Happy St. Patrick's Day...

All week Rainee's been getting ready for her St. Patrick's Party... and every day she's been wearing a shamrock on her cheek. I love the excitement in the air around our house... it's been such a delight!!!

Besides wearing a shamrock... she's been working on her leprechaun trap... but every one has fallen apart... leaving her disappointed... so decided to help her and found a really cute one on It's been fun watching her excitement grow as she saw it wasn't falling apart... now... she's very hopeful to catch one.... guess we'll see!!!

As for Rainee's St. Patrick's Day Party!!!!!.... We've had an awesome day!!! From moment she woke up the little leprechaun hanging around our house has been doing pranks.... silly leprechaun! At the party we ate... Leprechaun's End of the Rainbow Cupcakes... yup they really are layered with the colors of the rainbow... Rainee and I  had such fun making these... I was going to be bummed if they didn't turn out... but they were the hit of the party!!! We also ate Pot of Gold Cheese Dip with chips... Luck of the Irish Veggie Platter... and Leprechaun's Irish Jig Punch... then with the Lucky Leprechaun's Shamrock Cookies... the kids were able to decorate them any way they wanted... it was a blast!!! I kind went all out on the sign-making for all delicious dishes... which all the mom's got a kick out of. The kids played a few Leprechaun games... ate, drank and played their little hearts out inside and outside. Right now... Rainee's trying to relax after such a fun crazy-busy day... but the leprechaun keeps pulling pranks on her... crazy-funny!!! So, all in all our it was a delightful day!!!

Before go I thought I'd share one more thing... This morning while cleaning up my desk,  I found a silhouette of the shamrock used for Rainee's party invitations... and thought I'd make a St. Patrick's Day card with it... well, as it turns out when I was finished with it I found a little surprise inside the vintage book type I'd used... the surprise was the... "Good Luck" in amongst the type... I thought it rather fun... I love little happenstance like that... very fun!!!

Well our day is nearly done... but before I say good night... I  thought I'd leave you with an Irish Blessing...

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way-
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Irish Blessing
