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!!

We only had two slippers outside the door, but DD1 came home for the weekend so a parcel was there for her too, and there will be one for DD2 when she comes home next weekend ! :-)

I have been meaning to tell you for such a long time that the statue of St. Nicholas that you gave to your godsend here is one of his favorites. He even wrote a paper on it for school last year and one of the things he said was that he liked it because it made him think of his godparents. I thought that was really sweet and have been wanting to share that with you since then.

I'm new to your blog - love it! Am pregnant with number 5 and I know what you mean about finally beginning to relax and enjoy the miracle (but hating visits to the hospital).

Where do you get St Nicholas things like in your photograph?
