I'm a little late (wince) for tomorrow. Tomorrow is, of course, Saint Nicholas Day and this site is a plethora of information about that great saint. The Barrett children are wigged out excited to put out their shoes tonight in the hope that gold coins will appear tomorrow morning. They will, courtesy of Trader Joe's $1.99 cute bags of them.
I was also able to score some lovely foil covered Santa chocolates at Aldi's for cheap this week. Whee!
If you are prepared for Saint Nick's congratulations. If you did nothing, worry not. Check the St. Nicholas link on the sidebar and be sure to go over to St. Nicholas Center, there are so many stories, coloring pages, easy peasy crafts (including my dear friend Alice's spoon saint craft, which is genius simplicity) and recipes.
Now, I'm going to try to be on the ball and remind you that Saint Lucy's feast is in eight days so if you have visions of sweet little girls in white nightgowns bringing sweet rolls around in the early morning you had best make a plan.
We have a Saint Lucy link there in the sidebar as well and here is a list of other useful ideas:
This post by Elizabeth Foss is a lovel tour of Advent through her home in years past and has an inspiring picture of her girls in St. Lucy garb.
Catholic Sistas did a lovely St. Lucy post last year.
So that should give you something to chew on, and hopefully I'll make a little plan myself. If you have an idea, please share it in the comments or on our Facebook Page!
