Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I have to admit when it comes to my family, I am very lucky! My daughter-in-law showed us how to really celebrate St. Patrick's Day to the fullest this year. Now most of you know that I celebrate and decorate for almost every season but, I never really have done much for St. Patrick's Day. Maybe a green pancake or too, some green confetti on the table.  For weeks Krystal has been making and collecting things to transform our home to a place where surely a leprechaun would want to be. We even had a pot of gold and a couple of red headed (Iris looking) little girls, a pot of gold ( yellow jello blocks in a pot ), corn beef and cabbage soup, Irish Folk Songs playing in the background and a whole lot of beautiful decorations. So now we are sold on St. Patrick's Day. I am going to start right away getting my own decorations made for next year, just in case they aren't around here to help us. 

It is late and I am beyond tired, this is probably the most I have been up in weeks and so I will close now and just leave with you a few Iris thoughts. Good night dear friends and remember how lucky we are, to have each other!

Irish Saying
Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter.
Lullabies, dreams and love ever after.
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes...
That's the Irish for You

"May you live all the days of your life"~ Jonathan Swift

Irish Blessing
May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.
