For St. Patrick's Day


Every St. Patrick's Day, we go through the early-morning-before-school rush trying to find something green for everyone to wear. The younger ones are the most determined to wear green in celebration of this day.

This year, I'm ahead of the game (somewhat). I bought two packages of boys' undershirts last week and I'm appliquing shamrocks on them. There's enough for each one of them, including a girly shirt for Spenser and a onesie for Sawyer. I just need to sew around the edges and they'll be finished. (The children don't know about these shirts. I plan to surprise them on Monday morning.)

I bought undershirts for the boys because a three-pack cost less than $5. Very reasonable. They run a little small (they are undershirts after all), so be careful buying them.

You are such a wonderful Mum. I am sure they will love the t-shirts. Must take a photo of them all wearing it ok? It will be very cute to see them all with similar outfits.

They are going to LOVE them. I remember waking up when my mother would have done something like this to suprise us. I think I may do this for my kids, thanks for the inspiration!

excellent idea - I'm not sure if my boys even have much green, so I think I'll have to do this!
