How we spent our St. Patrick's Day

I am a bit tardy on this post, but St. Patrick's Day is one of those holidays that comes almost without warning anyway, so forgive me on the delay.  

We have never been ones to have a party on this day, but we have gotten more and more into the holiday over the years.  We cook St. Patrick's Day themed foods throughout the day, and even indulge in some of the traditions toward the evening.  And the crafting part of the holiday is always my favorite.  Here is a glimpse into what we did for St. Patrick's Day this year.

Of course you have to have a "Kiss me I'm Irish" sign some where in your home on St. Patrick's Day!

We let Skylar cover the front living room window with colored cellophane squares for the entire day.  If you haven't done this craft with your kids, you should really try it.  All it entails is dish soap, water, and cut cellophane.  That's it!  Afterward your window is super shiny and clean too!  You can find the detailed project instructions HERE!

After one side was covered we decided to keep going and cover the entire window.

It was so fun and colorful.

We still have it up and will leave it up for the whole week of spring break.  

I cooked Corn-Beef Hash, Sauerkraut and Sausage, and Irish Potato Soup, as well as green Lemonade (lemonade with green food coloring in it; FYI:  I use India Tree Natural Colors), that we munched on and drank throughout the day.

Eco-Tip:  When it comes to drinking milk, the human race is the only animal on the planet that still drinks milk after being weaned from the mother.   But if you are among the many that still drink milk on a regular basis make sure you choose milk that is hormone and steroid-free.  Look for milk brands that are organic and have backing when it comes to all natural and free of unnecessary additives in it.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
