I've mentioned before that I love celebrating holidays,
but admittedly, sometimes I look at the schedule and think, "Another holiday? How can I squeeze in the time to make memories this time?" But then I never regret it when we do.
And we usually keep things pretty simple.
On St. Patrick's Day, we dressed in green
and that evening we had a green dinner in the backyard.
I blended spinach into the bread dough
and blended spinach into the smoothies
and the kids were none the wiser.
They gobbled it up (rare to have a meal that all three like!).
Funny how they gobbled up their green eggs (once again blended with spinach) and ham on Dr. Seuss' birthday, too. I love sneaking spinach into things.
As a side note, what's your favorite Dr. Seuss book?
One of our favorites is a lesser-known one called "Have I Ever Told You How Lucky You Are?"
(Although, in the spirit of full disclosure I should tell you that our version is missing a page due to a bare bottom picture...)
We also love "The Bippolo Seed" and "The Sneetches."
But our favorite is "Horton Hatches the Egg." That faithful elephant is so fabulous!
