Happy St. Patrick's Day ~ 2009

Someone was a cranky mess today.
Can you guess who?

The only tradition that we celebrate on this holiday is to wear green. This year the kids decided to take the celebration a step further and had a poop-a-thon! Yes, I said poop. Sorry. It's my blog and my reality right now. Ryan had an explosive one during nap that almost caused me to cry and Kara...well, Kara's was green in color thanks to the green beans she ate last night. I guess she was really into the green theme today!

Fun times.

Kara not only had a poop marathon but she decided that she only wanted a 45 minute nap today. This caused for a cranky, miserable baby most of the day. I think the teething is to blame.

Ryan decided that Kara needed some hugs....


....and after some brotherly love, she started to turn that frown upside down!


Once hugs were shared, play time was had by all.



Here is Ryan showing off his new sand and water play table. He loves it and would spend the entire day outside playing in it if we allowed him...


We got the table on Sunday and surprised him with it after his nap. It didn't take him long to fill it with trucks and sand toys! He can't wait for the warm weather to arrive so water can be added to the other side.


Even a rough day filled with poop and crankiness, can immediately melt away when I see her smile.


HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

Awwww, even crying, Kara looks adorable! Now why can't my older kids get along well with my little twins the way your son does with his little sister?? Good God, there's always a smackdown going on over here!! I should show them the pics on your blog and say "see, that's how an older sibling acts"!!

The table looks like a blast!! A friend of ours is giving us the one that her son no longer uses and it's very similar to the one you got Ryan...I can't wait to see the looks on Cole and Bella's faces when we get it over here!

I'm with you on the poop-a-thon...sometimes I feel like I'm running an assembly line!

If it makes you feel any better Addie had a "really wish I could poop" day. Ryan and Kara are so cute together!

The sand table looks like so much fun. I could probably spend hours entertaining myself at one of those things. Oh to be a kid!

Poor Kara...she did not look Happy on St. Patty's Day! Only person that wore green in our house was Mark. I'm happy just to fit in clothes at all after Emma...Green was last on the list ahaha!

Someday you'll look back on these times and miss all the poop. Ha! No you won't, who am I kidding?

What a neat toy! I'd play with it. I'm slighty worried that when I do have kids, I'll swipe all of their toys while they are napping or at school.

Even when she is crying, Kara is still pretty cute. I notice that there are still no pics of you. . .

And BUMmer about the poop... I bet that made for a crappy day...

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

I'll have an award on my blog for you tomorrow (Thursday)!

Her hair is getting so blonde! Love the pigtails. Sorry I am so late in commenting, been gone all weekend. I'm sorry that this day was so rough. I know how awful it is when the little one takes bad naps. :(
