an early visit



be sure to leave a lineup of shoes out tonight. (some even leave carrots in them for the reindeer!) st. nicholas has been known to come and leave goodies inside because tomorrow is st. nicholas day!

it's one of my favorite traditions from my childhood.

Happy St Nicholas' Day for tomorrow and I hope Benji wakes to some treats!

I've always wanted to do this! We talked about it when I was younger, but my parents never adopted this. I guess they figured we had stockings. ;)

I'm not sure I want to put treats in my husband's shoes. Or some of mine. *ew, stinky*

Thanks for the reminder, Marta. My boys will be thrilled to discover sweets in their shoes tomorrow morning!

I love this tradition - and I actually just posted a similar post =)

Oh, I am so glad you posted this and I am so glad that I checked your blog tonight! Off to lay out my sleeping children's shoes and fill them with treats! Hooray!

Yay! St Nicholas was one of my favs growing up too! My husband thinks I'm crazy for pulling out the wooden shoes but it just isn't the holiday season without them!

It's one of my favorite traditions too! My boys were excited to find matchbox cars and thomas trains in their shoes yesterday morning!
