On This Feast Of St. Nicholas

What we're doing:
The kids woke up this morning to gifts of chocolate in their shoes they had set by the door last night.  It seems St. Nicholas was out of chocolate coins and gave us all regular and dark chocolate kisses.  Nobody seemed to mind.  We also plan on coloring one of these pictures of St. Nicholas today.

What we're watching:
We are lucky enough to already own Nicholas - The Boy Who Became Santa.  So we'll be enjoying that today.

What we're baking:
A version of like this St. Nicholas Pfeffernusse.  Ours comes from the back section of my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.  (I'm also catching up on some other cookie baking I didn't get to last week.  Namely Raspberry Pinwheels and Russian Tea Cakes.)

What we're reading:
Last night we started the mood off with Country Angel Christmas.  Tomie DePaola is fast becoming my favorite children's author.

Happy Feast of St. Nicholas!

How fun! I have never tried to make Pfeffernusse, but you have inspired me to give it a try next year. It really sounds yummy. Hope you had a wonderful feast day!
