Tonight we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with Dave's family. I know I have shared on the blog before about Dave's family celebrating St. Patrick's Day. I honestly don't know any other families that celebrate this holiday but I am glad we do. Dave's Mom celebrated many holidays and this was one of them so I am glad we can honor her in that way.
Becky painted the dogs using a marker. It's always fun to bring your pets into the festivities.
Everyone was asked to bring green food.
Dave and I made green alfredo pasta.
Becky made salad and guacamole. A double portion of guacamole apparently because Caleb really likes it. ;)
JB & Gloria brought drinks which consisted of ginger ale poured over lime sherbert.
Caleb, Andrea and Aidan brought green dinosaur cookies.
Dave loves it when I put fun decor on his face.
We then all drew a picture of a lepricon. Caleb and Andrea arrived later in the party so they were the judges. We had five drawings and five categories so everyone could be a winner.
Left picture is JB's and the right picture's is Becky's.
Left picture: Dave, Center picture mine, right picture is Gloria's. Don't be jealous of our awesome artistic abilities.
Cheese got a good rest in.
And so did Aidan.
Static got a good begging session in. She could be hired as a professional beggar.
And here is a group photo of all of us, minus Byron because he was working.
If you celebrate St. Patrick's Day I hope it's fun for you. We celebrated early this year because Dave and I are headed out of town and won't be here to celebrate on the day of.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
