An Irish Celebration

Mattey had her St. Patrick's Day party today since she doesn't have school on Friday.  She was dressed in green from neck to toe.  She was really cute, green is a great color for her.  Kade and I got done really quickly at the doctor's office this morning (His ears are finally good.) and had visited Mickey at work but still had some time left before Mattey would get out of school.  So we went in to peek at the party.  I was just in time to take some pictures of her eating her snack.  They had fruit on a stick with green dip.  There were green and gold jello jigglers.  And magic milk.  It started out white but when it was poured into the cup it turned green!  The kids got a kick out of that.  Mattey was surprised to see us.  When we got home she told me all about her day.  The Leprechaun came and made a mess of the room but left gold coins for everyone.  "It was a disaster!  The chairs were on the table, the numbers were up-side down, the room was a mess."  Mat couldn't wait to dig in her goodie bag.  She did have some lunch before eating most of the candy.  She is so sweet, she even shared two chocolate coins with her sister.  I think she had a good time.  Thanks to the moms and teachers that put on the party.
