for the first time in what feels like FOREVER we spent a weekend doing something other than fixing up our house. we had tickets to see john mulaney friday night and oh my god, i haven't laughed that hard in ages. if his tour is coming anywhere near you, do yourself a favor and go. your insides will hurt for days afterwards but you'll still thank me later. after the show we finished off the evening with a late night slice of pecan pie at soho. okay, two slices. it was perfection.
sunday, on the other hand, was all about the boys. wes's teacher has been having fun with his class all week in preparation for st. patrick's day. the "leprechaun" has been sneaking in to their classroom and tipping over desks and messing up the room whenever they're away. he learned a leprechaun song and we even had to make a leprechaun trap for him to take in the other day. in other words, it's been a magical and exciting week for him and i couldn't let the real st. paddy's day go by with out a little fun at home. so we messed up the house a little, laid down some tiny green footprints and a makeshift pot of gold (chocolate) and waited for wes to find it in the morning. his reaction was priceless. it was totally worth it. i can't tell you the last time i did anything much to celebrate st. patrick's day (even though my mom's maiden name is mcguinness) but there's something about having kids that makes every holiday so much more fun.
oh, and in case you're wondering, josh is to thank for the green food coloring in the toilet ;)
