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.
We did that same craft at story time! It was kind of hard for me to put food and glue together, but one of the moms had organized it.
Cookies look yummy!
I love the Davey picture. I think he looks like you in this one.
