The Luck of the Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We had a laid back St. Patrick's Day. To be honest, we didn't do much to celebrate. Grant is Irish, and loves St. Patrick's Day. He and his brother did go out after work today. I'm not Irish, and my family never made a big deal about it. It's just another day to me.

I had high hopes to dye the milk green, bake shamrock cookies, and hide gold candy coins, but failed to follow through. We all wore green, and went about our normal day. Luckily, a leprechaun visited Dylan's school overnight, and left him some candy coins.

It was a gorgeous St. Patrick's Day. After school, we went over to my best friend's house for a visit. The kids had a great time playing outside. It was so warm and sunny!

When we came home, both kids were tired. Dylan spent some quiet time playing Wii.

Even though it was too late for a nap, my sweet Irish princess ended up falling asleep while watching Dylan play his game.

When she woke up, we had some pizza, and spent another hour outside. We played baseball, played on the swingset (which we bought one year ago today-great investment!), and took a walk up to the farm behind our house.

We are really loving these beautiful, (almost) Spring days!

When Grant came back from drinking green beer, I took the annual Irish picture. Non-Irish aren't allowed. ;)

I always think that Lexie is a mini-me, but sometimes, when I see her next to Grant, I think she looks a lot like him! Definitely the eyes and nose!

Grant's day did not end so lucky. He built his own computer on Dell's website, and ordered it over a month ago. It was supposed to ship out today, but he didn't get a shipping confirmation. He checked the order status, and saw that the order was canceled! He has been eagerly waiting for a month, and they just now canceled it. He called customer service, but got transferred three times, then put on hold, and disconnected. When he called back, he got an automated message saying that they were now closed. Needless to say, he was very angry and disappointed, and just ended up going to bed. I feel so bad for him. Isn't that crappy service?!?

Better luck next year, I guess! I'll set aside green food coloring and green icing for the cookies, so I'm prepared!

  6. That is such a sweet picture! I think Dell needs a Letter of Intent with Foursons, because think about it...how many people reading/writing blogs might just use a Dell computer. I'm just saying.
