Sunday Snapshot

Ni Hao Yall

This past Thursday, we had a day o' celebration
here at The Gang's Headquarters,
paying homage to our Irish
(and Irish for the day) roots.
Here's how the day went down, Gang style!

Two guesses which of my "hooligans" actually forked
over his own dinero to purchase and wear this little gem!

His favorite shirt, for St. Patty's Day or not, of all time.

A little green nail polish to honor the good Saint.
And to welcome the beautiful spring day.

Yummy Irish Soda Bread was the perfect
accompaniment to our hearty lamb stew for dinner.

We wrapped up the festivities with a green cake,
frosted in green and topped with green nuts.

And in the background, my Eden's Bridge worship tunes
mixed with some old Corrs
tunes to keep the house in the spirit all day long.

Shades o' green were all over the house....
Can you guess who is who?

Looks like a very fun day! What a way to celebrate!!! We have no Irish, but we at least wore green :) You soda break looks delicious and the green toes made me smile!

That green nail polish is the bomb!

Happy St. Paddy's Day to a truly Irish family! The Tongginator stayed home sick on St. Patrick's Day (and the day before it), plus the husband was away, so we didn't do ANYTHING. I usually make soda bread, but I didn't this year. Which means I am totally coveting your two loaves. They look like they were yummy!

Can I just say...I would NEVER have thought of green nail polish!! Way cool!

Jen said...

The green nail polish is a really smart idea - I will have to remember that for next year!

Aus said...

Tell us true - does green nail polish make those little piggies less tickelish? ;)

"....and my you be in Heaven 'half an hour 'fore the devil knows yer dead!"

hugs - aus and co.
