When the kids woke up, they were wearing green. I didn't want to have to pinch them!!! I dressed them in some green too. I told Cadence she had to wear green or she could get pinched. She was paraniod all day about getting pinched!!!! I was in charge of the storytime activity for our ward today and chose a St. Patrick's Day story about a parade and leperchauns. A "leperchaun" put shamrocks all over the church with clues about where he hid a treasure. Unfortunately, Cadence and Cooper were the only ones that were there for the story and leperchaun hunt. Once again, Cadence was afraid of what the leperchaun might be like and I had to drag her from clue to clue. At the end, she was so relieved to find a bucket of candy all for herself (she thought!) While Cadence at the candy Kisses filled with caramel, Cooper ate the green shamrocks and turned himself a little green.
While Cadence and Cooper were eating their treat of choice, Carolyn-Kate showed up. We decorated a green sash and had a small parade around the gym!
Aren't CK and Cadence cute?
That evening we had corned beef and cabbage with the Coltrin family. I forgot to get pictures because there were so many kids running around and it was crazy! Cadence learned a lot about St. Patricks Day this year. Hopefully next year, she won't be so scared!
