St. Pat’s Pics

As it turned out we did have a traditional, cabbage-inclusive holiday after all. I was afraid to post about it pre-party yesterday. When you have two sets of twins you never know when broken bones, vomit, hershey squirts, or just plain old tiredness will creep in and ruin your plans.

We went to our friends house for an Irish feast. My children mostly behaved. Jackson spent some time in the corner after refusing to apologize for acting like a 4-year-old. Eventually he did it, but I am pretty sure his mouth was saying “I’m sorry” but his brain was saying “I hate you Mom.”

The spread, corned beef and cabbage (2 ways baked & boiled)

My (1st) helping

My contribution. I threatened to bring poop in a bowl, but settled on these governor bars. The recipe can be found at Pennies on a Platter, which is my favorite food blog.

Thanks Tamara & Eric for a great night. Sorry about Jackson…I could say he was tired or having a rough day, but it would be a lie.

About Twinisms

I am the mother of two sets of twins that are ten years apart. Each of them has moments where they say and do hilarious, frustrating, and crazy things.I counter that by also doing borderline crazy things. It's a good time.
