St. Patrick's Day!

The kids woke up to green pancakes yesterday, in celebration of St. Patricks Day.

Maddie wasn't too thrilled with the color green but Hunter and Emily didn't seem to care. Last year I turned the milk green and that was a little too much for everyone so I didn't do that again.

Hunter's been seeing commercials for Sorry on tv lately. We were given the game several years ago and have never opened it. So I pulled it out and we played several times througout the day.

For dinner I had the kids help me make green shamrock bread to go with dinner.

Hunter made Mr. St. Patrick himself to go along with the shamrocks.

And for dinner we had leperchaun's treasure (green jello with pineapple and mandarin oranges), chicken, broccoli and rice casserole, shamrock bread and a green leperchaun's drink (green sherbert with sprite). After dinner the kids decorated green cupcakes with green frosting and sprinkles. By bed time they were asking if we could do this again tommorrow! I'm glad they had an enjoyable day.

green green and more green. I kept thinking as we approached st. patty's that I would do a fun green breakfast or something, but we had so much going on- I forgot breakfast and later there wasn't time for anything. Carlaya did wear all green to preschool and I sported green too. :)
Maybe next year........

Look how fun you are... My kids got the green pancakes w/green milk and I had the dinner all planned out, but McDonalds was just calling our name instead. See how lame I am.... I love being able to keep up on how your family is doing!

Hehehe! We had green pancakes for breakfast too! It's our yearly tradition. But this year we also the the "traditional" Irish dinner of corned beef, potatoes, carrots and cabbage. It was really good, so I think we'll do that every year as well. :)
