the green team

Today was St. Patrick's Day and boy did we celebrate! We waited to do most of our activities until Shawn got home and turned it into a fun family night.

Lauren helped me cook our dinner. How sweet is that smile?

I know this looks gross. But, it was so much fun! We had spinach chicken, garlic & butter noodles (dyed green) and peas. I'm not sure that we will ever make the spinach chicken again, but it made for a fun dinner!!!

Lauren liked the noodles! She also like the peas! That girl has never liked peas, but for some reason tonight she ate them and I was so excited!!!

We put together this shamrock trinity craft I saw here. It was neat for Shawn to see how much Lauren loves to glue things!!!

Next, we colored our leprechaun coloring sheets as a family. This was such a great time and gave us a chance to relax and enjoy each other!!

Can you guess whose is whose?

We also introduced our family Bible verse for this week:
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21

We listed to our Seeds Family Worship song that goes with this verse and Lauren rocked it out!

I introduced Lauren to a really fun website called Starfall. She really enjoyed the clover game and wanted to play it over and over. I loved how she pointed out the snake, duck, and pig by calling their sounds!!!

Before Lauren went to bed we created a rainbow using colored Twizzlers. I actually thought this would be more of a hit, but she really didn't like them. It still looked cute!

Finally, after Lauren went to bed, Shawn and I enjoyed this yummy green cake. We have Biggest Loser and American Idol to watch!!!

Hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day!!!


  1. How fun! I'm glad you guys had a great family night. Tanner and I dyed our hair green for church tonight. I'm ready to go wash it out now!

  2. Seriously - you're killing me with your creative juices this month. You know what I did for St. Patrick's Day? At about 5:00pm, I said aloud "Oh, I think today is St. Patrick's Day. Hmmmm...". The end.

  3. Oh how fun! All I did with Noah was make a handprint 4-leaf clover...I am quite impressed with everything! Thanks for visiting & commenting...this was my first visit to your blog, but I'll be back! You can't miss another John Mayer fan with their own *adorable* Lauren to boot:)

  4. I LOVE the twizzler rainbow! Such great ideas! Kyler couldn't handle the green eggs I made yesterday, but Dylan loved them. Cute pics!! Your such a good mommy!

  5. Adorable pics! You have such a precious family and you can tell that you are awesome parents to Lauren!

    Riley LOVES Starfall. It taught him his abc's and some sight words.
