Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Grant me a sense of humor, Lord,

The saving grace to see a joke,

To win some happiness from life,

And pass it on to other folk.

As luck of the Irish would have it we enjoyed hanging out with friends today, the day before St. Patrick’s Day, so we had an Irish themed play date!

We served Annie’s Mac and Cheese from a “Pot of Gold” for our play date today.
The kiddos each had a personal “pot of gold” to eat their Mac and Cheese out of.
Finally, I made jello jigglers and it worked!! This was the first time it actually worked. Funny, I can decorate an intricate cookie; I have the patience for fancy cupcakes, and can even make a mean lasagna, but Jello, that’s what I have issues with??
We served grapes, green pepper slices, and cucumber water along with the “Pot of Gold”.
And yes, in case you were wondering, the foam ball did topple over once; it can be tricky placing each cookie just so.
Our little leprechaun, patiently holding an umbrella waiting for the rain so that there will be a rainbow and a pot of gold at the end of it…so endearing.
Our little lady is rocking the Shamrocks!!
I had a difficult time capturing this little leprechaun. She was having a blast with her choo choo. She kept going…..
and going…
and going.

Fun craft to do with the kiddos…http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/try-on-leprechaun-985020/
Mommy really lucked out and had a chance to hang out with a longtime friend this evening over some yummy cupcakes. What better way to chat than over cupcakes? (No, we did not eat them all, we will be sharing with family and friends tomorrow, gosh, what kind of person do you think I am?)
Chocolate and almond cupcakes, yum!!

“May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.”
