Nick's birthday is July 16th (Mark your calendars now!) But when he was little he never got to bring treats to school due to his summer birthday. So, his very clever mom had him pick a day. Being a Sweeney he chose St. Patrick's Day. Every year we make cupcakes to celebrate. They are Nick's favorite- Duncan Hines Yellow.
Here are the posts from 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 Look at how much the girls have grown!! Last year I was wearing Ellie in the wrap and this year she's walking!
This year we made the cupcakes on St. Patty's Day eve. And since Nick was teaching in Stevens Point and I was attempted to get dinner made at the same time there are fewer photos.
I printed the cupcake toppers here. The Giving Madame . We brought these to Scout's class at the YWCA Wausau yesterday for snack time.
Scout had a big St. Patrick's Day party in her class yesterday. Since it's in my job description to take photos I can walk upstairs to participate with her guilt free.
We ended the night with a dinner out at Applebee's. It was a nice, relaxing meal until Scout coughed so hard that her supper ended up on the floor. We traded a second round of drinks for an early bedtime. She's fine today.
