So, now, children leave their shoes out the evening of December 5th, in hopes of a special treat. This weekend my mother and I visitied the historic Daniel Boone home and we learned about this tradition. (a whole blog post on this visit to come- you guys would love it)
I didn't put my shoe out, but Saturday when I woke up (I'm visiting my parents for the weekend) I found this:
In the early 1800's fruits were a very special treat. Often, for Christmas or St. Nick's day, children would receive an orange as a gift. It may have been the first time they had ever tried one!
I love my mom. Thanks for such an adorable St. Nick's Day surprise!!
Later that day we headed off to old town St. Charles, Missouri. I have an entire post about that on the horizon too.
What a wonderful Christmas weekend!!!
Come back and see me!
