Well, what do you know, the Faceparents (uh, myself and Joshua) got it together to have things ready for St. Nicholas Day before we went to bed last night. We hung stockings filled with a bit of candy (even for Benedict) and a small toy or game for each of them. We woke up early this morning to make breakfast so we could enjoy it as a family. We made pancakes and served them with fresh applesauce and whipped cream.Â I made a pot of Mystic Monk Coffee and had a mug of it with half and half then topped it with whipped cream. I was in heaven. (No I was not counting calories)
The kids slept until close to 730, Joshua had to go up and wake three of them up to come and eat. My kids are usually the ones up at 702 and ready for breakfast. Karol was the first to spy the stockings and they were very excited to dig in to them, even Benedict. After breakfast and schoolwork, Karol asked to listen to some music, so I put on some Sandra Boynton and Veggie Tales and the kids have been dancing all morning and now afternoon.
Tonight is baked potato soup and garlic toast (if I get up and bake the bread).
Happy Feast Day!
