St. PADDY’s day and warm weather

Well apparently us Americans have been saying St. Patty’s day, but really if we are going to shorten it, it is suppose to be St. Paddy’s day. (because Patty is short from Patrica and Paddy is short for Patrick, who knew!? 🙂 )

Anyways, since all the St. Patrick’s day festivities were over the weekend, I completely forgot that Monday was actually St. Patrick’s day, so I quickly pulled out some things green for crafts with the kids, I made some green popcorn balls for snack, and i made delicious asparagus to add bright green to our dinner. (I thought about making green eggs, but I know Rhem would not touch it if they were green, so I opt out of that lol)

We also have been enjoying some nice weather the last few days, causing snow to melt away and the ground to dry up (well in some places) allowing kids time to go out and play. It has been WONDERFUL. Unfortantly today is another chilly day, with light rain/snow in the air, but the next two days will be in the mid-high 50’s! YAY (this is glorious news for us midwesters that have been stuck in a very cold, snowy winter!)

Hadiley is LOVING the outdoors, since she has got a glimpse of life outside, she now stands at the window whining and longing for running around in the grass and going on walks. I cannot wait until the winter is far behind us and for summer’s hot days and playing in the water surround us. It will come. I must believe this. (although another chance of snow on Monday takes a little of that hope away. Sigh. )

In other news. SIX days until we find out if our new little arrow will rock a BOW in her hair, or a BOW-TIE on his neck. 🙂
