Happy St. Patricks Day!
Some of you may know, I am very big on holidays. Actually anything that can be celebrated! I have been known, a time or two, to go a bit over board with parties. I spend way too much money and time and get VERY into it. My sons birthday parties are the worst, but they always end up great!I love having get togethers, BBQ's, parties, whatever! The work is always worth it. Well St. Patty's day is no exception! Here are a few pictures from throughout the day. We had fun!
There is a very funny story behind these gold coins he has. When he got in the car from me picking him up from school today, this is what he said.
Me: "What did you do at school today?"
Him: "Ummmmmm, we made those green smoothie things, ya know with the green stuff and green ice cream and whip cream...."
Me: "Oh Fun! Yummy!"
Him: "yeah, and we went on a hunt for gold coins. We had clues and had to find where the Canadians hide the coins!!!"
Me: " Uh, What?? The Canadians??
Him: "You know the little guys that play the tricks on you and they have gold coins?"
Me: "ohhhhhh, you mean leprechauns??" (laughing uncontrollably, seriously I had tears!)
Him: "oh yeah!! Leprechauns!!" (giggle giggle)
We had a very yummy lunch!
