Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In fine Chaos Family tradition, we just have to celebrate the heck out of every holiday and this one is no different. Plus, I figure I've given birth to two leprechauns and this should be celebrated! And now I will share all the details with you. And pictures!

We started our day with green milk in the cereal, compliments of CG. I was so proud!
After a fun trip to the library with friends, we headed up to CG's work to go to lunch with him. The girls love going to Daddy's work and we don't make it often so it was extra special.

And, no over done holiday is complete without the holiday dinner. I present you with Corned Beef, potatoes and cabbage! And it was actually good! I also made the same Irish scones I made last year, but dyed them green this time around. And some flavored drink I found in the cabinet and added green food coloring to.
And the best dessert EVER! Mint chocolate chip ice cream. No food coloring necessary.

Happy Little Leprechauns
Don't you just love how clean the kitchen in the background is?! Yeah, we won't talk about how a neighbor stopped by to drop off some cupcake tins they had borrowed and had to witness the horror that was my kitchen. Or the ensuing embarrassment.....ahem

On a completely unrelated note, as we were driving home from lunch with CG it was sunny. Really sunny. Which is a good thing. I am SO not complaining. But, well, ya'll know what happened to my sunglasses and I haven't found a replacement pair yet and it was really sunny to the point that it was affecting my fabulous driving skills. So I grabbed the only thing that I could.
If you saw a crazy lady driving around town wearing shamrock sunglasses, that was me. Go ahead and be jealous. I can't blame you.

Love the sunglasses, but you are the eternal leprechaun so no surprise there. Dinner looked fantastic and your fellow leprechauns are adorable, including CG. I like the mint chocolate ice cream much better compared to the banana pudding we used and added green to which ended up with a bit of a blue hue:)

You look great!

And my mom used to make corned beef and cabbage, and all I would eat was the potatoes. I really hate corned beef.

What a fun St. Patty's day! I've never had corned beef and cabbage. I don't know that I want to either. And you have a couple of darn cute leprechauns!

You are a hoot! I love the glasses and food ideas! If you want some more holidays to celebrate I found this great site www.brownielocks.com they even have a holiday for chocolate covered caramel which happens to be this week, I know we don't need a holiday to celebrate chocolate but I don't mind one! Your great! I love your blog!

I'm so not worthy. It's really to bad you live in happy valley cause as much alcohol as there is consumed around here, those glasses would so have been appreciated!!

I think you should wear your fabulous sharmrock glasses everyday. They are very becoming.

And what is wrong with Kristina P? She doesn't like corned beef? That is practically un-American! :)
