This year I wanted to do something fun for Kaylee and go all out for St. Patrick's Day. I had planned on making a leprechaun trap and having her go on a little treasure hunt but things didn't really work out the way I had planned. I started making the trap but ran out of time and patience so I wasn't able to finish it. Maybe I will try again next year. Maybe. :) I ended up decorating a little treasure chest and filling it with some candy. I gave it to her the morning of St. Patrick's day and told her the leprechaun left it for her. She loved it!!! I think mostly because she LOVES chocolate!!
We had our good friends Ethan and Ellen over the day before St. Patrick's day and made cute leprechaun pictures. So much fun!!!
I tried out a new sugar cookie recipe and made shamrock shaped sugar cookies with green frosting. They were very yummy and I am so glad that I found a good sugar cookie recipe. You can find the recipe here. My parent's had us over for a yummy corned beef and cabbage dinner and I brought some of the cookies along for dessert. Dinner was so DELICIOUS!!! I think I could have eaten all of the corned beef myself! So good!!!
I am trying harder to make holidays more fun for Kaylee and help create some great memories for her. I guess this is a start...baby steps right?! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :)
