With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Loving Those Shamrock Shake Mustache Smiles

Loving Those Shamrock Shake Mustache Smiles

Not too sure why making shamrock shake mustache faces became a tradition here but these silly leprechauns always have a delightful time of it.
A cheerful heart is good medicine
Proverbs 17:22
It began way back when Jared was just 3 1/2 and Abbey 9.
(See the band-aid on his little finger?  He had the nastiest looking wort and we applied stuff to it and covered it everyday with a new band-aid.  It took three months for the wort to go away.  It took Jared two more months to begin bending his finger again!  Oh, those fun memories!)
And the tradition continues.
{smile} the two little ones kept licking their yummy mustaches off
 Jamie couldn't leave her newest wee lassie out of the fun and rubbed a bit o'shake onto McChloe's tiny lip.
O'Jared, wearin' o' the green

A couple of years ago I posted a recipe for a minty shake (click here to view)

It is all those fun little traditions that really bonds a family with fun, isn't it? And I see precious baby Chloe got her share, too. Next year she will be reaching for her own taste! xo Diana

A friend of mine in the US will send me Jell-O so I can make your recepies :) I cant wait to try them out!
She helped me to find out some stuff that you use so I can change them to our products.
I promise to let you know and set a link to your blog and the recipies that I try out :) Hopefully you will get more visitors from Sweden that can enjoy your creations!
Have a great weekend! and I hope to see you again on my blog :)
