Happy St. Patty's Day!!!

Happy St. Patty's Day, from our two little leprechauns!

Our beloved Miss Jenny is studying in England this semester, and here are the girls, holding a postcard she sent them from Ireland.

The girls have been wearing their headbands for a few days now, and we've been reading our lone St. Patrick's Day book for a couple of weeks.  We don't have any big plans for the day, but I'm looking to interject a few fun activities here and there.

For breakfast, I [laboriously] made French toast using my shamrock cookie cutter.  I sprinkled GREEN parsley on the girls' scrambled eggs, and they thought that was pretty special, too.

We made a special trip to the candy store yesterday to procure GREEN M&Ms.  I'm planning for the girls to help me make these pretzel trefoils later in the morning:

(These are the ones I made last year...before a generous blogger friend suggested that I might find green M&Ms at the candy store...which sure beats sorting through the TWO BAGS of regular M&Ms like I did last year.  And of course then somebody had to eat all the non-green was a real hardship!)

Last week the girls and I made some St. Patty's Day cards.  The girls used watercolors to paint some cardstock green.  They used my heart punch, and then we glued those in the shape of a shamrock.  I'm not going to show a picture, though, as we haven't quite made it to the mailbox.  ;)

For lunch, I'm planning GREEN...steamed zucchini, broccoli, cucumbers, avocados, green grapes, and these shamrock chips:

(I found these on Pinterest, and I have my spinach tortillas ready and waiting!)

And for supper, if I get my act in gear, we'll have GREEN split pea soup. 

It's nothing too elaborate, but I love any excuse for some holiday fun!

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hands.

Wishing you and your leprechauns a blessed day!!!
