I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Food, folks and fun

Due to scheduling issues we had our St. Patrick Day party the day after the actual holiday. My neighbor and friend came up with some great ideas for the party. First we watched a short video about St. Patrick.

There were green refreshements of course.
Then we played a game called "Patrick, oh Patrick, where is your shamrock?"
The shamrock they passed to hide had the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit written on the three parts representing the trinity.

The kids then made shamrock hats in the same theme.

They were very diligent in getting their hats made.

After the hats were made we set out the treats while they worked on word finds.
Those cupcakes look good!
Those hats turned out pretty cute, too!

We are planning another party in about a month. We had fun learning about St. Patrick and can't wait to pick another topic. Here's to fun friends and learning!
