|Seamus, Katie and Helena|
We started off St Patrick's Day going to morning mass, but since our Priest forgot it was Sunday, we celebrated with St Patrick's Day/Birthday donuts until the trio went to catechism. We then visited with Grandpa and Grandma Huddas, Aunt Becca, Aunt Christie, Drew and Clay before we headed back home. Although our St Paddy's Day evening plans usually involve going to Aunt Debbie McAleer's house, she decided to take a year off from her annual shindig. Since it was a Sunday , we went to our usual Sunday stop at Grandpa and Grandma Murphy's. It was a bit smaller than my sisters get together, but larger than a usual Sunday. We got to visit with Uncle Tim and his family, Uncle Dan and his clan, and uncle Ed. We had Irish drinks and ate traditional boiled meat before indulging in the Birthday Cheesecake Aunt Robin made. The kids enjoyed playing with their cousins, Aunts and Uncles before we headed out to get the kids (and us) home by bed time.
