Happy St. Patty's Day! Not that we're Irish, but we need an excuse to celebrate. Though, I have been asked occasionally if we have an Irish background based on the spelling of my kids' names. Anyway.
The kids played in the backyard while I grilled porkchops. They love when we 'cook outside', cause that's automatic outside time for them!
Treasure of the day:
Kaliese was visited by a Leprechaun at school today. Apparently he gave them all chocolate gold coins and they made a cute hat. You know, its a common analogy that moms wear many different hats: a cook, driver, maid, teacher, etc. But very few of us have such a tangible display to show for all our efforts as this:
And all of them have meaning: the sombrero from Barcelona, the princess hat from the Renaissance Festival, the cowboy hat from her 3rd birthday, the tinkerbell santa hat from grandma Bera, the clown hat from Ringling Bros...not to mention the ones she makes herself: her first day of school, the indian hat from Thanksgiving, the chinese hat from the chinese new year, and of course, her shamrock hat. Oh and on her desk is her 100 days of school hat! What memories! And all this at age 5!
