Yesterday we celebrated Ellie's first St. Patrick's Day! We enjoyed a traditional dinner of corned beef and cabbage, prepared by our Irish friend Libby at her house. The meal was delicious, the weather pleasant, and the company entertaining. The day prompted me to look back on previous St. Patrick's celebrations...the venue hasn't changed but our family has! This day is just as good a day as any to recognize how lucky we are to have our family, our friends, our health, and our life as a party of five.
|The feast...soooo good!|
|Cooper amused himself with his favorite poolside activity (besides actual swimming of course)...running laps around the pool.|
|Ellie and Ma-Mas. (Germans look good in green too!)|
|Penny and Ellie watch "The Voice" and wind down at the end of the evening.|
