Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

If you want your kids to get up at 6:30 in the morning, do this...

Read this story to them the night before St. Patrick's Day.

Have them paint their own treasure boxes for FHE.
Lead a trail of green foliage all over the house that they have to follow to find their treasure.
Make them drink a "green cow" for breakfast.
And green pancakes with green syrup for dinner.
(Terek gets green peas)
Have them make a giant St. Patrick's Day cookie!!!  

And here it is almost 9:00 and I'm blogging instead of making them go to bed!!!  I guess I had better get on that!

Sounds like they have a good Momma to make Saint Pattys day fun.

We used to always have green milk and green pancakes on St. Patrick's Day. Good times. That cookie is awesome!

You're a fun mom. Back in the day my mom would do that for us. I even remember her making a giant cookie. Is a "green cow" just milk with green food coloring?

Love the cookie! You are a way cooler mom than me. We did nothing special.

What's with all this fun posting while I'm gone?!
I love the fruit roll-up photos and the cute exitement over St. Paddy's Day.
My husband won't touch messy kids either.

How fun, I am so excited to see what Legz cookie will look like.
