I'm still not sure why I like this holiday so much, but I think St. Patrick's day is one of the best holidays ever! The leprechaun came and made his annual visit during the night, left his footprints all over the house, turned the toilet water green, turned the milk green, and left a yummy treat, gold coins, and balloons for the kids. I guess as long as he leaves treats for us we don't mind all of his silly pranks! ;)
My parents came over that night to join us for a GREEN dinner. I got to use my new serving platters that my mom gave me for my birthday. This year the menu included: green slushie drink, green pasta, cucumber finger sandwiches, caesar salad, green beans, green jello, green rolls, green apples and kiwi fruit, and Nana's famous chocolate covered grapes.
We played St. Patrick's Day bingo, then decorated shamrock cookies. It was lots of fun! Can't wait till next year!
