The Feast of Saint Nicholas

                                                    Our Saint Nicholas Day
Larry and I work together on these feasts since we love to spoil are little girls.  Daddy had to work the next day so we took lots of pictures for him to see. We have had really fancy tables in the past. This year not as fancy but still so much fun:)
                                               Here is our Saint Nicholas Table
                                        Waiting for are little girls the next morning.

We had the girls leave their shoes out and then replaced them wth Slippers. We filled them with gold coins, and laid out our St Nick Puppets that daddy made for them a few years ago. Each girl also got a new book something we started a a couple years ago. The girls love it and each book is something they enjoy reading even after Christmas.

Saint nick also left them this sweet little PlanToys Plan Dollhouse Pet and Accessories Furniture. Our girls love animals all kinds really, and mom loves the Plan Toys.
                                                              Special Pancake Breakfast
         Homemade spelt Pancakes with Door County Cherries(from Door County Wisconsin)of course.  Real Whip cream, and Breakfast sasuages
We had our Hot chocolate and Cherry Pancake breakfast which was just wonderful. I also cook from scratch which makes family meals so special. I will post our Pancake recipe over at Cooking With A Large Family our cooking blog.
