A Week of Being Irish

St. Patrick’s Day is a bit of a big deal around here.  Paul and I were married on March 17 waaaaay back in 1996.

I got a bunch of books from the library for the girls to learn about Ireland and about the holiday itself.   They’ve been telling lame leprechaun – related jokes  (What kind of music do leprechauns like??  Sham-Rock!) and listening to Irish bands (Enya, U2, Black 47).

Last night we made Shamrock cookies.

Afterwards we stuffed our faces and watched Darby O’Gill and the Little People.

Tomorrow we’re going to make some Irish Soda Bread and Beef & Guinness stew.  Then we’ll settle in for a 4 hour Destination Truth live from Ireland, where they’re going to investigate the legend of the Banshee.  Should be fun (especially with that bottle of Bailey’s I bought)!

Slainte!
