we don’t get too crazy over here for st, patty’s day.

yes, there were some green cookies

but it’s been a few years since we had littles in the house, and teens don’t get that exited about leprechaun traps and green hair dye

for us st. patrick’s day means we eat all the corned beef and cabbage we can handle, have a Guinness or two (NOT the teens)
