Challenge #4 St Patrick's Day Part 1

We always have a St Patrick’s Day meal with my parents, but we don’t always get together on St Patrick’s Day. So Mom made this amazing meal earlier this week and I had to capture it on film.

We’re having a St Patrick’s Day meal at my house tonight, so I’ll let you know about that tomorrow!

Challenge #4 Pi Day!

March 14 (3-14) is Pi Day! We celebrated Jude’s Pi day when he was 3.14 years old. It was a great day – pie for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Colin taught Jude what Pi means & they had a great time. I’m glad that Pi Day comes around every year.

For Pi Day this year, I made red velvet whoopie pies from a mix I got on clearance after Valentine’s Day. So yummy!

We had dinner at my Mom & Dad’s house that evening so she & Jude made us a chocolate banana cream pie. Probably my favourite pie ever, and that’s saying a lot because I love pie!

Since I wasn’t cooking dinner, I didn’t do any kind of meat pies which I love. There’s always next year! (Or next week).

Challenge #4 Celebrate Interesting Holidays

I love finding weird & wacky or significant holidays to celebrate with my family. I usually use this site to find them. I certainly don’t pick them all, I select the ones that I think would be most interesting & fun for me & my boys.

I’ve already picked the holidays for the rest of 2011 & will report on our activities related to those holidays throughout the year.
