St Nicholas Day in our Home 2012
I do hope you will allow me to share some of our day with you here even though many have moved on now, even as we have.
You may remember that we change chocolate Santas to St Nicholas with the addition of a miter and crook.
In the past I have only been able to find very small santas to work with, less than 5cm high. However this year in fact months ago as I was shopping at ALDI (how I love the opportunities for shopping here in Wagga, even though I detest shopping itself) and saw these Santa's about 30 cm high for only $1 each. I immediately picked them up and had them in storage for all this time.
I can't begin to tell you how much easier they were to change, not nearly so fiddly.
recipe here. They were really lovely using spelt flour and no one could tell the difference
St Nicholas Hot Chocoate and put marshmallows and a candy cane in each cup
read on line here if you can't find a second hand copy
Also here is a script to act out this book ....so cool we may do this one next year
I look forward to sharing some of the other things we have done.......as soon as I can!
Blessings to you and your homes,
