Luck 'O the Irish

St Patty's Day is one of those holidays that gets overlooked a bit in our house...but last year I was inspired by my friend Katie and her fun traditions! I didn't quite pull it together this year...I'm hoping next year we'll have green eggs or green pancakes or even green milk for breakfast! I did, however...TRY to make the girls matching shirts. I ended up only completing one, unfortunately, they just didnt come together as fast I wanted...but I think it turned out cute. Aube was absolutely against wearing the shirt this morning...but after getting a couple of compliments she now proudly proclaims it's her "favorite shirt". Ü Silly.
I wanted it to say "Lucky Charm" because the girls constantly ask me to buy them "Chucky Arms" and I think that's just hilarious. Buuuut....whodathunk it was a bit time consuming to cut out each individual letter, eek!
I did attempt to make rainbow cupcakes this afternoon for the girls. They turned out pretty cool...but I think I got carpal tunnel putting each color into the cupcake paper!! Totally worth it ;).
And yes...I took a big ole bite out of this for the picture....and a few others. I had to find the one that looked the prettiest!!!
Happy St Patty's Day!!! I hope it's lucky for you all!!

The lucky t-shirt is very cute! I couldn't even convince my big kids to wear green yesterday. So I gave them random pinches throughout the day!

Yeah, Topher really gets the shaft cuz I am old now. The big kids got green mild etc and I painted shamrocks on the girl's faces so they wouldn't get pinched in school.. good memories.
That cupcake is making me hungry!! It looks so pretty! Save me one........ uh maybe not! And I am thinking about Lucky Arms too......
I am counting down until I meet my newest grandson~~Yipee-skipee!~!!
