We might be sporting last year's St. Paddy's T-shirts...
And I'm very sorry Gamma Rita, but try as I might I couldn't get anyone to sit still for a close-up of the ones that simply said "Happy St. Patrick's Day".
Unless you count the slightly out of focus one where Nate decided to do his best James Dean:
We also tried out some St. Paddy's Day crafts. There were two that involved paint - and we never got around to the rest because... paint.
The second was a thumbprint shamrock (it's up there in the left-hand corner, I swear!). Also nice, but one was enough.

And it must have been my lucky day because while I was cleaning up the mess everyone else made a very civilized "parking lot" in the hallway, complete with spaces in between "so the people can get out".
It's been awhile since either of my boys have been able to use their Nickel Fortress so it was very popular (today at least!).
I had to trick Seth into sitting still for a photo by pretending I wasn't taking his picture. I guess it worked.
And if wouldn't be a proper St. Patrick's Day without a gross green dessert. I refined things a little this year and also set some regular non-green pudding aside for myself, but it was still a hit:
*This picture does in fact have a title, but I've left it untitled for now because that is a separate post for another time. If you can figure out what it is in the meantime, I'll give you a nickel towards your own fortress.
