All day Saturday, Bekah said, "I can't wait for tomorrow." We would be back to our usual type of Sunday and her nieces/nephews/friends would be spending the afternoon with us after several atypical weekends. Actually, we were all looking forward to Sunday afternoon!
Yesterday, the theme was green! We are neither Catholic nor superstitious, but we had a little fun with the Irish part of our ancestry.
Everyone wore green. There were green shirts, green dresses, green sweaters, green necklaces. (Okay, I was the one whose only green was a necklace. But then I am the only one who has no Irish heritage...)
We labeled our cups with leprechaun names Kati had assigned us for the day. There were cute names like "Clover McDoodles" and "Greenie O'Rainbow." And there were some not-as-cute names like "Bunyon O'Tavern" and "Tater O'Bourbon."
Of course, we had our annual corned beef and cabbage meal.
The wee folk were treated to leprechaun pickles! (We have some die hard pickle lovers in our family, so when I saw these little individual cups of mini pickles, I knew that they'd be a hit. We named them "leprechaun pickles" for the day.)
The finishing touch was grasshopper pie! Owen declared it "the best pie EVER" which means, of course, that this Gran will be making it again.
