Green Dinner & Happy Birthday to Aaron














We had Green Chile Rellano caserole which was VERY green on the inside thanks to the help of some food coloring. Guacamole, no help needed there, green gatorade and green applesauce with pineapple mixed in. The kids called it "alien" brains. The kids complained that the chips weren't green and I guess if I had planned better we could have had guacamole chips which ARE green...maybe next year. We decided to forego the usual corned beef and cabbage and set our own theme this year. We had a lot of fun with it, and used plasticware because we wanted to have time for Family Home Evening.

Today is Aaron's birthday. He turns THREE!!!!! Now, we just have to get him fully potty trained before we can officially call him a big boy. Aaron is just going to be one of those people that makes others smile. It just comes so naturally to him, even at such a young age. Travis totally plays favorites sometimes (Aaron really takes after his daddy), and I have to remind him that he would have never let one of the other kids get away with Aaron's antics. I love my baby but pretty soon he'll be a big brother, I hope he transitions into that roll easily. Have a great day.

PS How do you like my new table cover? I gave in, I was SO tired of scrubbing dried up spilt cereal and milk off of the wood that I became my grandmother and bought a plastic cover! I think she would be proud. It might not look super stylish but it REALLY cleans up easily.

Yeah, I've done the plastic cover thing too. So I've been a granny before. The nice thing is if it starts looking to grubby you can start over.
