For as long as I can remember, my mom has been buying these green frog cupcakes on St. Patrick's Day. She always bought only one, and we would split him between the six of us:) The whole day, us kids would look forward to that sliver of green cupcake. She still buys the frog- now one for each of our own families:) I think the only reason I ever wanted to leave home was so that my frog ration would increase:) I knew marrying would get me my own frog. Even now, I still can't wait for my piece-- and it's much bigger, split between four than six. (I am slighty obsessed about this frog. So is my sister, Jen...She has confessed to sneaking over to the bakery one year and buying a bunch of them...Ate them all right then and there in her car-- and she is in her twenties...Yeah, he is that good;)
That's our big thing...eating this frog. I think Niamh licked her bowl. And Philly's, too. We are breeding the same frog cupcake obsession in them I guess:)
I feel absolutely no remorse cutting that little sucker into pieces:)...
Niamh wore her favorite holiday necklace to school. I stacked up the pins on her sweater, too. (Later, I found out that this is not really a look she was into...but she humored me:).
And my sick little guy managed to wear a green pair of pj pants all day...He wasn't feeling too festive, but he kept down the frog:)
Hope you had a nice holiday as well!...And if you'd like to be a part of the card swap (check it out here), email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by tomorrow morning!! Have a good night!
