Lucky Us

Between care packages from Grandma, a bona fide Irishman as parish (and school) pastor, and a house full of Irish fans, we make sure to thoroughly embrace St. Patrick's Day/Green Day at school. Danny is particularly enthusiastic about this event, working hard on a "Top o' the mornin' to you!" spoken with a respectable brogue.
Laura had absolutely no idea why I was dressing her with such care today, but she was more than willing to go along with it. Of late she has taken an interest in pony tails, which is helpful since her hair is at a truly chaotic stage these days. (Just waiting for the bangs to grow out.) Since she had music class this morning, it was all the excuse I needed to extend the Green Day festivities to her wardrobe as well.
Setting a trap full of shiny items for a leprechaun.
St. Patrick appears to be smiling on all of us, as he has given us a weekend filled with lovely, warm weather unlike anything we've seen in a loooong while.  So as usual, we are lucky, blessed, and happy!
Is that a leprechaun in the bushes?
