chocolate loving tricky girl of mine

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.
