A Happy Feast of St. Nicholas, from the elves in Canada to you!
Around here, St. Nicholas' Day gets a little more festive every year. We are very fond of this good kind bishop and we take the excuse to eat chocolate coins and read our new St. Nicholas day books, all day long, without getting out of our pajamas.
I made the boys some new St. Nicholas day hats. They are very good sports to wear them, for five seconds, for the pictures. I understand, I really do, that they are big boys now and mama's silly hats are not quite cool enough for big boys.
I mean....ears? Seriously, mom.
Here are the tomten hats:
Hugh is taking his chocolate up to his room, in this picture, to consume it privately, quickly, and silently. He's no fool, Hugh.
St. Nicholas Day tomtens. OOOOOOOooooo, how cute!
