Saint Nicholas stopped here

December 6, 2008

I haven’t seen such fervent brushing cleaning and polishing of shoes in a long time.  But obviously the boys thought the results were worth it, this morning we had two excitedly smiling boys, and delicious summer fruits for breakfast (and a few chocolate coins).  Thankyou St Nick.


All the polishing enthusiasm spilled over into the playroom, and now a lingering smell of beeswax and lavender wafts through the air mingled with scents of mango and cinnamon coming from the kitchen… ahh the smells of Christmas.

    Love those little shoes. The shoes in front of our fireplace were decidedly bigger!

    My eldest took one look at his little shoes and thought Daddy should leave out his big gardening boots to see if St Nick would fill them!!! I love these precious moments of childhood.
