Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I actually did some sewing!! I haven't really done any sewing other than work since Christmas, so it is about time! I made pajama pants for the whole family. The boys picked out the fabrics and were so excited when they got to wear them last night. This morning, I made green pancakes and green scrambled eggs too. They wouldn't eat the eggs, but the green pancakes were a hit! In the picture, you cannot see the green in the pancakes really well because the outsides turned brown, but the insides were bright green!


I decided to spare you the picture of me and Jerry in our pajamas, but here they are folded on the bed! I am a bit frustrated with the pattern I used for these, because they turned out so much bigger than the measurements on the pattern. I will have to alter them.

I also wanted to show you all a few shots from Ethan's birthday party this past weekend. He wanted an Ohio State Buckeye party, so I made the cake and we all wore team colors! He had a blast. Here is my very big boy at his party:
