Happy St Patrick's Day!

We don't really know a whole lot about St Patrick or why we celebrate here but for us it's all about celebrating green and doing things a little differently for a day. We did the typical decorating - some shamrocks on the door arches and a wreath, green table cloth, dishes and food of course. Matthew refused to wear green (considering he will only wear 3 pairs of his pants that wasn't a big surprise), Marlee looked quite sweet - especially adding the multi-coloured tights. We did have Lucky Charms and green grapes for breakfast, green pancakes and peas for lunch. Not quite the same to do a green dinner for only Drew, Cierra and I. Oh well - it was fun while it lasted! The kids have now gone to Ya-Ya's for a sleepover and Cierra is already in her pj's so it is just Drew and I for the yearly photo. It only took three takes to get rid of the double chins!

  1. FYI. St. Patrick took Christianity to the Irish. He used the shamrock to explain the trinity.
