Do you do anything fun to celebrate?  Dress green? Eat specific foods?  What does your family do?

I did the green frosted cinnamon rolls for breakfast and then the kids and I made the mint chocolate cupcakes for dessert, that was about it. DH went and bought Emma a new bike for her birthday next month and that sort of threw my whole day off, not in a bad way or anything though. But, at least i've got the ideas for next year...

Cute ideas, Tracy!  What did you end up doing?  I was a total bum and ended up not doing a darn thing.  I kind of feel bad about that too! Time just really got away from me this year...  Oh well, I guess I'll have to break out some crafts and other goodies for Easter.

So since I was thinking about it I went out and got some green construction paper while at lunch, alone wtih some cleareanced St. Patrick's day plates and marshmallows.  I think I'll add green food coloring to the icing of the cinnamon rolls DH bought the other night and we can have those for breakfast, maybe I'll make a play on green eggs and ham for lunch, and then the girls and I can make green rice krispie treats for an afternoon snack after nap time.  Still thinking about a craft and I wonder if I can come up with some sort of four leaf clover hunt they can do outside to run off some steam while I am in cleaning.  I'm going to have to research a bit more on that one.

we don't really at all.  I was thinking about doing a corned beef in the crock pot though, and maybe I can look up a craft project to keep the girls occupied for a bit on Sunday.  Its supposed to be a beautiful 84 degrees on Sunday, so anything I can do to keep them outside as much as possible (so maybe I can clean the house...) would be great!
