Who says St. Patrick's Day has to be a drinking holiday? I remember growing up and having my mom make us green shamrock pancakes. It was so much fun. Of course we thought they were going to be gross... they were green. But they always tasted like pancakes. The kids class pictures were this day. The picture packet said the pictures would turn out better if your child didn't wear green. HELLO!!! Who doesn't wear green on this holiday!! So, of course, I send my children in green shirts. IT'S FUN!! This year I thought I would be a cool mom and go all out. We had shamrock pancakes for breakfast and I put some cool things in their lunch boxes. They had green and white chocolate dipped pretzels and oreos, Sprite, french onion Sun chips (the package was green) and a fruit snack... it had buzz lightyear on it. They also had to have the golden part, so I put in a Twinkie and a cut up golden delicious apple. For snack time we had green rice crispy treats. The kids chowed those down. For dinner we had worm casserole (died green), green jello jigglers, green beans, lima beans, green lime kool-aid and sprite. The kids enjoyed it (and so did Chris and I).
