Happy St. Nicholas Day!
We had a VERY busy weekend, but a very nice St. Nicholas Day. This year only six shoes on the hearth, since oldest son is away, but a box of goodies arrived for him that day.
We missed Great Vespers Friday evening due to illness and a choir performance, but we got anointed with St. Nicholas oil Sunday after Divine Liturgy.
This week brings more choir rehearsals and a big concert, a cookie exchange, as well as a church party. We'll be busy baking, singing, wrapping and doing school.
This past Saturday my older girls sang in a concert with a chamber orchestra. I hope to write a post soon about the joy of seeing beautiful music being performed live. I am still enjoying the thought of it.
So, many blessing to you all. St. Nicholas, pray to God for us!!
