Happy St. Nicholas Day

December 6th is always a special day because it’s St. Nicholas Day when we celebrate with little gifts for the children.  Today, my entire immediate family (+ son in law) will gather to have a turkey dinner for my USMC son who is home for two weeks.  I have little bags of candy coins to give each of them.

I also have a St. Nicholas drawing for my immediate siblings.  To enter, they must e-mail a story about St. Nicholas or Christmas growing up.  The drawing is next Sunday and the winner will get this hand pieced quilt that my mother and I pieced and I quilted.  The binding still needs to be hand stitched down.

This morning, the boys and I hiked in Forest Park.  Each of them ran into people they know.  I am feeling left out.  It was in the mid 30’s and very windy.
