Happy St. Patrick's Day

The cute, green crew! (Emmy is wearing a green skirt.)

We had a special breakfast - complete with green milk and lucky charms (of course) along with a green smoothie.

Emmy slurping up her smoothie. YUM.

Miles wanted me to take this silly picture of him - with a marshmallow stuck on his lip. Nice. I asked the kids what they thought made the smoothie green. Miles guessed from a kiwi, Jonas guessed from food coloring, and Emmy went with Miles - kiwi. I told them it was from leaves - spinach leaves, to be exact. Awesome. I used this recipe here. I did add just a little bit of sugar and some vanilla. Fun, fun.

Last but certainly not least: our green cutie, Lucy.

We've got some green pudding planned for sometime today. And dinner will be pesto pizza with a green cottage cheese salad.

Erin Go Bragh! (Which sounds sooooooooo like my sister's maiden name. Love it.)

anything to liven up the days. :)

and the pictures: i go to picnik.com and do the various "effects." i think it's fun. you'll see a huge difference in the blah-bland pictures my camera takes versus a little tweaking of the photo on their site.
