We celebrated early due to the fact we had our Autumn home for the weekend and so wanted her to be a part of our family celebrations.
I tried to find green colour clothes for everyone , but it seemed we were a little lacking this year. However I love the little Irish girl above, truly she is so adorable in temperament and so sweet too.
She has missed having her big sister home and so spent a lot of time with her 'buddy'
I was a little disappointed when I went to Spotlight and discovered that the only choices for decorating involved green beer images. So we just used the paper chains and set up things a little differently.
As we were having a simple lunch of shamrock leaves on sourdough bread and an Irish Flag consisting of celery, cheese and carrot sticks, this was quickly done.
Arwen insisted on using the Irish Flag as a place mat!
Irish Girls I made last year along with the Leprechauns from the year before with the rainbow and
make my version of Bailey's Irish Cream.. I tried to buy the chocolates for the children but couldn't find any in the shops.
Still it was very very good and none was left on the plate.
Well after this our Autumn went back to Uni where she is really settling in and enjoying all that is on offer there. We miss her still but were so glad she was here for this special feast day.
Praying you all enjoyed your own celebrations of this most special saint, well in our opinion at least.
ST PATRICK PRAY FOR US!!
By the way we did do some formal lesson work with the word searches, crossword puzzles and colouring pages, but we put them in their note books before I took photos this year.
Blessings to you and your homes,
