Happy St. Nicholas Day! Today we celebrate St. Nicholas' birthday with shoes set out at the fireplace last night and filled with goodies this morning. I wanted to take pictures of the hearth, but my children beat me to it! They are filled with glee and anticipation as the Christmas season nears. We have many advent activities to prepare for the Coming, one being our advent wreath. Let the season of advent fill your hearts and soul with love as we await the joy of the coming of our Lord.
