McGee Family Dinner O' Green

The long awaited day of March 17th finally rolled around. It was time to put on some green and eat some green food too. In fact, Hunter was so excited to wear his green shirt that he pranced out of his bedroom at 11:00pm the night of the 16th (after being tucked into bed in his PAJAMAS) in his green shirt and jeans. He came out and said, "I'm already for St. Patrick's Day!!" We made him put his pj's back on and go to sleep.
But, on the morning of the 17th, we all put on our green shirts and looked very Irish for the occasion.

We had a beautiful table of green for dinner.
(notice the shamrocks on the plates made of spinach)

Our dinner: Watermelon/Kiwi Kool-aid, Pesto chicken and pasta, and broccoli

Dessert: Lime Jell-o mixed with soft ice cream
My mom used to make this for us. I don't know if there was a recipe or not, but I thought it was good.
Can't wait to do it again next year!

How fun! My boys have an awful mom. We didn't even wear green! No offense, but I hope the dessert tasted better than it looks! What a cute dinner and family. We love you!

Ha! You guys are so cool! I have to agree that the dessert looks unappetizing, but I'm sure it was good.
