One of the book stores near us had a St. Patty’s Day story hour & craft time for kids, so we met some friends there and grabbed lunch after. And sent silly selfies to dad while he was in New York for meetings. Eloise is loving life right now, maybe all she ever wanted this whole time was to walk? I am convinced she hated being a baby.
St. Patrick’s Day
We always celebrate every holiday with a festive breakfast, I think it is a fun & easy way to get your kids excited about something & it sets the mood for the day. I have been wanting to try a homemade poptart recipe for years, so I decided it would be a fun shamrock style breakfast. I made the dough the night before, super easy & quick, then just rolled it out and put it in between two sheets of wax paper. In the morning, we just cut them out, filled them with some raspberry jam & put them in the oven. Harper loves to frost & decorate our baked goods, so she was a happy camper!! She concentrates so hard, it cracks me up. Eloise could have cared less, she just wanted a banana.
We ended the night with Brandon coming home just in time for the girls’ bedtime. He scared the shit out of us by bursting in early during bath time, but we forgive him because he brought ice cream. 😉 So we made the most of the amazing weather & hung out on the patio in our pajamas for a bit. The first thing Harper told him when he came in was “good job for wearing green!”, she get it from her mama!
Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s Day filled with lots of love & luck! XO5
