I love St. Patrick’s day and I feel there’s so little time to celebrate it between Valentine’s and Easter. I found a couple ways you and the family can enjoy a lil luck ‘o’ the Irish in the coming weeks.
St. Paddy’s Peas and Potatoes
St. Patricks Day is the traditional day to plant potatoes.Learn more about them while listening to tales of leprechauns. Kiddos get to plant peas and potatoes in the garden. March 12th at 1pm.

My daughter loves fairies. When the weather is nice we actually have gone on walks looking for real fairies. Well if your little one is into the whimsy they’ll probably love the Lil Fairy Door. This is a door that can be put on your wall in a book shelf pretty much any where your fairy likes to get in and out of your house while you’re sleeping. You leave her notes.. and she writes you back. Adora sometimes leaves her gifts.. and she gets surprises sometimes too. The fairy is always watching.. kind of like Elf on the Shelf. She wants to make sure you’re being on your very best behavior. She also has teeny tiny fairy ears .. so when you scream it really hurts. Sometimes I have to remind the kids of that. We got our fairy door here but it took a while to come in because things were back-ordered. Since then I found some cheaper ones with adorable accessories on etsy.
Found these fun accessories at 15Monkeys on Etsy!
Adora looking for fairies in 2014
Do you ever scroll through your camera roll for pix and videos you took years ago? I was stuck waiting at a place with no wi-fi (heaven forbid!) so I decided to look at the oldest stuff stored on my phone. That's when I came across this video. It's of Adora 2 years ago on a quest to find real fairies. As time goes by…it's amazing how one can forget little moments, sweet frames of childhood captured on the fly.Thank goodness for that crummy wi-fi.

The kids will have a blast in the snow but at one point you gotta come in and warm up and drink some cocoa. Then what? It’s a perfect time for them to make their valentine’s for those they want to share the love with. I’ve included some that are wasy to do. You’ll just need to grab a few things while you’re at the store before the big snow hits! For more ideas on beating cabin fever including how to paint the snow check out my segment on KLG & Hoda.
