We've been green for about a week
Dinner was quite festive though I must say. The table was all decked out in green,
- green mashed potatoes
- green broccoli
- green peas
- ham (couldn't make it green but I have an idea for ground beef next year)
- chocolate mint chipit ice cream
- lime jello with whipped cream
I did a quick reading on the history of St Patrick and why it is celebrated today. I love that we can celebrate a simple holiday with a simple Christian message.
The kids also got a goody bag with tattoos, St Patrick's Day buttons, green shoestring licorice, green mini marshmallows, green jelly bellys and mint Aero chocolate bars. They were a big hit. Simple and sweet!
