I have been here
Your treats are near
You will find them where
You say your prayer.
I love riddles, aparently so does Saint Nicholas. My six year old guessed right away where he would find the goods, on or near our prayer table. And sure enough, that is where they were. They were around our bible and he also left a book.
I regret not taking pictures. Instead of making a cake or cookies, we have three snowmen in our backyard. Noah called my inlaws and wished them all a "Frohes Fest". They were having a St. Nicholas Day party with friends and family. Noah even had a chance to chat a little with Oma. Later, the kids coloured pictures of Saint Nicholas. Afterwards, we had hot chocolate and listened to Christmas music. We kept things simple, as usual.
I guess the most special thing that happened was when a line appeared. Not just any line, but a faint pink line. Actually, if I am totally honest I saw about five or six faint lines over the past few days. I don't even know if I want to post this, but I have to tell someone. The kids do not know and we are holding off telling family and friends until we can't hold it in anymore. I am praying my novenas and offering up little things for this.
I hope your family had a wonderful Nichlas Day.
