St. Patricks Day!

"Those silly Leprechauns".  This is what I heard Keagan say quite a few times yesterday and even a few times today when remembering what they did yesterday. 

This is the first year that we have done anything for St. Patricks Day.  First of all, sometime in the night, some Leprechauns visiting our house.  They wrote on the mirror in the kids bathroom, turned the toilet water green, turned over some furniture and dyed the milk green.  When Keagan and Deker got up they kept saying "Whaaat? Those silly Leprechauns".  It was pretty funny. 

We started off the day by having Rainbow waffles.  We got the idea for them here on Random Thoughts of a Supermom.  Andrew had the idea to add a piece of fried ham with scrambled eggs for the pot of gold. 
 Keagan and Deker excited about eating their rainbow waffles and their pot of gold. 
Bauer excited to eat anything.
For dinner that night, we had the very delicious Chicken Ranch Wraps (recipe found on Smithalicious).  To make it more green, I dyed the chicken, ranch, rice mixture green and we had green tortillas.  Drank green milk and had green jello (we used lime jello and instead of mixing in the cold water, we mixed in cool whip). 
It was a lot of fun to see how excited Keagan was about it all and in turn see Deker excited because he likes to be like his older brother.  It sure does make it a lot more fun to celebrate these fun little holidays.

Dan, my mom, and I love it!!! My mom wants to know how you made the waffles--that was such a cute idea. And Dan & I laughed and laughed about the boys and the "silly leprechauns"--we could totally pictures Keagan and Deker saying that. What fun--you always make the holidays special. Your boys will have many, many great memories of their childhood.
