Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Yes, this post is a day late, but I just didn't get to it before bedtime last night.  Even if it is 'old news', it's in my head, so here it is!  :)

We started our St. Patrick's day celebration at bedtime Monday night by reading a little about St. Patrick so we'd know what we were celebrating.  I learned some interesting new things!  

Then the boys went to bed wearing green pj's so they'd wake up wearing green.  :)

Of course, no proper St. Patrick's Day celebration is complete without a green breakfast, so I made green shamrock pancakes.  :) 

The afternoon turned out to be good for kite flying, so our new kite took its maiden voyage.  :)

I love this picture!
After supper we went to see our friends whose new baby arrived just 5 days ago!  Alan wanted to help.  :)
If you want the 'baby' of your family to look big, just put them next to a newborn.  Alan went from baby to kid in an instant!

Sorry I don't have a better picture of the star of the hour, the actual
baby - after enjoying Alan 'helping' so much and taking a couple of pics of that, I didn't want to keep putting the flash in poor baby's eyes!  :)

And at this moment my boys are out trying the kite again... I think I'll go join them!  Do you ever go kite flying this time of year?

Looks like a great glad kite flyin' days are here! Glad you had a fun "green" day - the pancakes were cute!

St. Patricks day came and went without a mention at my house. I guess I was a bah humbug or something. As for my post about the bed...I wouldn't rush the ending of the crib! It is nice to be able to decide when to get them out! I am sure you remember that. Parker didn't know for months that he could get out of his big bed by himself and I sure didn't tell him. He would just wait for me to come get him. Then one day I woke to find him eating cheetohs in daddy's chair and I realized what I had done :)

I know! It's so sad when we realize our youngest isn't a "baby" anymore. :(

But I won't accept that, nope I won't! ;-)
