It’s almost time for St. Nicholas to appear! Kai and I have gone through her clothes and toys, finding all the things she’s outgrown or never really used in the first place. We’ve been talking about how we’re being helpers and how that’s the spirit of St. Nicholas inspires us. There’s only so much a one and a half year old can get behind, but it’s been fun so far.
This is the first year we’ve tried to combine Christmas and being a low plastic/low waste household. Some things have been easy, like replacing gift wrap with cloth bags. I don’t know about you, but having an excuse to never have to deal with wrapping odd shaped packages and the inevitable paper cuts makes me want to dance in the streets.
