...okay it's really evening, but that phrase just seems fitting for St. Patrick's Day
When my boys were little Josh and I had heard of a tradition where children put their shoes out and the next morning they were filled with candy (magically ;) We decided it must be for St. Patrick's Day and started the tradition then and there. Our boys loved it and we had been doing it a lot of years, when I heard the tradition of St. Nicholas' Day...and that you leave shoes out to be filled with treats...Well, it seems we were mistaken, but nonetheless, the tradition stuck in our family.
Last night the boys left their shoes out and our lovely (some years naughty), leprechaun left treats and decorated our fireplace with shamrocks and confetti.
For dinner we had our traditional Irish Stew, Irish Soda Bread and rootBEER (still not sure if we should do the last one, but I figure as Beer is as Irish as it gets...rootbeer works, and I think it is funny). Irish soda bread is way better than it looks good
