I hope my kids are excited for St. Patty's Day. They are all decked out in their green today and my mom even sent the girls little jeweled shamrocks to wear on their faces. Super cute. The girls love them. I even had to wear some. Thanks, Mom. Everyone got socks and stickers, as well. We are having Green Eggs and Ham . Green Orange Juice . Toast with Green Butter for breakfast.

Happy St. Patrick's Day
I love St. Patty's Day. I remember celebrating it last year with lots of friends who came over for breakfast. Green food galore!
My mom was born on St. Patty's Day so this was a huge deal growing up. Happy Birthday, Mom! We would start our day off with Green Eggs and Ham . Green Oatmeal . Green French Toast . Green Butter . Green Orange Juice . Green Milk . and a special Green Gift from mom to us to wear to school. I loved seeing all the things she could think of to dye green. For dinner we always had Green Irish Soda Bread . Green Salad complete with Green Peas (yuk) . Cornbeef and Cabbage . and sometimes a Green Jell-o Salad . I loved these dinners.
After we dropped the kids off at school, M and F helped me get some potatoes and dessert at Smiths. We decided on St. Patrick's Day sugar cookies. You all know the ones I'm talking about. The huge, super soft, lots of yummy icing on top! Love those cookies. Then it was home to take a shower, make the kids lunch, and get M to school. F and I came home and while he shot baskets, and sang 'Getcha Head in the Game', I made cards for Card Swap. Busy, busy and I ran out of flowers. I'll have to get some later. I also need to work on the kids Easter project. I am making them all crayon rolls. Thanks to Mary's friend who is so creative...Jaime, I think is her name. Anyway cute idea and I will post them when I am done. Instead of using crayons I am using Twistables. I hate when the kids break and take the wrappers off the crayons. I have thrown so many crayons away because of that.
For dinner I am making Cornbeef and Cabbage. An Irish tradition. Green Bean Casserole, Larry's Roasted Birthday Potatoes, Green Pineapple Juice, and Irish Soda Bread with Green Butter. Yummy. Brandon says he's coming home with a pizza. He thinks he's funny. I hope you all had a great St. Patty's Day.
