Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day {Pictures}

Hope everyone is having a fun weekend celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. We’ve been sick here but we tried to get in some fun so we didn’t totally miss the holiday.

Lucas had a photo shoot for Stories Of Autism in the morning and right at the corner was a St. Patrick’s Day parade so we sat to watch some of it.

Sitting with Nana waiting for the St. Patrick's Day parade to start. {Don't you love their matching green shirts?}

The afternoon was spent sleeping {I’m so sick I napped on the boys floor while they napped in their beds} and then relaxing on the couch while watching some of their favorite shows. When daddy came home they went outside and played in their water table. We ended the day with a special trip to McDonald’s to get a Shamrock Shake.

Linky Love- St. Patty’s Edition (3/14)

FOR CHILDREN:

*Love this St. Patrick’s Day themed sensory tub from ‘No Time For Flashcards’

*Five Green Shamrocks poem and template outline (great toddler/preschool idea)

*Great post from ‘Make and Takes’ called ‘Little Lucky Leprechaun Crafts for St. Patrick’s Day‘. I think we will be making the Pot of Gold :)

FOR EVERYONE:

*St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes from ‘Hoosier Homemade’. These aren’t just any cupcakes though- check out how she puts flavor and color on the inside of the cupcakes. Never seen that done before but so creative!

*While we are talking about Liz from ‘Hoosier Homemade’ you should check out her decorations post. I love the St. Patty’s Day garland.

*’Roots and Wings Co.’ blog has a great idea for Saint Patrick’s Day called “I am lucky” in which their family members write things they are lucky for (similar to thinking about what we are thankful for on Thanksgiving).

*Love this decoration from ‘The Busy Blaine’s’.
