Breakfast Elves

Field trip bread inspires this post-St. Nicholas Day dinner. Our daughter returned from her class field trip with a nice little loaf of brown bread. There was not enough for our not-so-little family, so we also serve pancakes.
Yesterday was St. Nicholas Day—better known as Elves’s Day in our family. The kids dutifully placed their Christmas lists in their stocking and awoke to find the lists replaced by candy and Christmas ornaments. We hang the ornaments on the Christmas tree tonight.

The baby hurt her leg the other day. Robin was helping our daughter with some school work when she heard a crash from the other room. This, of course, is typical in our house, but we grew very concerned when we realized that the baby could not stand. Happily, she was inspired by the “toys” in the pet aisle at Wegmans to try walking tonight.
