St. Nicholas Day

We celebrated St. Nicholas Day on December 6th. The boys put out one of their shoes (they actually decided that they wanted to use their snow boots! LOL!) with the hope that St. Nick would leave them a small treat. I had wanted to put a little piece of chocolate that was wrapped in a santa wrapper but I forgot to get them. But we did have these really cute toys that we had bought for Christmas that we thought would be fun for them. Here is a link with more about St. Nicholas
The toy with the red tag on it is called a hooey stick. It's kind of funny and Aiden just LOVES it. We also got little wooden whistles for the boys and they both are enjoying those as well.

Bennett had to finish his banana before he could play with his toys!
And here is Aiden working his hooey stick. You can see his mouth and can tell he is saying hooey. It was so fun to do with the kids and even though there were only a few small gifts they were thrilled!
