It's the holiday season..

The American holiday season kicks off with Thanksgiving but luckily in my family we don't have to wait too long before our next round of fun. As I said before my family is mostly Irish, but in early December I get to be proud of our little bit of Czech heritage when we celebrate St. Nicholas Day. Growing up, we were the only family I knew of who celebrated this day. I loved it! To me it always felt like "Appetizer Christmas" as we'd get (and still do!) a stocking full of little treats. Per tradition, at the bottom of our stocking there's always a quarter (no accounting for inflation apparently) and an orange. It's one of my favorite family memories and I can't wait to pass it on when I have kids someday!!

Didn't get a chance to do so before, so here's a solid block of photos from the first half of my Holidays: Thanksgiving weekend with my family, visiting Kate last weekend in festive DC and our slightly adjusted St. Nicholas celebration (my poor mommy is in the hospital with pneumonia- boo!!! Feel better soon!).
