Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The day of green is here! If you forgot today is that day you better make sure your wearing some green and if you have green eyes that doesn't count :P

A family tradition growing up, my parents would make delicious green oatmeal. I know it sounds gross, but it actually looks quite appealing! Then for dinner we would have corned beef, potatoes and cabbage and watch The Quiet Man. If you haven't seen it you should! It is on my top favorite list :) Does anyone have some fun family traditions to share? I would love to hear about it!
God bless you all this day!

Your right Rachel, it is kinda long! But delightfully so :)

Mamajil, green pancakes sound so good! I hope you check the movie out. It is a true treasure :) I hope you guys are doing well. I have been thinking about you, especially since we are so close now! Let me know if you are ever in my area! I would love to meet you and your family :)
