My Pots of Gold

I have been gone from home quite a bit lately, attending to details of my parents move.

I have missed my grands!

So after flying home yesterday, a few quick texts later we had arranged lunch at Grandma's today.
We celebrated the green a little early.

The table could not be simpler.
{I notice the tag on the beanie ~ cut it off already!}

Our menu was the yummy shamrock cheese ravioli from Costco.  Sorry no pic, but it is cute and yummy.  We also had green grapes and some Lucky Charms as a starter:-)

These rainbow drinks were so fun ~ the kids loved them.
All I did was cut up popsicles and layer them in the glass.
They are frosty as I had done them in advance but if you look at the pics of the kids toasting, you will see how bright and colorful the drinks were.

The layers stayed together and the colors didn't get all muddy.

After lunch they followed the clues left by Lucky the Leprechaun to find the Pot O' Gold.

Oh boy, look at the loot:-)

After all of that excitement the kids headed outside.

It was nearly 90 today and they had fun in the yard.  Elizabeth took down the Christmas decor in the playhouse and gave it a little spring makeover.

Just in time too, as next week is Palm Sunday.  I absolutely can not believe it is here so quickly.
I have so much I want to do before then.

But I was delighted today to spend some time with these sweet faces.
They are growing up so fast!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hey Sue- wow- I'm with Jen- that is quite the party- the kids had to have been thrilled with your creative and colorful ideas. I just perused your book list and totally enthralled with your reviews and thoughts on them- thank you for sharing- love the Henri Nouwen book!

Love your blog, especially you and the Grands. We are going to be Grandparents to our first in a month and 2nd in August. Love all your traditions. Where did you get your shamrock plates, they are so cute.

Cute as always! The kids had a blast!

That is all so cute, and I am definitely going to remember the rainbow dessert with the popsicles.

Won't it be fun to be adding another blessed granddaughter to your fold?
