Green, Food and Good Friends

18 Mar

Happy (late) St Patty’s Day everyone.  One of my favorite days of the year.  One meal of the year I don’t have to decide what to make.

Last year the Prince family came to visit us for St Patty’s and we had so much fun we decided to make it an annual event.  This family helped us survive seminary life.  They lived right across the hallway from us and we kept each other sane through many creative adventures.  We are so happy that they will be graduating this spring and get to move on with their lives.  They have three rowdy boys in a tiny three bedroom apartment and can’t wait to get into a real house.  The boys were such a blessing and played wonderfully with Aleah and Sophi. I don’t think I have seen so many games of tag or hide and seek occur in one weekend.  Thanks boys!

I improved this years meal from last years meal.  Rookie mistakes from last year was not making enough food.  This year I made twice as much corned beef and another loaf of irish soda bread.  Almost everything flew off the table so I think it was a successful meal.


Mandy set the lovely table when we were playing outside in the snow

Here are some pictures of our creations:

The day ended with some board games and cuddles.  I love my red heads!
