Irish Lads and Lasses

Another St. Patrick's Day has come and gone!

I am Irish by marriage.  I never really celebrated the holiday until I met Grant.  When I say celebrate, I mean wear green!

We don't really do much on St. Patrick's Day other than wear green and eat St. Patrick's Day themed foods.  Grant will celebrate with an Irish beer or two, but the closest I come to drinking is using Bailey's Irish Cream Coffee Creamer!

We don't do leprechaun traps, we don't have naughty leprechauns wrecking our house, and when St. Patrick's Day falls on a school day, we don't have time for an elaborate breakfast.

This year it did fall on a school day. We have a 25 minute time slot for getting ready in the morning. What's a girl to do?  Turn to classic Lucky Charms and Froot Loops, of course!!!

I take pictures of my kids every day, but holidays are special.  This St. Patrick's Day called for a casual photoshoot!   It was, after all, Liam's first St. Patrick's Day.  It had to be documented!

I did pack a special snack in Dylan and Lexie's lunch boxes, and I did get a bit more creative with dinner.  The kids had a Froot Loop and marshmallow rainbow appetizer and we all had green milkshakes!

It was a nice St. Patrick's Day.  We didn't do much, but any day spent with our four little loves is special!

Liam was the HAPPIEST little leprechaun on his first St. Patrick's Day!

All I can say is that we are so lucky and so blessed!
