St. Paddy's Tea Party
Last Sunday we took Mackie and Abby to a St. Paddy's Tea Party.
It was more fun than a barrel of leprechauns.
Tea and Irish Soda Bread were served, along with Shamrock Cookies and Wee Cupcakes all decorated with green, white and orange icing. The servers were the Wee Irish Line Dancers who also performed brilliantly for us.
Ms. Mackie made a new friend. This is Ms. Kennedy - her first name - enjoying the treats and festivities. We also made crafts and had a Treasure Hunt for a Pot 'o Gold hidden by the Leprechauns.
Ms. Kennedy and Ms. Abby were invited to try their legs at Irish Line Dancing. Ms. Kennedy was game, but Ms. Abby decided to stand and watch. She stood right there. Didn't move. In fact, the Wee Irish Dancers had to move up closer to the mirror in order to accommodate her.
You don't ever want to get her 'Irish' up.
Later, however, in the safety and security of our living room, she danced like a very gazelle. Waaaaayyyy cute.
Ah, and you know, any day is a great day to be Irish - even if you're not.
