This is a picture of Gabby when she was nearly 17 months old. I was not very good at photo manipulation back then (and I'm still not), but this was a picture I created for Saint Patrick's Day 2004.
I forgot to do anything for my kids for St. Patrick's Day today and I always do something to celebrate, so I had to come up with some quick ideas.
My one and only idea was to throw some ingredients together and make the kids some green cookies for St. Paddy's Day. You can find the recipe for my Quick Saint Patrick's Day Cookies on my Kids Creating Cakes blog.
While browsing my friends' posts on Facebook, I found a St. Patrick's Day coloring page from my friend Jen Goode on Projects For Preschoolers. So I quickly printed them up for the kids to color.
I didn't have time to go to the bookstore or the library, but if I had, I would have tried to buy something like this book to read to the children.
It can be bought in the US here:
And it can be bought in the UK here:
Fortunately, the kids were so thrilled with the fact that the cookies were green that they didn't even notice that I was unable to find their St. Patrick's Day buttons, and I couldn't find the St. Patrick's Day ribbon that we usually hang on our front door for the day.
