St. Nicholas Day
The next night was the eve of St. Nicholas' visit! We placed our shoes out with tender care, only this night was a bit different since Ryan and I would be leaving early the next morning for our trip (more on that later), so Grandpa and Grandma's shoes were left out instead. The next morning, the kids woke up to shoes filled with oranges, chocolate coins, and for the kids- new slippers and books!
The kids had fun over the next several days with Grandpa and Grandma, then with my Mom and two brothers, while Ryan and I left town for a little vacation!
