Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We had a great day! The weather was gorgeous. 60+ degrees and sunny! Spring is on the way! Dylan and Lexie were really into St. Patrick's Day this year. I tried to explain about their Irish heritage (all from their daddy), but they were more into the fun aspect of the day!

We started out our day with a breakfast of green pancakes. Even my picky eater joined in, although hers had to be a bit more brown!

The kids put on their green clothes, and began hugging and dancing around the living room! Talk about cuteness overload!

When Dylan got home from school, we went to their favorite park. They were so happy to get outside after weeks of being cooped up indoors!

After we got home from the park, the kids and I had a nice, sunlit dinner. I was planning on serving Lucky Charms with green jello for dessert, but Dylan wanted something better. (Really? Take the offer, kid! Lucky Charms for dinner never happens!) He chowed down on rice, popcorn shrimp, and green milk, while Lexie ate the Lucky Charms. The kids and I made the green jello/cool whip dessert this morning, and it was a hit with Dylan, but not with Lexie. She took one bite, and pushed it away. At least she tried!

Shortly after dinner, I found my wee Irish lass passed out on the couch. The day was too much fun for her!

Even though Dylan didn't trap a leprechaun this year, he did have some luck. He got to feel Nugget kick for the first time, and the smile on his face when it happened melted my heart! He kissed my belly, and said, "I love Nugget SO MUCH!"

While I'd love to share a picture of Grant with his Irish lad and lass, I can't. He's currently celebrating his Irish heritage with his brother! And, well, the lass is in bed!

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

  8. I love Lexi's dress! I got the same one for Arielle, now it just has to get warm enough to put it on her! Oh and even I would eat lucky charms for dinner if given the chance!
