A Day for the Irish~

~our St. Patricks Day celebration began with a dinner
of corned beef, potatoes and carrots, a side of
oven roasted cabbage (a new recipe from Martha...soooo yummy!)
and soda bread~

~we then headed to the library for a chocolate tasting~
there were stories for the children, a shamrock hunt,
musical chairs, a wonderful sense of
community and the most amazing chocolate

~it just doesn't get any better than a entire table of homemade goodness~
~shamrocks & tophats~

~the hubs playing musical chairs~
no, he didn't win, despite the fact
he just may have pushed a small
child out of the way in a attempt
to get a seat~
* just kidding*

~all in all it was a great day of green and
I leave you with my favorite Irish prayer~

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm
of his hand~

Happy St.Patricks Day!
