teasers and a contest

I have some catching up around here to do! I did notice, and will respond to these comments ~

1) "You are the woman!!! I really hope I can be like this someday.."

I have a charming tale of our Friday night just to show how NOT the woman I am and how I also hope I can be like this some day...

2)"What is St. Nicholas oil? I have never heard this. What are its origins, and what purpose does it serve? *Smile*"

I will explain this, since I know Mama isn't Catholic I want to explain it with some background information on sacramentals and such, so stay tuned!

3)"Hey, I thought the oranges-and-shoes thing with St. Nicholas was a Dutch tradition. Maybe you described it in your blog in some other place, but I'm curious: do you have a connection to this tradition in Europe through your family?"

I have an explaination regarding our attachment to St. Nicholas that will require a little more time than I have today. So, again, "coming soon"...

and:

4)"I've never done this with my children, but then I never even knew about this tradition until a couple of years ago and then I think it was too late for us as converts, to start this practice, considering the childrens ages."

St. Nicholas Day is still one of my favorite feasts, and I don't think you can ever be too old to celebrate! Stay tuned!

and FINALLY ~~~

Any guesses regarding what momentous occasion is coming up tomorrow? First one to get the correct answer will get a special gift in the mail from me.


thanks for stopping by, and

I'll Be Back!

(which leads me to reflect - when I started my blog I thought of you as a seasoned mom blogger. It meant a lot to me that you visited my blog and encouraged me. And now I realise you had only been blogging a month or so at the time! perspective is a funny thing...)

Today's my husband's birthday, but somehow I'm sure that's not what you mean.

Um, the day after St. Herman's Day?

OH, I thought maybe it was the birthday of your (can't say favorite, can't say first, maybe tallest?) niece and god-daughter...;-)
