Truly Miss Elaine-ous Monday

The entire family dressed in green on Saturday to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in our own little way.

Tim also made green pancakes.

On Friday afternoon The B man went on about the “leprechaun” that wreaked havoc in their classroom at school. They came back to find all kinds of silly things done to the room after their 2nd recess and he was so excited to tell me all about it.  “He” even left all the students their own four-leaf clover coins.  (see photo below, can you spy them?)

I laughed to myself while standing at the kitchen sink, putting dishes in the dishwasher.  What a cute thing for his teacher to do.

You know, invite a leprechaun in… 😉

There is no Irish in my blood but my kids are part Irish on Tim’s side.

And I don’t mind wearing green myself…

It was a good but busy weekend with two soccer games, one birthday party and a Saturday trip to Sam’s (good golly I still miss Costco) in the middle of it all.

Plus we got our new bedroom furniture delivered and I feel like a grown up now.  Or at least a little more like one anyway…

On Sunday evening the children gathered around my laptop to look at Lego games and play sets on the internet.  When B spied the Harry Potter game he started to hum the music from the movies and K tried to follow his lead and started humming random notes and then G joined in too.  I wish I would have taken a video but I was too late, of course.

I just love it when the three of them do something nicely along side each other.

It just warms my green-pancake eating heart.
