Happy St. Patrick's Day

...from my son, Patrick!

Ever since Patrick was born, I have had a desire to do something special for St. Patrick's day. Last year, Patrick really thought that the day was all about him and I had to explain the it was in honor of SAINT Patrick (and frankly he was no saint!). This year the Leprechauns visited us and upset some of the furniture and turned our milk green. I told Patrick that if he actually caught a leprechaun, he would get his fortune so he hunted all morning for one but was unsuccessful.

To celebrate the day, we had a fun brunch of green pancakes with green syrup, green applesauce, fried bologna, and green milk. While we feasted, we watched the Veggie Tales St. Patrick flannelgraph story (which is a short on the Sumo of the Opera video). It is one of my all time fave Veggie Tales. It is funny and very informative.

Tonight we will celebrate with corned beef and cabbage and some good friends are coming over.

Hope you are all having a great day!
