It's still March...

...and so I have to post about St. Patrick's Day before this month is over. I have to do it for posterity, sorry.

We celebrated with the Samps minus Mike because he was in Utah. His new job is ruining my life, but that is another story for another post...
We had our yummy traditional green meal. That included green drinks...kool aid for kids, lime aid for grown ups.

We had green applesauce, green asparagus and meatballs with green rice. Amy made some sugar cookies that were so good I would totally pay money for them. Good thing she only made half a batch, I could have easily ate a whole batch myself!

I thought I took more pictures than this, but I guess not. So here is one more picture of the kids doing "cheers".

I was the only one who didn't dress in green. I think this was the first year that I can ever remember that I didn't wear it. I had every intention of getting out of my sweats but it just didn't happen. I didn't even get to work out that day! Oh well, my girls thought it was great because they got to pinch me. Next year I hope to be more festive.
So March is almost over and exactly one month from now A and I will be in Hawaii. He surprised me with this trip back in June on our anniversary. Go here to relive that with me. When I want to cry because of the gray skies and rain storms I think of sunshine and sand that await me in a few weeks. Why does it have to be so yucky during Spring Break! WHY!? It's gonna be a long week friends, a very long week.

Our Spring Break is next week. I am already shaking in my boots...

I mean...if I were wearing boots...

The green meal looks like it was fun. I want some Amy cookies...they sound fantastic!

You actually probably made the day even more special for your girls by not wearing green. I know they loved pinching you. Mine love to pinch me.
