Oh, how lucky we are!

I'm a week late, but here's a quick recap of our St. Patrick's Day!

The kids bring out the best in me and make me want to celebrate every little holiday.  Gone are the days where St. Patrick's Day means green beer and an impending hangover (at least for now, never say never!).  I've also been known in the past to use my eye color as my 'green' on the holiday.  Lame!

Anyhoo, we didn't do anything too extravagant, but we did do a few St. Paddy's inspired things.  After all, my kids are part Irish so I can't deprive them of their holiday!

First up, a photo shoot!  Surprised?  You shouldn't be :)

When we got back from Kindermusik, I got my sous chefs in position and we decided to make some green Cheerio treats.  But not before another photo shoot!

Seriously, how cute are they!?

Redmond was so excited that he got to sit on the counter and put the food coloring into the melted butter and marshmallows.  But, mainly that he got to sit on the counter :)

They turned out great.....and very green!

For dinner, I decided I wanted to start making an Irish or, at the very least, Irish-inspired dinner.  This year I made a Guinness Beef Stew and Irish Soda Bread.  Next year I'll be sure to make myself something too so I'm not just eating bread.  Not that I mind.


I think next year we'll get more into the holiday.  I saw some great ideas for a Leprechaun trap and having a Leprechaun visit while the kids are sleeping.  Why do I have a feeling that this holiday is going to get bigger and bigger every year!? 

Did you do anything special to celebrate?
