st. patrick's day

I had high hopes for St. Patrick's Day. On Friday, I used a die cut to make tons of rainbow shamrocks and strung them together with thread and needle. I wanted so badly for my son to wake up and see the pretty shamrocks hanging by the door.

But, like they say, sometimes the best laid plans of mice and men go astray. My son woke up at 2am to use the potty, and then had a difficult time going back to sleep. He was coughing a lot, and after awhile, came crawling into our bed (and all this time, he didn't notice the shamrocks).

He finally woke up around 7am, and the first thing he asked was, how is it staying up there? He then noticed the blue tape, and was completely uninterested after that. Urg.

After I got over my initial why am I even doing this mood, I showed him a shamrock with clues for a scavenger hunt.

His first clue was to look inside his pillowcase.

Daddy, what does it say?

I found another one by the kitchen towels!

The last shamrock lead him to his Thomas trains, where he found a bag of goodies.


This is what he found...bathtub crayons and gold "Dos Peso" coins. Lol.

I got the adorable printables here.

After the scavenger hunt, Jimmy and Blee made rainbow pancakes together.

Happy St. Patty's Day!


  1. Amazing pics! What a fun day, awesome mommy:)


  2. We recently made colored pancakes too though not for St. Patrick's day. My youngest daughter was helping me make them and asked if we could make them blue. All the kids thought it was just the greatest. It looks like your son was really enjoying his rainbow pancakes too.
    Thanks for stopping by our blog.
