Happy Monday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Ready for a new week?  The kids and I are spending a fun-filled, week-long adventure in CNY, visiting my family.  There are all sorts of wonderful things to do…to eat…while we are here that the kids and I both look forward to.  I can’t wait to share some of the excitement we get into!  In the meantime, here are some of the highlights and milestones of our past week, via iPhone:

Keeping busy while Little Miss is in dance class, with one of our favorites…the Mickey Mouse tracing activities from this post here.  This little lefty has gotten quite good at tracing.  It all happens so FAST!  And I decided I am DONE with boots.  That was, until the blizzard came.  Ugh!

Pretty neon trimmings…I use Post-its to color code and plan my blog posts and they are wonderful.  Except that I need to trim them to fit my calendar.  Love Post-its though!  How about you?

Sweet Potato Coins via Chef Moira.  She loves to look at cookbooks and she picked out this for dinner.  A girl after my own heart…

My Irish Food contribution this holiday–SCONES!  See how I accomplished my 6 month goal of recreating Irish Scones here!  Don’t forget the butter and jam!

Admiring this little man’s curls…cause someday he will probably want to shave them off or something crazy like that!  Seriously, that HAIR!

Simple St. Patrick’s Day treats, taking over my counter.

The road trip.  Car packed, snacks doled out…and hurray for in-flight movies!

…and Jelly Bellies.  I haven’t had Jelly Belly Jellybeans in so long, I forgot how fun they are to eat.  Now I want more.

THIS is what “I’m not even tired!  I don’t ever sleep!” looks like.  I had to document it to prove a point.

Some of the best CNY food upon arrival…local Friday Fish Fry.  Awesome.  And really healthy!

The Lego Movie…finally.

Life’s toughest decisions.  (I went with the Samoa.)

The Antique Barn.  A MUST when I come to visit my Mom.  I never leave that place empty handed!

Have a great St. Paddy’s Day.  Drink a Guinness for me.  And have a full week!
