 Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My Mom is a second generation American, having both sets of grandparents immigrate to America from Ireland.   I grew up hearing such fun stories from my Mom's family...  stories of plates dancing on the walls, leprechauns and of the family castle in Ireland. Growing up we would always have fun on St. Patrick's Day...   we would wake up with leprechaun's gold dust in our room and end the day with a corn beef meal. 

My Aunt and Uncle have showered us with some special goodies for today!  Fun hats, cute hair bows and warm socks have been loved today. (Thanks guys, We love you!)  We were suppose to enjoy the traditional St. Patrick's Day meal tonight but we're still trying to decide if our little man's tummy is up for it.   Oh how my boys love corn beef!
