St. Patrick's Day!

St. Patrick's Day in our house is very much like Christmas. I started prep on food stuff on Monday which continued on until Tuesday.

It was quite warm on St. Pat's day so it was a good thing that our shirts for the special day were short sleeved! Kian even went to school without a jacket!

Our house was filled with the smell of corned beef cooking in the crock pot and the sounds of Irish music was heard throughout the day. We also had a cabbage salad, potatoes, Irish Soda Bread, and I made some special cupcakes. They were chocolate with green icing. I also put a little bit of mint extract in the frosting so it had a hint of mint to them...they were VERY good :)

The day was fairly low-key, but it was very good :) It did feel special but then again it almost always feels like St. Patrick's Day in my house ;)
