Emme made decorations
(try not to discredit her for the backwards S & P's...she gets in a hurry and doesn't think)
This is the "Leprechaun Trap" we left out the night before.
Apparently, if you make a trap and put some money in the bottom of it, you can try to catch a leprechaun. If he does happen to get away, he will leave necklaces and socks.
(Emme's friend from school, Sophia, told her all about it...again, next year, we will be more prepared...)
Here is our green breakfast, complete with green eggs, green pancakes with green syrup and green apple juice...lots and lots of food coloring, made for green tongues too!
Emme, ready for school...Calvin happy to see her go...
For dinner, we went all out with Corned Beef and Cabbage, potatoes and Irish Soda Bread.
Since we don't drink and they don't make an alcohol free version of Guinness, we've got a fancy red root beer and more green apple juice for the kids. (I don't know, green milk might be pushing it a bit too far!)
So, there you have it. We had a fun St. Patrick's Day and did a few traditional Irish things...and our house still smells slightly like cabbage to prove it...
