St. Patrick's Day Countdown

Soooooo, it has been FOREVER since I have blogged. I like to think that I have some pretty good excuses though. Last February I found out I was expecting and a little while later I found out we were having TWINS! Then we started house hunting. By July, I was slowing down a little and the house hunt was taking A LOT of time. Then all of a sudden in August/September we found a house, moved, and then a couple weeks later the twins were born. It's been five months since the babies came, we love them to pieces, and we are finally getting unpacked, decorated, into a routine and I am finding a tiny bit of time for crafting! I hope to do a little more blogging from time to time when I get a chance!

At our house we love holidays and we love counting down for them, so this is a fun St. Patrick's Day countdown we started this month.

I actually started making this countdown last year, but it was right about the time during my pregnancy that I was REALLY tired, so I got all the felt pieces cut out, but didn't get around to assembling everything until this year. I made the pots out of felt and added some felt "gold" and tied a little shamrock to each one with some gold string. I added some plastic gold coins and a rainbow ribbon to the top.

Each shamrock has a gold puffy paint number. Each pot is actually a little pouch that you can keep a little treat inside. Each day we read a St. Patrick's Day book and get a little treat out of the pot of gold for that day. My kids love it! (You may even be able to see their little hand prints all over the glass covering the fireplace . . . that's how excited they are to look at it and touch it!)

Is your family getting excited for St. Patrick's Day? What do you do to celebrate?
