The day of green-wearing has past... and today I wore pink, even though it is not April yet. I suppose we made the most of the St. Patty's Day celebration; we dragged it on for days! The Parade on Saturday... corned beef and cabbage on Tuesday... and Reuben's last night. And we snacked in between meals! Camden & I got crafty in the kitchen... and it was fun to have a helper. I saw the pretzel idea on someone's blog (I wish I knew where!) and it was easy enough to grab the necessary items as I was running through the grocery store to pick up yet another prescription. And these silly Peeps? That came about when McDonald's was out of Shamrock shakes. On St. Patrick's Day? A crime! So I dreamed up these Peeps... and Cam and I assembled them, best we could. His smile was priceless.
Eric was the best husband ever (again!) and had a steaming loaf of Michelle's Chocolate Chip Irish Soda Bread baking when I got home from work... delicious! And after a snack, or two... we shared dinner with friends. Everyone's eyes were smiling... happy to be relaxing and laughing. And at the end of the night, because it is tradition, we lifted these oh-so-sentimental glasses in a toast... to St. Patrick's Day.
So, until next year... keep the rainbows wrapped around your hearts and shamrocks under your feet!
