Luck 'o the Irish

This week started out with high fevers, flushed cheeks and a postponed notice for our 2nd annual St. Patrick's Day play-date/party. We finally recovered and had the party at the end of the week. No one seemed to mind celebrating on a day other than the 17th, but it does explain how late this post is. My husband's family is lucky to be Irish all year long, so I guess it's ok to celebrate that any time.

Paddy's picnic, we had green Jello jigglers to eat with our fingers and some moms brought green rice krispies too!

Leprechaun footprints to follow to the gold...

This is our hunt for leprechaun gold, we hid gold covered candies and coins around the bedroom for everyone to hunt. Something that worked really well was all the kids put their finds in a big bowl together, then divided it up evenly at the end of the game.
We sent balloons and gold home with our guests and hopefully early bedtimes after all the heavy-duty playing.
