Sinter Klaas Day American Style (2nd time around)

Sinter Klaas visited last year for the first time. So, we thought we would do it again this year. We started doing a 12 days of Christmas thing with the kids this year, and of course, Holland is on the list. Again, we had my dad over to tell the stories told to him by his father who grew up in Holland. The kids loved it, and loved trying on the shoes!

Yia yia brought sprinkles, bread and butter over to have for dessert.
Con thought it was the best thing ever!

My dad started doing this on his mission in Holland,
and I remember doing it from time to time as a kid.

Before dinner with Yia yia

My dad telling the story to Soph. Notice she is wearing the shoes?

What an awesome thing. Love the wooden shoes and ornaments. Risa, I'm so proud of you and how you're raising your kids. It's all about family and that's so important. You are truly an inspiration. Love you :)
