St. Patrick's Day

Some leprechauns stopped by our house despite the possibility of be maimed by Coby, who had  been using their likeness for target practice.

Their shenanigans included tying streamers on all the handles and door knobs in the house, and turning sealed containers of milk green. 

They brought Lucky Charms for everyone, containers of Gazz-its (cheap sticky Floam) for Kai, Coby and Liam, and Glow in the Dark Sea Life for DJ. 

After breakfast, we headed out to a Cub Scout activity. This next week is the food drive, so we tied the donation bags to a bunch of doors in our neighborhood.

Here are all the kiddos in their green glory.

For dessert, we had an Pralie Apple Pie with Honey. A recipe I found The Best of Ireland cookbook. The crust is made with potatoes.

Liam turned 4 . . .

We decorated his room with a cool Cars banner
 and streamers in the door way. 
He wore a "Birthday Boy" badge.

We ate his favorite meals -
Breakfast: German Pancakes
Lunch: Ham sandwich with ketchup & mustard
Snacks: Pretzels and Cranberries
Dinner: Chicken Strips

At Singing Time, his friends sang "Happy Birthday!" and we shared some of Liam's favorite cookies. 

After the boys got home from school, we spent some time taking pictures. Here's one Liam took of us. 

 His present: tickets to a Pirate Party!
more on that later . . .
