It’s been almost a week since St Patrick’s Day, but I wanted to post a few pictures about the fun things we did.
Davey was all into St Patrick’s Day this year. He wanted to have a “party” so we decided on a craft and a green treat to make together.
Pinterest came in really handy for this, and we settled on making a rainbow and pot of gold. This involved Froot Loops and goldfish. And glue.
I sorted Froot Loops. David applied glue, and Davey attached the Froot Loops (well a lot of them).
This final result was cute!
Within about 5 minutes of the completion of the pot of gold(fish), Buster jumped up and ate about 3 of the goldfish. That was his contribution.
We made green cookies too. This was a really easy recipe which involved sugar cookie mix, andes mints and chocolate chips.
Davey refused to try a cookie. I’ve realized he is somewhat of a purist (have to put a positive spin on his particular eating habits). He likes sugar cookies, Andes mints, and chocolate chips – but he does not like them all mixed together. Davey is not a fan of mixtures of any type. (and of course the cookies were green – maybe not a selling point either!) But sugar-laden cookies -not a bad idea to refuse anyway!
I like this close up of him.
And then a short Buster story. Buster is almost 6 months old and of course he likes to chew things. He is in love with this Superman (who is about 3 inches tall?).
He will dig it specifically out of a tote with about 40 of these little guys. I tested him. He got it, and I took it away and reburied it in the bottom of the tote. A minute later, he had found Superman and was carrying him across the room. It’s all about the cape I think. He was ready to annihilate the cape. Superman is safely put away though. For now.
