Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today is an exciting day for our family since the kids and I have Irish blood running through our veins...I am named after the Shannon river that runs through Ireland, after all!

Last night the kids worked together to build the leprechaun trap you see here...isn't it lovely? I think this is a keeper that will be displayed for years to come! Unfortunately for them they didn't catch any leprechauns but did catch a lot of chocolate gold coins!

Then, as they sat down to breakfast they saw a box of Lucky Charms on the table...a treat for our healthy family. And when I poured in their milk, it magically turned green, as did the milk in their glasses (thanks to the drop of green food coloring in the bottom of the bowls and glasses)!

They're now dressed in various shades of green and ready for the remaining festivities planned for the day: shamrock shakes (the only purchase we make at McDonald's each year), shamrock shaped cookies from our favorite bakery, and a dinner party tonight with extended family complete with vegetarian shepard's pie, a salad named 40 Shades of Green after the Johnny Cash song, and of course, Guinness and Bailey's for the adults! I can't wait!

From my family to yours, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
