Happy Santa Claus Day!

Today the kids in Switzerland celebrated St. Nicholas Day. It started last night, when you put out a boot for St. Nicholas to fill. Then, this morning you wake up to find nuts and chocolate in the boot:

Jack was so excited to see what Santa Claus had left him
But he was mad when I told him he had ate enough candy for the morning
Then we went to the mall to sit with Santa. Jack did surprisingly well!
He received more chocolate, nuts and a clementine
Then we saw another Santa roaming the mall
Who gave him even more candy!

He was able to spend some time with his little friend Anik. She loves to hold his hand where ever we go. Jack figured this out and now he thinks it is funny to hide his hand behind his back just to frustrate her.

We even got some more nuts and chocolate from our lunch at McDonalds.

I think we have enough candy to last us until Easter!
