Happy St. Patrick's Day

st. patrick's day girlHope you and yours are having a fun St. Patrick's Day!

We have a wee bit o' fun. There's the wearin' of the green -- if you don't you'll surely be pinched around here with the two mischievous leprechauns I live with!

The Sweet Girl has an Irish first name, so we tease her all morning before school, talking in an Irish accent, and trying to pinch her before she can get her green things on.

I also like to plan a little Irish tom-foolery for dinner, but this year, we're a little subdued from surviving the plague getting over the flu. No creative dinner this year, but potatoes are on the menu, and I know we'll at least have some mint chocolate ice cream for dessert.  I know, I'm so Martha!

Although... these shamrock shakes and Elena's Leprechaun Slush look like fun for next year.

What fun things do you and your family do on  St. Patrick's Day?

We had a good day. The leprechauns found us and left bars of gold sprinkled all over the yard, (Hershey's Nuggets) and dinner was delish.
