For as long as I can remember, St. Patrick's Day has received the same 'gotta get ready for it' commotion that any other holiday has.
Growing up it was always a must to have your St. Patrick's Day outfit picked out. I am certain we ate corned beef and cabbage and all that goes with it.
In fact as I got older and started having my own children I felt like I would be letting my own family down if I didn't teach my children to honor the holiday with great excitement.
So, today Cali and I got things started. She wanted to 'do' something. I dug out an old hotplate I found at a garage sale a few years ago. (We only use this for crafts) I warmed it up and gave her a box of crayons. We made stained glass shamrocks. I know I've done this with her before but I guess it's been a while.
She really had fun although she wanted to make pictures rather than filling up space. Either way, they're cute enough. It's a good start.
Is St. Patrick's Day a big deal at your house?
