We celebrated St. Patrick's Day with about seven inches of snow (yuck!). That of course was unusual. Otherwise, we were fairly traditional on St. Patrick's Day.
We started the morning with Irish soda bread. I wish I could say it was homemade or at least came from one of our fabulous local bakeries, but I picked it up at the grocery store before the snow came.
After breakfast the girls made the leprechaun craft pictured above. They were quite creative with the project and we now have them proudly displayed on their bedroom door. After the organized St. Patrick's Day project, the girls delved into more independent projects and attempted to make leprechaun and fairy outfits from construction paper and paper towels.
Like many families, we ended our day with corned beef and cabbage. The girls refused to eat it and opted for beans on toast (which I am realizing as I write was quite British of them and could be taken as an insult to the Irish). My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the corned beef, so we will still call the dinner a success.
Now we will prepare for St. Joseph's Day tomorrow. This is always such a busy week, but fun with so many food traditions and craft possibilities.
