Our St. Patrick's Day festivities have evolved through the years as my children have grown. Gone are the days of Leprechaun surprises, chocolate gold coins, and rainbows made of fruit. You know what? I do miss those days, but I am enjoying how we celebrate now just as much. This year, Madison and I planned and hosted a special tea the day before St. Patrick's Day. She and I made some delicious tea party sandwiches and a brand new punch recipe, purchased some cute sugar cookies and excellent locally made scones, and brewed some Irish tea. We added some green grapes, and Peyton made a delicious Irish Apple Cake.
Madison, my sister Margie, me, Kyrstin, Flynn, and Peyton are all ready to enjoy our afternoon tea.
St. Patrick's Day itself was quiet. In the morning, I prepared a delicious Irish Stew that cooked all day in the crockpot and added a locally made Irish Soda Bread for dinner. Peyton brought a homemade Boston Cream Pie for dessert.
Holidays are special to our family. But then every day is, right?
Have a cozy weekend, my friends!
I will be around to visit!
