Happy St. Patrick's Day

I love St. Paddy's Day!!! The rivers getting dyed green in some places,the FUNtivities happening all over.  Especially witnessing the amazing sea of green from everyone's clothing everywhere you go.  It's a well known thing, if you don't wear green you will surely get pinched.  It's so fun coordinating clothing for a family of five for holidays to have fun celebrating.  

Last year we went to an outdoor mall and they had dyed their lake green.  We wore our coordinating shirts...Me and Hubby wore matching shirts that said "Hooligans" written on them with a four leaf clover and our three girls wore matching shirts that said "Little Hooligans up to Shenanigans Again."  I made matching hairbows with shamrocks on them for Lulee then 4 and Brynlea then 1, Sadie then 15, wore a shamrock ribbon headband....sooo cute. We walked through there and took a lot of pics, participated in activities...hula hoops, got animal shaped balloons made and all sorts of things.  So fun!!!

This year we invited my side of the family over to our house for some FUNtivities. We started out with a cook out. We even had a special guest, Sadie Bug's friend Donny, who is also a redhead. :))) So including myself we had three redheads over today.  My Grandmother, myself and Donny.  If my sister, Lori, was able to make it, we would have had four.  :))) We had so much fun.  The house was spotless, thanks to Sadie Bug helping me. Hubby cooked the great food and my Nanny brought over her yummy red velvet cake, she makes the best.  Hubby is an awesome cook on the grill and in the kitchen too.

We had fun visiting with each other.  We got to spend some fun time with Hubby's side last weekend.  It's nice to be able to spend time with family.
