Our St. Nicholas Day

December 6, St. Nicholas of Myra, Pastor. I start off the morning as I usually do, with my Treasury of Daily Prayer and cup of coffee. I also treated myself to the first slice of Pan au Chocolat. The babies love the day we remember St. Nicholas for obvious reasons…chocolates and treats in the shoes.

I decided a pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cake looked almost like a crown so it was a win win.
