Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Irish Saying

My kiddos are out of school for spring break this week. We are planning a trip to the zoo (picking the coldest day, so we're not there with everybody else in KC), also visiting a friends farm and few other fun things. Kaitlyn is home for spring break but is working most of the week at the rec center.


Irish Blessing

I couldn't find my St. Patrick's day prims this year. I think they were stuck in with something else or somebody moved the boxes around. I'll probably find them when I unpack the Easter prims.  On my list of projects was to make a big shamrock out of muslin and paint it green, stuff it, and hang it on the door, maybe I'll do that today.


Ah, the luck of the Irish

Look at this poor cat isn't he cute. We had Ruben sandwiches yesterday and they were wonderful! I'm going to make some Irish soda bread today. What are you doing for St. Paddy's day?

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

just watching the snow fall ...

This is what we did yesterday and last night. We were suppose to have a big snow storm 5-9 inches, we didn't get anywhere near that, I was trying to find out how much we did get and apparently we still might be getting more. They cancelled church last night, anticipating that it would be worse. This morning we had sleet coming down and so far our street has not been plowed, which is unusual because ours is always done early. It's about 2 degrees out and we aren't going anywhere.

I think everybody is tired of snow and ready for spring. I wanted this last snow, don't tell anyone!

I'm still working on getting my pictures on the computer. Hopefully soon.
