It was a school day and Laura performed that night, so we kept this year's St. Patrick's day celebrations a bit more mellow. But, with a last name like my maiden name, there has to be some celebrating. We had a "Top O' the Mornin'" breakfast for dinner the night before with the Irish grandparents. My parents brought the breakfast meats to go along with rainbow fruit, pints, and french toast casserole.
I painted the girls' nails green, except Laura who had to perform and got only a shamrock. Uniform shirts were waived for the day and they all wore shamrock shirts that I got online for $2 each.
