Happy St. Patricks Day!


Not my favorite holiday. I never remember to wear green and I don't like getting pinched. Infact, I woke up by Parker pinching me first thing in the morning. I have found, however, that holidays are much more fun with Parker around. Even this one :)


We had green waffles and milk for breakfast(and green baby oatmeal for Tage)!

When Parker got home from preschool he found a note from a Leprechaun on our door. Aparently the creepy little guy broke into our house while we were gone and left some clues for Parker to find some of his buried treasure. I cannot comment on Parker's outfit. Atleast he had green on!

Some of the treasure that was found in our backyard

We finished the day with a green bubble bath. It's great how easily amused kids can be.

Oh Jill- seriously what is that green outfit about? Those boots are killing me! I can't stop laughing... I LOVE IT! It's the best that you actually let him wear it, but then to let the rest of us witness the outfit....that's a good mom right there!

Really though, what a handsome little leprechan! Fun pics.

I am with you, I hated this holiday until I had "kids." Well Beckham is too little to play this holiday, but my students make it so fun. A Leprechaun destroys our classroom and leads the students on a treasure hunt for gold too. Gotta love kids!

Jill--

Hey I have Photoshop cs3 BUT google how to install actions for elements and something should pop up. Sure I could give you some tips but we would have to get together...there is a website and I bought a tutorial on photo editing and it ROCKED...the website is www.jessicasprague.com and she gears it towards whatever you have ie photo elements!! But I would consider getting photoshop cs3 (it's pricy--have a student buy it for you and its cheaper) but it works better with other peoples actions!!

whatever, miss I am not diggin st patty's day. You are now the Queen of it. I mean, WHO thinks of green bathwater? Really?

My boys are at the age where they want to wear green, but they can't make it obvious. Ben's CTR ring was KILLER this year.. and Luke wore green underwear and wasn't shy about showing it off after he got pinched. I would rather have them wearing green rain boots.
