St. Patricks Day 2011

This year I did things a little different. The kids woke up to a basket of fun foods in green packaging. They had fruit snacks, chips, microwave popcorn, a box of crackers, mike n' ikes and apple juice- juice boxes. This cutie woke up and requested a four leaf clover hair do.

Uh???? This is what I came up with. It ended up being a 3 leaf clover but she was quite pleased with it. The picture really doesn't do it justice. I wanted to take her outside to have the natural light but it was a cold morning and I didn't want to venture outside in jammies quite yet. Come afternoon I just forgot.
Then this cutie, Miss Emily, wanted to show off her hair do that she had requested. She didn't want her hair to be a 3 leaf clover but wanted to wear the new hair clip I had made earlier that week.
For breakfast I forgot to take a picture of our green french toast that we had.

Kory was home and awake for lunch this day and asked for a breakfast food. With him working 5pm to 3am he ususally sleeps through breakfast and wakes up around lunch time and then eats lunch.
So we fixed GREEN swedish pancakes with real whipped cream tinted GREEN and had GREEN fruit kabobs for lunch.

St. Patty's day fell during our spring break this year. The kids had asked to do some projects. This is in one that we did. I forgot to take a picture of my kids final product so I'll show you this one that I found online that gave me the idea in the first place. Very easy project. They turned out cute too.
I also found this idea on line. We did not do this but I thought this would have made a fun teacher gift. Maybe next year I'll be more prepared.
I loved this idea I found online too. I was planning on having the kids do this one later in the day. I went to get my paper plates and realized they were gone. The week before Maddie brought home a note from her teacher asking for some donations of paint and paper plates to make their masks for there up coming play. I didn't send anything in becuase I was already making the 2 butterfly wings. 3 days in a row Maddie came home saying they couldn't make anything cause no one had brought any donations. Knowing I had what the teacher was after I sent everything I had. But come St. Patty's day my supplies for this project were gone.

Oh well. It was for a good cause. I'm definetly going to keep this idea to to do next year.

It's just too cute! I love the beard.

For dinner we had our annual tradition of Corned Beef and Cabbage. Oh my my I LOVE this dinner and so does my family. Somehow a picture of it slipped my mind again. I did remember to catch a picture of the dessert. Green Oreo Pudding with whipped cream and an oreo cookie on top.
Till next year.

Honestly, how do you have time to make ribbons, do their hair, dye pudding green, make all those buckets and do everything else? I hate reading your blog. Hey, we should go camping together sometime in early summer. We thought about Zions next week but April is just a little too cold still. Keep in touch!
