Happy St. Patty's Day!

I found this mailbox last week and thought I'd take a pic to use for today's blog.

I think this is my mom's favorite holiday (other than Christmas). We are Irish descendants, so it's also a heritage thing for us. I enjoy the holiday too, but not as much asMom. When I was a kid, we had to make sure we were wearing green when we went to bed the night before, or else she'd sneak in before the alarm went off and pinch us in our sleep. Thus, I believe in giving my kids an hour lee-way, but after that: It's all fair!

Here's a pic of the kids in their green!

I started pinching my husband at midnight. I'm going to dress the baby in green RIGHT NOW and post a picture! Well, when she gets up from her nap anyway.

Raea was so concerned about not getting pinched that she made everyone sleep in green on Sunday. She was dressed in green from head to toe, including her underwear and green milk for cereal.

Love the green!

I totally blew it. Thought all weekend about it being Monday, and then totally forgot to wear green. Luckily I did not get pinched. I even went home after work, changed into casual wear for dinner with friends, and STILL forgot to wear green!

My little leprechauns are as cute as can be. This St. Patrick's day I helped Aunt Linda serve 100 people - corn beef, cabbage, mashed potatos & gravy. Wow what a celebration. Had Harp beer too. And FYI - Nikkol had green milk for the kids while I visited with her family... so it's not just your Mom that likes to have fun on St. Patricks day.......
