This year, we got to go see Sinterklaas and Swart Pete for the first time! They just happened to be at The Old Dutch store in Sugarhouse.
We met Opa and Yia yia there. Opa is 1/2 Dutch you know!
I think the kids liked it.
Sinterklaas Eve also happened to be my birthday. So, we celebrated it all. We had dinner in the formal dining room, which is always special and fun.
The kids decorated it. They were sure to put lots of sprinkles on top!
Having your picture taken when you are nine months pregnant is never flattering, but it is what it is!
The kids love Opa, and love the stories. My dad had a heart attack Feb 26, 2010. I am so glad he made it, and is here to celebrate another holiday with us! Love you Dad!
He also left white bread and sprinkles, a traditional Dutch breakfast, eaten with butter on the bread, and then sprinkles on top of that.
