Happy Feast of St. Nicholas
Today is the Feast of St. Nicholas. He was Bishop of Myra and was known to be generous to the poor, often leaving them unexpected surprises when they were most needed.

Today they awoke to find there shoes filled with suckers, chocolate coins, and a new Christmas shirt. To top it off this year, a family gift was was received...their all-time favorite Christmas movie The Polar Express. There was lots of excitement in our house this morning!
