Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!
It's the Peanut's first St. Paddy's and I'll be honest here... we have nothing planned.
This is odd considering our obvious roots in Ireland.
I'm pretty sure Peanut won't know the difference.
Next year will be different. I was reading Sasha's posts regarding St. Patricks Day (it's one of her favorite holidays) and all of their traditions and I thought back to my holidays growing up.
My mom celebrated every single holiday. I was always excited when I woke up on a holiday because I knew that something special would be waiting. It meant special treats or special eats, a card or little gift. It meant celebrating and it definitely wasn't going to be like any other day.
I want to give that to Peanut as he grows up.
This picture is bad but it makes me laugh. He is sooo tired here- look at the bags under his eyes.
Anyway, it makes me laugh because there will be so many people who will look like this come tomorrow night. It's the tired eyes at half-mast, the little delirious smile, the wobbly head and quiet possibly the drool.
That look means too much green beer. Ha!
Will there be any green beer on your horizon today?
So, do you have any St. Patrick's Day traditions?
