This evening, Helen and Connor set out shoes with carrots in them, in the hopes that St. Nicholas would pass by our home. As it turns out, he did. Helen has been gifted some fancy chocolates and a small wooden sleigh driven by a snail. Connor has been gifted some chocolate kisses and a yo-yo, and our babysitter has also been gifted some fancy chocolates.
Tomorrow, Helen will likely receive a golden walnut at school, and Connor reports that St. Nicholas will drop a kiss off in his shoes while he's at P.E. Never mind that he doesn't actually have P.E. tomorrow!
St. Nicholas Day is a special day in my house, because it's also my sister's birthday. Strangely, her present is already wrapped and sitting under the Christmas tree. Now...should I mail it or just bring it home at Christmas. I have one other item to drop at the post office so maybe, just maybe, this will be the year she gets a gift on time - or just a little bit late.
