Going Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! As a former teacher, this is one of my favorite days. Now I didn't bother trying to explain to my twins the meaning of St. Patrick's Day, but I did give my 3 year old some of the details. She really likes the fact that she gets to pinch anyone not wearing green. Of all the things I told her, that's what she remembers. Kids!

For breakfast this morning, Isabella and I made green french toast and green milk. I was happy that the babies ate the french toast even though it was green. Isabella thought it was the funniest thing in the world to drink green milk. I haven't heard that many giggles at the breakfast table in a long time.

I couldn't think of an easy lunch to make green last night when I was planning all this out. But while reading Green Eggs and Ham, I decided to make breakfast for lunch. We ate green ham and cheese omelets with green grapes and green apples and peas. Again the kiddos had no problem eating the green food. And Isabella thought it was funny to only eat green food. (I hope I haven't started something here though.)

I've really enjoyed eating the green food with my kiddos today. Even though it tastes the same, it's fun! I love celebrating holidays with my kids and being goofy with them. Brett refused to eat my green food the first year we celebrated St. Patrick's Day together. (Party Pooper!)

So are you eating any green food today? Or are you just sticking to green beer?
