St. Patrick's Day Weekend

We had a productive St. Patrick's Day weekend. I'd say it was relaxing, but that only applies to Noelle and me. Alex was busy re-sodding the back yard!

Saturday started off right with green eggs and green waffles in honor of St. Patty's Day:

Looks appetizing

Then Alex took Noelle to Home Depot for a 'lawn care' seminar, to see how he could get our grass to grow better. As it turns out, Noelle was his lucky charm for the day. The organizers of the class thought she was so cute (and that it was sooo cute Alex brought her) that instead of helping him reseed the lawn, they gave him enough sod to do it for practically nothing. Score! Alex paid someone w/ a truck $30 to get it home and got to work.

'After' (beer in hand!)

Alex accomplished a huge amount in such a short time! I did my part, a little, by making good snacks throughout the day =)  Noelle really liked keeping Daddy company in the back yard. She was in and out of the house all afternoon.

Homemade doughnuts, with green sprinkles =)

We rounded out the weekend with a trip to Target (do I ever make it through a weekend without a trip to Target?). Surprisingly, Noelle B-lined it for the T-Ball helmets and tried to put them on. Where does she get these ideas? 

I'm old enough to play, really!
