I am a little bummed that I got sick (just a cold, thank goodness) right around this holiday because I didn’t end up making some of the fun things I had planned. Even so, we still had a lot of fun on St. Patrick’s Day (or as Jackson likes to say “Happy Green Day”).
We started off the morning by surprising the kids with some Leprechaun Lucky Charms & Green Milk for breakfast. It was our first time trying this out, and it was a huge hit with the kids. While I don’t think we will do it every year (they were a little crazy with all the sugar I think), it was still fun.
After church we had a yummy lunch meal of Green Eggs & Ham, and dad even made some yummy toast & hashbrowns to go with it. The kids liked helping make the meal.
After lunch we went over to Gma and Gpas for a fun St. Patrick’s Day family party. Before dinner the kids went on a leprechaun treasure hunt outside. The leprechauns left little clues for all the grandkids so they could all find their own leprechaun golden (chocolate) coins. Mmmm. (Thanks Gma & Cousin Sara).
And of course I have to add a cute picture of Lanie with her cute cousins, all in matching Rainbow shirts they got for Christmas from Gma & Gpa. They fit in perfectly for the Irish holiday.
