Would You? Could You?


In a car?
Eat them! Eat them!
Here they are.
 
Probably one of the best known children's books of all time.
I know it was a personal favorite of mine and my children.
 


I was thinking about St. Patrick's Day and green things and this popped into my head.
Over the years I've always done something silly and "green" for the kids.
Pancakes, toilet paper...that was a huge hit!!
Milk....not so much, there is something very disconcerting about dairy that's gone green!

So green eggs & ham tomorrow?
Maybe...


What about you...do you have any special St Patrick's Day traditions....green or otherwise?
I'd love to hear!

Wishing you a 
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My mom used to make green milk when we were little for St Patty's Day. I always struggling drinking the green milk, just not right!

I always love that book, and my daughter does too. When she was young I used to read it to her every night.

How did I miss this :(

How did the green eggs and Ham work out?? :)

This is not my son's fav. book even though we read it a lot because his name is SAM, he did get teased a lot at school, Sam I am, NOT, so it took him a while to appreciate it :)

We don't really do much for St. Paddy's Day, but when I was a young kid our Irish relatives would send us fresh Shamrock to wear on the Day, with our Irish coloured ribbons and harp pins or brooches. :)

Hope you had a lovely St. Paddy's Day, cheers, T. :)

Other than wearing a bit o'green and having corned beef and cabbage I can't say as we really do anything extraordinary. However the other day we did have an amazing experience, which would have been lovely had it happened on St. Patrick's Day, unfortunately it took place on just a normal, run-of-the-mill day.
My hubby and I were on our way to a big box discount club, BJ's, when we noticed a faint rainbow in the distance, the sky was cast heavily with clouds and many were dark and filled with rain. As we approached the rainbow closer it became slightly more distinct and the front of rain, like a curtain, lay ahead of us. Once we broached the front the raindrops began pelting our windshield the faint rainbow become now quite distinct and colorful; it's end, the fabled end of the rainbow, was actually touching the hood of our car. It followed us but for a few brief seconds and then we left it behind.
I realize that this was just an illusion, a play on light but that's the closest we've ever been to a rainbow, and I must sadly say that there was no pot of gold at it's end. Perhaps, of course, we were at the wrong end of it? And perhaps mischievous, little leprechauns were at the other end of this rainbow as well, giggling over the fact that they had once again tricked some foolish humans. ;)
