Happy Feast of St. Nicholas!
This morning my family found that St. Nicholas had visited our house last night. (He comes for his feast day, not on Christmas Eve. It's a special arrangement we have with him.) In our stockings my kids found new winter pajamas, markers, and golden chocolate coins.
The kids have had a lot of feasting today - lots of chocolate - and I just let them each have two more coins to hold them over until after supper.
Upon finishing hers, L asked me if she could play church.
"Of course, sweetie! That's a good idea!" I was so proud.
"Well, can I have another chocolate coin to be Jesus Christ?"
No, sweetie, you cannot. Though that is very, very clever, you cannot.
