Saint Patricks Day 2012

Our family had a wee bit o' fun this Saint Patty's day!! WARNING: it may leave you seeing green....

Lala began her festivities with a green bubble bath (Ellie joined in the fun). Splashes, suds, and smooches set the scene. We bought some bath crayons, and tried out the green one of course!!

The breakfast menu was green egg scramble with spinach and turkey with sides of green: apple sauce, cottage cheese, & milk. Next year I plan to do Lucky charms, clover green pancakes, oatmeal.

I painted my nails last minute green with one accent nail on each hand-a rainbow.

We made a very healthy green smoothie! It had banana, yogurt, frozen mango, apple, pineapple, kiwi, broccoli, spinach, spirulina, green tea, wheat grass, and barley grass. I kid you not- it was delightful!!

All week I had our table set up to get in the spirit!

Green Velvet Cupcake!!! (We ran low on green coloring, next year they will be more vibrant green.) They were ├╝ber scrumptious! Green cream cheese frosting to top them off.

Lala's lunch was a leprechaun sandwich. Turkey on whole wheat, carrot shavings for the hair/beard (held on by cream cheese), raisin eyes, cheese nose, red pepper lips, green bell pepper hat, seaweed belt, and cheese buckle!! We made her a rainbow of fruit with vanilla yogurt clouds. She LOVED it.

Earlier in the week I made lala and Kiki (her doll) matching felt hair accessories and rainbow bead necklaces. Super simply, quick, and adorable little crafts!

To further enjoy the holiday I played Irish music, we went on a walk in nature to see green and rainbow colors. My husband and I enjoyed the luxury of one green beer each.

May the road rise up to greet you... : )
