The Saint Patrick's Day 2012 Instagram Breakdown

This year, Saint Patrick's Day fell on a rainy Saturday, so we spent the day indoors "celebrating." This was also the first year Wendy had any clue what St. Patrick's Day was (thanks to her preschool teachers at tiny tots who went all out and had a leprechaun reap havoc on their classroom). So because of that (and some mom guilt from ideas seen on pinterest) I decided I was going to make it fun.

Photo breakdown:

1. Separated fruit loops by color for some St. Patty's Day art (tried to slow my daughter down from eating the whole box in one day... it took her two.)
2. The proud artist with her pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. She really did most of the work, it turned out super cute but baby brother tried to eat it.
3. Woke up St. Patrick's Day morning to some leprechaun mischief... he ate the rest of our fruit loops & left tiny footprints
4. Wendy helped me make green (scrambled) eggs and ham (bacon) with shamrock cinnamon toast for breakfast. She had a lot of fun making it but wasn't so sure about eating it.
5.We looked around the house and followed some more footprints to leprechaun mischief... he left us a message on the chalkboard door AND (not pictured) played around Wendy's dollhouse, it's just his size.
6. ...apparently he had to go to the bathroom as well.
7. During baby brother's nap we painted our nails with "Pot of Gold" glitter polish.
8. Even though we saw no one all day, we all wore lots of green - didn't want any pinching going on in our house.
9. The "Harvey's 1st Saint Patrick's Day" shot.

Oh my gosh! So many fun things. I should have done more for St. Patty's Day. I love all the green and the fun things leprechauns can do. I used to do fun things like this but I just kind of forgot this year. :) Great job and way cute things!
