Happy St. Nicholas Day!!

Happy Feast of Saint Nicholas


 I savored the sweet quiet moment of looking at these still small shoes all lined up. I loved seeing their happy smiles as they opened their chocolate gold coins and their new Christmas books.

The Cherry Cheese Candy Cane Coffee Cake was a delicious way to start the day. I made this cake using the technique for shaping here, but the recipe here except I omitted the glaze on top. It was fun to add this new treat to our celebration from years past.

I love this Saint Nicholas prayer for children.

God of joy and cheer,
we thank you for your servant,
the good bishop Nicholas.
In loving the poor,
he showed us your kindness;
in caring for your children,
he revealed your love.
Make us thoughtful
without need of reward
so that we, too, may be good
followers of Jesus.

We had a simple day of Saint Nicholas activities yesterday and this morning, reading some of favorite Saint Nicholas books and watching The Boy Who Became Santa Claus.  

This little man was giddy about all the excitement.

St. Nicholas, Pray for Us.
