St. Patty's Day!

Growing up my mom always decorated and fed us according to even the smallest holiday....St. Patrick's Day included. Every year we had a green meal and we usually had a fun treat at our plate for either breakfast or dinner. What a great tradition. I've tried to keep this up with my own family. Unfortunately yesterday I didn't even realize it was St. Patrick's day! (I didn't even have ANY green on!) Sad! Luckily Amber called and reminded me so I threw together a green meal (spinach tortellini with green alfredo, fruit salad (green fruit only), french bread with green butter, and green sugar cookies) and we had Megan and Jeff over for Dinner. I LOVE holidays!

You are cute. Your kids will love it. Just don't die the milk green. My step mom did that one year and I still have a hard time drinking milk.
