I LOVE the color


The first thing you see when you walk into my house is GREEN. I just realized today that every room in my house has some shade of the color green in it. Most of my wardrobe is green...I'm so drawn to that color. Lucky me...my eyes are even green. I guess loving the color green is reason enough for me to celebrate St. Patrick's Day today. We had a fun day today...sunny skies and 72 degree weather was another reason to celebrate this day the Lord has made. After picking Caedmon up at school, we packed a picnic lunch and headed to the park. My mom met us there. Kaiya went home from the park with Grandma and tonight we got an email from her with this picture attached.

Hi Mom

Hey Green is my favorite color too :)

Don't you just love the interview answers?!?! I did it with Kael today and I was surprised at her answers. She's pretty young so I figured that she wouldn't say much, but she did. Evidently I like to shop. LOL

Sherri, isn't it great to know you could be famous for being nice to people? I hope you were nice to that cop who pulled you over!

I did a green supper for St. Patrick's Day last year, and I colored the macaroni and cheese green. It wasn't a huge hit with the kids, and for a long time afterward, Owen would specify he wanted "WHITE macaroni"!!

This post is great! The 'cutting a tree down' answer made me laugh =) I'm not so good at that either...or burning leaf piles but that's another scary story....may God bless you today Sherri =)

I've been carrying a green purse for awhile. The last week or so, I've been realizing that I also wear a lot of green. Those interviews have been pretty entertaining.

Sherri, what a fun day you had on St. Patty's! I loved your interview with Caedmon and had to laugh and smile all the way through. I think he loves his mom pretty much. Sorry about the speeding ticket. I came pretty close one time, but fortunately just got a written warning. Love, Mom Ruby
