SinterKlaas has come!

Every Saturday, SinterKlaas comes to Dutch homes and leave a gift in the shoes of the boys and girls.


This past Saturday, I found these gifts left at the wrong house. They were for my friends who I make lace with but he left them here. I guess the Sint thought I could be a good 'help Piet' and deliver them. And of course, I will today!


They are each receiving a set of snowman mugs with handmade coasters to go with them. A fun gift to be used all winter and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. I hope you like them Sonja and Jannie!

The Great Dane and I will sneak over to our son's and DIL's house next week to leave a little something from SinterKlaas and Black Peter - and this year there will be something for Declan too. We may be a bit silly doing this, still, but it is a beloved family tradition. Our daughter will be home on that night, from the mainland - she loves the old traditions too.
