Now, our charts are pretty lame. In fact in 2010, Aaron called me in the middle of the day to remind me that it was St. Patrick's Day. In 2011, I'm pretty sure we completely forgot about the holiday. So any sort of effort on our part would fall into the "epic" category.
Now that Grace is a little bit older she gets excited for holidays. At Thanksgiving we did the Turkey Hunt, where she searched for turkey index cards throughout the house. She has asked to play that game a bizillion times since then, with a gentle reminder from us that we only play Turkey Hunt on Thanksgiving.
Enter St. Patrick.
In late February Target was selling little baggies of chocolate gold coins in the dollar section. I snagged a few bags and on the evening of the 16th we hid the coins all over the apartment. We taped one to Aaron's shirt the next morning and told Grace that a Leprechaun had come and hid coins all over, and he even was silly enough to tape one on Dad. Dora bucket in hand she excitedly began the hunt.
I think it's easy to guess who has the "Favorite Parent" spot in the bag.
We ended the day by reading books at the book store, which has nothing to do with the holiday either, but they were both wearing their green stuff so I tossed it in.
Now Easter is on the horizon and I am trying to figure out how I can eat as many Cadbury Mini Eggs as humanly possible without having any caloric consequences....
