table! Don't get too excited over the red berries. They are faux.
Last night I bagged all of the chocolate coins we'll need for our shoes and for church on Saint Nicholas Day (December 6th). Don't forget the Saint Nicholas Center Website to help you get ready! It has tons of crafts, food ideas, stories, and book suggestions. We'll be trying this cookie recipe using a St. Nicholas cookie cutter (last one on page). We are also reading these stories to our children each night (with a few theological corrections:) ).
