Happy St. Patrick's Day - Go Pinch Someone!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!!! We had a wonderful day yesterday celebrating -today's been pretty quiet, but my friend Angie had all our little playgroup over for a "Green" party in honor of this special occasion. Here are Kaden and Kinsley with "Patrick":)

I just loved this little guy - can't you just see him as the mascot for some commercial or something??? I see him hanging out of a limo sunroof for some reason:) I REALLY wanted to take him home, but he had a date tonight - I hear he has a pretty full schedule this weekend! Ha!

We even had LOTS of green food - green rice crispie treats - see the cute shamrock Angie's mom made, green grapes, green apples, green dip with chips, celery, broccoli and green ranch, green Kool-Aid, green punch, etc. etc.

Angie also had fun crafts for the kids to make like these fruit loop rainbows with marshmallow clouds - Kins loved it! Although, I think more fruit loops were eaten instead of crafted:)

Oh and did I mention the glittery green play-doh! How fun and creative!!!

The boys weren't too "in" to the crafts but enjoyed watching some good old Scooby Doo and chillin' - can't say that I'm suprised, boys will be boys:)!

Then we headed down to see some other cousins of mine and had dinner at Babe's - oh my, if you've never eaten there you are really missing out - they have THE BEST chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, etc. EVER!!! I held nothing back - after all its Spring Break! But I'll be making up for it in cardio all the rest of this week:) This is Kaden and Kinsley doing the "hokey pokey" - they said today that they are so proud of themselves for not getting "shy" - how funny!!!

Aren't their little chicken hats hilarious?? - although, I have to admit I cringed a little at the thought of how many other sweaty little heads they'd probably been on!

Here's a shot of most of the family - my cousin's little girls Averi and Addison, Torrance (her hubby), Millie (my cousin), me, Kinsley, my Aunt Jane, Kaden, my mom, Kai, Jae, and John - it's always fun to be with family!!!! Millie and Torrance it was GREAT to see ya'll!

So how do you celebrate St. Patty's Day? Do you wear green, eat/drink green stuff, pinch those not wearing green (I grew up with this tradition:)), or...have you ever been to Babe's - let's talk about those biscuits with honey and butter?!!! Wowza!

I'm the one who always gets pinched. I forgot it was St. Pat's day, too. Allyson and I were almost the only ones not wearing green.

Babes? Oh, that place is so awesome. We love to take our out-of-town family there when they visit so we can all bust a gut. Yum.
