St. Nicholas came, just a little after bedtime. He appears in the crisp, dark of the night. We can never figure out his mode of transportation as we can only see him when he walks up the snowy driveway, cape flowing out behind him. The children were thrilled to see him and Maria was not as afraid of the good bishop this year. He reminded the children to be kind like Jesus, and handed out the little bags of foiled wrapped chocolate coins.
You can see Alex holding baby Will for his first St.Nicholas celebration.
St. Nicholas led the children in prayer, then vanished into the night.
