Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I had a great St. Patrick's Day with my two little leprechauns!

We kicked off the celebration by making some sugar cookies. That has become our tradition for every holiday. Unfortunately, our project was off to a rough start. I got a different brand of sugar cookie mix, and it didn't work as well as our regular kind. Yes, I said mix. I am not Betty Crocker, that's for sure! Not only could we not find a shamrock cookie cutter in our 100-count cookie cutter kit, but the cookies would not cut out! So...I just dropped the dough onto the cookie sheet, and we got creative with green frosting and sprinkles!

A certain someone was a little too eager to taste a cookie. She waited very impatiently until they were done. She may not like to eat much, but she loves frosted sugar cookies!

We had a beautiful, end of winter day in Pennsylvania, so we headed outside to soak up the sun.
We played some golf...

Got sand in our pants...

...and in our hair.

Then we headed inside for some contemplating
and some fun.

After such a busy day, we were getting tired. We are Irish (well my kids and hubby are), after all, and we party hard!

We got a great St. Patrick's Day gift for our family today!

We can't wait to see the finished product in our backyard!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Looks like a fun day with the minchkins! I am in love with that swing set!! Where did you get it? Maybe I can convince my hubby that would be a good bithday present for the boy!

  2. I got it at Toys R Us. It's on sale this week! ;)

  3. We have almost exactly the same swing set! If it's the same brand, tell Grant not to get too frustrated...some of the holes and hardware don't match up well. Jason and my dad were able to get it to work though!

  4. What great pics! The cookies look yummy!! What a great swing set! I'm jealous!!

  5. ooooh, all those little cookies look cute, and so do the round decorated edible treats in the first picture.

  6. Can't wait to see the swingset up! Looks like a fun end of winter day!

  7. those are some cute kiddies there!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
