Cupid and Leprechauns

I am guilty of being the mom that likes to do special things on random holidays. We don’t do anything super crazy but it’s fun to do special things for the kids that really get them excited. Plus in an effort to not spoil them every day of their lives like I often want to do, this gives me an excuse for those extra surprises and treats.

This year we had a candlelight dinner with the kids. We had a yummy pasta meal and Lucy even made us all name tags. I let the kids drink from flutes and I gave them each a little valentine present. And since we don’t always eat in the dining room, that was fun too.

Then came St. Patrick’s Day and the Leprechauns found us down the Cape. It’s the one time a year the kids get Lucky Charms as a treat. I love that Jack had been talking about them visiting for weeks. The toilet water ends up green the next morning and usually gold coins and a rainbow of skittles are enjoyed for days to come.


And mixed into the last month has been some serious snow. We even had an official blizzard, Nemo. We made the most of it with lots of comfort food. We fared well and never lost power. It was quite an crazy night of snow though. We are now more than ready for spring though.
