12.06.13 **St. Nick's Day**

Tis the season for wrapping paper and bows!
I love Christmas time!
I love the decorations, seeing the smiles on everyones faces as they open gifts, spending time with family, all of the parties, and most of all traditions.
My family has a lot of traditions & it seems as if we start more each year.
This year it's the Elf on the Shelf!
Bing made an appearance in one of our family's oldest tradition of celebrating St. Nick's Day.
We put out our wooden shoes & waited for Old St. Nick to make his appearance.  Bing came back from the North Pole and landed right in Brad's shoe.

Each year St. Nick brings each of us a pomegranate, a clementine, chocolate oranges {MY FAVORITE}, an ornament for the tree, & a small gift for each of us.
Norah's ornament was El Chupacabra from Planes.  Very fitting since it was the first movie she saw in the theaters.
Brad & I got a sweet little Santa ornament from Williamsburg.
Norah broke the propeller off of El Chupacabra within 10 minutes of receiving him.  Oh well, we hung it on the tree anyway. :)

Norah is getting really good at opening her gifts!  This Christmas is going to be a lot of fun & I'm going to soak up every second of it!!  St. Nick brought her a tea set for the bath tub.  She can't get enough of it!
I know this is going to be a special Christmas for her & I can't wait to see her face light up when she comes down the stairs on Christmas morning!
St. Nick's Day is a great preview of the big day!!
