Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top O'Mornin' To Ya! {Southern Irish way of saying "Good Morning!"}

I have to apologize today because I won't have my usual picture day with all the St. Patrick's Day stuff like in the past. My family is still recuperating from this past weekend's sickness. Hopefully, I'll be able to make it up to you in the next celebrated holiday.

I'm telling you what, I feel like I'm about a month behind on all that's heading my way in the next couple of weeks. I just don't feel ready for Colton's birthday party. There are just some things that I haven't been able to knock out. I wanted to put Colton's picture in the local paper for his 1st birthday, but either weather has spoiled my plans or viruses. Ugh. I know it will all come together by the end of the month. Millard and Peggy did allow me to go to Walmart yesterday. Yay! While I was there, I went ahead and got my Easter shopping done. I asked one of the sales associates there if they will be selling the "Hide 'em & Find 'em Eggs." She told me that not all Walmart stores will be selling this item. Ugh! I'd really like to get some for Colton & Katie. If your Walmart has this product, I'd very interested in purchasing them. You might remember me writing about the eggs HERE the other day.  The website also said that Rite Aid is supposed to be carrying them as well.  I'll have to check there next.  Please leave me a comment, if you can easily get your hands on them. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day To Ya! 
I actually have Irish blood in me.  My grandmother's maiden name was "Powers."  The Powers family geneology traces back to Ireland.  My dad likes to aggravate my mother about being Irish.  When she is in one of her stubborn moods, he'll tell her it's the Powers coming out of her.  LOL! It's a family funny because now dad has my brother-in-laws saying it about my sisters.  Doug has yet to make the "Powers" reference to me. 

Irish Song
I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before.

May the Luck of the Irish be with you!

I'll check our Wally World for those eggs and let you know if I find them.
