St. Patrick's Day and More

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Did you eat any fun foods?  Did you get pinched?

Before St. Patrick's Day, here are a few pictures from Art Night at the school.  I had a Relief Society meeting that night, so Lee took the kids.

Cal has been interested in Origami lately.  Lee bought him a beginners Origami set, but it's been kind of frustrating for him.  Hopefully he'll pick it up again soon.

For a boy scout merit badge we had to do a family project.  Clark agreed to my idea of cleaning out some outdoor crawl spaces under the house.  They were filled with junk from the prior owner and we never got around to cleaning them out.  Like Elden's get up?  We did a little bit of yard clean-up too.  I love our trash pick-up here.  They took all the junk we left at the side of the road.  YAY!

The same day that we did the family cleaning project, I left early that morning to spend some time with my sisters Stephanie and Lois before Stephanie moved to Indiana.  Come back Steph!  We went to Ellicott City, Maryland.  It's a super cute town near where Lois lives. We enjoyed walking around, visiting shops, talking and eating!  It was super fun.  We all bought some cute things.  I bought your Father's Day present Lee.  He he he.

Stephanie is expecting a baby boy the first part of August.  So exciting!

We ate at this yummy joint.

The food was great.  Loved the fries.  The roast beef sandwich and Au Jus dip were great.... though I realized I'm not a roast-beef-sandwich kind of girl! I do love a good Arby's sandwich though.  Go figure.

We had a lovely time.  Thanks to our awesome husbands for hanging out with the kids so we could have this time together!

Cal has also been doing a lot of drawings lately.  Love the lettuce stem inspiration!

I volunteered at the school the day before St. Patrick's Day to help with school pictures.  I should have taken a picture with Elden too, but didn't.

Saw this sign and thought it was kind of funny.  I don't drink Coke, but thought this was clever.  I'm so glad they didn't use "wifey".  I've seen that word floating around lately and can't stand it.  I told Lee to make sure to never refer to me as his "wifey".

St. Patrick's day arrived!  We all had green on in some way or another.  One of Lee's team members cut out a tiny four-leaf clover for him to wear on his shirt.  Not sure if Clark wore green....

Shanna and Haley made these fun shirts at Activity Days.  Activity Days is for girls 8-11.  They do fun crafts together, along with learning skills, teachings from the scriptures, etc.  Shanna and Haley love it.  Seems like Shanna didn't want her picture taken this particular morning.

Our last class for Financial Peace University was that night.  Lee and I got this cute arrangement for our friend Kim.  She is a member of the church where we taught Financial Peace and came every Thursday night to unlock doors and hang out while we had the class.  It was so nice of her to give up her Thursday nights!

Before class we had corned beef and cabbage.  My kids aren't too picky eaters, and actually LOVE corned beef.  There are some things they don't like, but they are old enough that if they don't want to eat the food items for dinner, they can have water for the rest of the night, nothing else.

Here we are after out last class!  Lee and I really enjoyed coordinating it, and are planning on doing so again in the Fall.  Our kids were sad it ended.  They were enjoying their mid-week movie night! Our group consisted of five couples and three young adults.  During the nine weeks of classes as a group they paid off $22,000 in debt and put $10,000 into savings! Pretty cool! Can you spot Lee's four leaf clover?

We found Haley that night asleep with her finger pointing at a word in a book.  Too cute.
