Happy Saint Patricks Day!!!!

Today is the feast of Saint Patrick, the corned beef is in the crockpot, ah the Irish cream is in the freezer, and the day is full of green ;o)~ I love this holiday, from the time I was a little girl embracing my Irish side was perfectly fine. And today, I am embracing it as always. (Chuck never complains.. he loves the corned beef). The only thing I do not partake in is the green beer.. Even though I have found a beer I like there is no way I am turning it green. lol Not since when I was 19 and my brother came out of the bathroom after lunch at Bennigans (*sigh* I miss them . I loved their broc bites), and informed us "I just peed green" um no thanks lol

So today, this blog is going to well pass along a few Irish smiles for you, first of all an Irish Blessing:

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I love this holiday, I love everything about it.. the good food, the good times, the celebrating that today it is ok for everyone to be a little bit irish. :o)~ We put Emily in the same shirt she wore last year.. I knew it would probably fit because the smallest I could find last year was a 12 months size. So I figured oh what the heck.. below are pictures of last year and today lol

St Patricks Day.. 2008. she was 2.5 months old. lol.

St Patricks Day 2009, 14 months old... so cute. and LOOK at that red hair?? no denying she's got a tid bit of the Irish Lass in her eh?
