We had a great St. Patrick’s Day this past weekend– Now that I have kids, celebrating these smaller holidays are so much more fun! I have started a tradition to always give them something small for each holiday (obviously more for bigger holidays) – I think this just makes them feel extra special and I love doing it.
This St. Patty’s Day I gave Brayden a small treat, I found the idea from a blog I love, Repeat Crafter Me – let’s just say he was very excited when he received this! Ella, well, she didn’t get anything because my rule is you have to be over 1 J Thankfully she won’t remember she didn’t get anything.
The kids had St. Patty’s Day outfits (of course!!) so pictures were a must! Brayden will only give me 5 seconds now a days to take his picture (I really hope this is only a short short phase for this picture taking obsessed Mama!) so I was lucky to even get these!
I would have to say the best part of the day was when we were eating our corned beef Brayden took my face into his hands and got really close and said “You’re beautiful Mommy” – melt my heart!! I don’t know if it was sincere or if he was manipulating the situation because he didn’t want to eat, but either way, I ate it up. That is until a minute later he said “Daddy, you’re beautiful too!” LOL This boy is just too darn cute, I love how sweet he is.
