Early in December we celebrated the German tradition Nikolaustag. Except we put the shoes by the fireplace, not outside the door. We had an absurdly cold December.

Boo was beside herself with excitement. Who knew it would be so fun to put shoes by the fireplace?

I didn't plan ahead like I should have, and didn't have oranges...or nuts...or the girls got leftover Halloween pretzel bags in their shoes.

But they were tickled with their treats anyway.

Frohe Weihnachten!
