Happy St Patricks Day

17 Mar

The big Irish day is here.

Jared and I wanted to do a little something special with the girls.  All the big St Patty’s Day festivities are either during nap time (parade) or during bedtime (concerts, pubs etc) so we decided to make our own fun — Go out for breakfast, all decked out in our green.

Breakfast is the only meal that Aleah will seriously eat.  And boy does she eat!  Since Aleah eats a good breakfast we always have a big one.  Our regular choices include pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, blueberries and oatmeal, scrambled eggs or cinnamon french toast, and  we usually leave the choice up to Aleah.  We have tried giving her cereal for breakfast, but  by 9:30 she has melted down and we remember why we do big breakfasts.

Jared and I want a little break from the morning routine so we are treating ourselves and the kids to a breakfast out.

Nana and Papa (Jared’s parents) sent the girls a couple cute shirts a few days ago:

Since we had the shirts, all I had to do was make a couple cute skirts to go with them.  I went digging through my  bins of fabric and clothes I don’t want anymore and found these.

A kelly green sweater from Gap I bought for $4 at a thrift store for Aleah’s skirt.  And a darker green fleece I had from high school that I turned into a skirt for Soph.

Aren’t they so cute and Irish?

Hope everyone has a great day full of tricks, leprechauns, green, family and food!
