St. Patrick's Day 2011

I did it. I did it. I did it! I got Ellie to wear her green shirt and shoes on Aunt Patricks' Day! yaaaayyy.
It's easy to get Gabbi Girl to wear whatever! She is pretty easy going, especially in teh area of fashion.
I had a few folks on Facebook ask me where I got these green shoes. Hmmm... it was either OshKosh, Carter's or ummm... I can't remember actually. If you are local, I bought them at the Boardwalk in Shreveport.
Do you know it wasn't even a battle to get these cute little outfits on? In fact, she laid out her entire outfit the night before on the driveway, to show Paula and Emma what she'd planned on. Likely, because they went on and one about how cute it was is WHY she stuck with the plan!
How cute is that expression? This is right after Earl got up on the table and took a few of her graham crackers. NOT cool!
oh, and when the girls showed up with me at work (we went to daycare after MUCH discussion about how everyone HAS to wear green to school, only to find NO one in green! So... I turned around and took them with me to work!!), where we found GREEN pancakes waiting on us!
Now THAT's what I'm talking about it! Thanks, Mr. Karl, for understanding that holidays are to celebrated! Period!
This is Robin. She went out for me on this morning to give out some super cute things that jessi and my peeps at the Ruston clinic helped me make as a marketing mission.
Plus, it was just plain fun! WE made these cute little wrist cuffs with rosettes.
And we made sure they were full of green ness so we could deliver them on St. Pat's Day to the nurses and front office staff at the physicians who refer to us regularly.

The cards said "we're LUCKY to have you." How cute is that?!
For the most part, everyone liked our idea! Most were appreciative. The same ones usually are and the same ones usually aren't. That's the way the ball bounces.
And finally, I give you...
My most precious St. Patrick's Day gift of all... my precious little leprechaun!

Love that you took them with you to work--and love the green pancakes!! You've trained your employees right, haven't you? The bands w/ rosettes is a really cool idea! And best of all, I looove the little leprechaun at the end--she's by far the cutest little thing!!

Don't you just hate it when everyone doesn't get in the holiday spirit?? I was the only one in our office that wore green that day! One of the guys said he wasn't Irish. I told him everyone was Irish on Aunt Paddy's Day! lol

Love the pictures of the girls!

I love how you celebrate all holidays. Your marketing skill are just perfect.

I KNEW having others(esp Emma Lou) praise Ellie's outfits would work!
