Today, St. Patrick's Day, is a very special day. Everyone is supposed to wear green, remember St. Patrick bringing the good news of Christ to the island of Ireland, and look for their lucky four leaf clover.
But for me, it has an even better thing to celebrate - the birth of my one true love.
Today Andy turns 30. My Leprechaun is the same age as me for two short months and can no longer call me his "old lady", as he loves to do for the rest of the year!
On Saturday we had a small birthday party for him.
Ribs, pasta salad, fresh rolls and potato chips.
Kid friendly cake, with the mandatory 3 0 candles.
Adult friendly, very delicious, soaked in liquor, made by my friend Mary, Tiramisu - Andy's favorite desert. (and a very cheesy grin also...)
My favorite birthday guest, Mary's new baby, wearing an outfit that use to belong to my boys - years and years ago. Man, do they grow fast!
Little Maddy, playing with the streamers and balloons.
It was supposed to just be a few friends over, but when Andy ran out to get the ribs, the boys and I ran to Wally world and bought balloons, streamers and a birthday banner.
We had to dress it up a little, right? It is the big three oh!!
Happy Birthday Andy!!
