Happy Feast of St. Nicholas! How were your shoes this morning?
While some people like to fill old stinky shoes with candy or other goodies on this wonderful Feast Day, we have a new family tradition of buying new shoes to honor St. Nick. Our girls need it, especially Charlotte who is seriously lacking in the snow boot department and there is a foot of snow outside. And we live in Colorado. So that's not going to change.
Anyway, this post is just a reminder that this wonderful Saint is real! Yes, I just said it kids, Santa is Real! Just not in the way that Macy's portrays him. And Veggie Tails has it all wrong, by the way. The suit comes from his Bishop's robes. How cools is that?
Also, this post is a challenge for you to take old, possibly weird traditions and turn them into something new that works better for your family. Do you want to wake up the morning of December 6th to stinky chocolate? Or new cozy slippers?
If you said Stinky Chocolate you might just need to check your sugar addiction. Also, wash your shoes.
Enjoy today, folks! And remember, Thursday, December 8th is a Holy Day of Obligation for all you Catholics out there. It's a sweet one, too!
