st. nic’s feast day

st. nick

books

we did our st. nic’s feast day tradition of leaving darla’s shoes out over night. we didn’t go as big as last year and it made not one bit of difference to darla. just a few small sweets and some books and nail polish was all it took to make the girl happy.

in the interest of full disclosure we regifted her the nail polish, just wrapped some holiday candy we already have and i got some used books that the library was taking out of circulation for 50 cents a piece. that approach appeals to my zero waste sensibilities much more. i feel a bit foolish about going so over the top last year. oh well.

and in further disclosure, i had purchased darla a new pair of shoes for 2013 but they didn’t arrive in time. we’ll just put those under the tree for christmas i guess.

nativeshoesnot gonna lie, very excited about these cute Native Shoes coming our way :)  just a small bit of consumerism creeping up in me i guess.

  1. Ohhh yeah! I’d forgotten about this tradition! We had some friends from the us visiting a couple of years back, and they filled all the little wellies with gingerbread men. Must continue this tradition! So cute. Which date is it on now again? /Louisa
