But I didn't want to skip a St. Patrick's Day post. (If only because I saw this picture online and had to share it)
Yesterday, I managed to get some cute shots of our two youngest kids in there "I Can't Hold My Licker" shirts from Dirt Road Dog on etsy.
I also made my favorite St. Pat's Day treat, Guiness cake (though this year I used oatmeal stout and not Guiness)

It reminds me of this knit turban worn by a young Lucille Ball:
