Looking forward to St. Nicholas

Our parish is doing something lovely this year:

  1. Such a lovely idea! I think that's a great way to get the kids excited and inspired.

  2. By the way - you won my giveaway!! I'm going to send you a set of 10 of my original, personally designed Christmas cards from my Orthodox Christian Gifts store at cafepress.

    What I need is for you to post your email address you[at]domain[dot]com (don't want you to get spammed), so we can arrange the shipment!

    Congratulations, and Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Awesome! Good job!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Just wanted you to know that I sent you an email. It's from icxcgifts [at] yahoo [dot] com.

  5. I love this idea! I wish our parish were a little larger so we could try a dramatic artist, I'm just not sure where my talents can be used in Orthodoxy....of course, they get plenty of use homeschooling my 10

    At any rate, please post more about this event! I would love to hear a description of how things went and what was shared!
