December Daily: Day 16

Today was Saint Nicholas day. I want Ethan to know who Saint Nicholas was; he was a man who loved God and shared the love of God with those around him. After we read a couple of stories about the real Santa Claus, Ethan decided he wanted to be Saint Nicholas too!

This is a new tradition I want to start. I found dollar store stockings and had him fill them with oranges and some chocolate gold coins. Then, Ethan wrote Merry Christmas on the Christmas cards we had made a couple of weeks ago.

It was such a challenge for Ethan to sneak quietly to our neighbors' house. He tried really hard. We just left them at the door.

Doesn't he look so sweet as Saint Nicholas?
