St. Paddy's Day Fun

Remember this is the next-to-last day to enter my SPRING GIVEAWAY!! Go here to enter!!
********************************


I hope you had a fun St. Patrick's day~we sure did! We created some great memories and fun traditions this year.

We gave the kiddos some {chocolate} gold coins to start the day:) Then we did a little study on St. Patrick himself. Veggie Tales has a great short video about him on The Sumo of the Opera video. We also checked out a few more videos online.

We enjoyed some coloring pages to celebrate the day, while listening to some Irish music. I dug through my cd's and found some Enya and also a great worship cd from Hosanna that was recorded in Belfast with Robin Mark.


We enjoyed corned beef with veggies and Irish soda bread for dinner. It was very good! It was the first time I've ever cooked corned beef, although I'm a big fan of Ruben sandwiches. Mr. B especially loved the beef! The soda bread was interesting, sort of like a big biscuit. But the most fun {and yummiest} was our rainbow cake! You can read more about that here.

The *funny* of the day: After church Mr. B said that not many in his class were wearing green, so...he pinched them! :)
