Happy St. Patrick's Day! We decided to make it a 2 day party since St. Pat's was on a Sunday this year. Yesterday we listened to the Irish Descendants while cleaning the house, had a mini dance party (with a few solo numbers by Andrew that are pretty amusing), and Mike and I watched part of a documentary about Irish pubs while we folded laundry. I know. We're party animals. Click on this link to see Mike and the 2 oldest kids dancing. Pretty darn cute and funny.
And today we had green eggs, Irish porridge, green apples, and toast for breakfast.
|FYI, that's cheese on the eggs. (Orange and green - English and Irish. Ha, I love me.)|
|Irish porridge is basically steel oats. Tastes just like regular oatmeal, only chewier. And somehow, Irishy-er. (Not a real word.)|
|I picked up this little guy a couple years ago at a yard sale for a couple bucks. I thought he was so cute! Emily apparently agreed. "Woah! Das coooool!"|
|Here's our nod to a little rainbow. Turns out, my kids love decorations, and I really don't have any St. Pat's decorations. So we got inventive.|
|Emmie's hair for church today. Stinking adorable, I gotta say.|
|And our dinner! Corned beef and cabbage. Turns out, it is REALLY hard to get a decent picture of corned beef and cabbage. I failed. But it tasted really good!|
|And lime popsicles for dessert. Andrew called them icicles, which I thought was mighty cute. Charlie is looking cute and tiny here, too.|
|The menu for the day. I was impressed that we made all of this (minus the soda bread) without the use of our stove and oven. Well, Go Braugh or Go Home.|
How did you spend your day?
