This one's for you, Mom!

Way back in the early 1900s ... a young lass sailed across the sea from a beautiful land to an unknown harbor... this brave girl was Anastasia Murray Mithchell, our grandmother. In honor of her, and the many other Irish family long gone from us, we eat, drink and dance around like silly fools celebrating the day of the green. Here's how we celebrated in the Arroyo household...i know, Arroyo, not so Irish..= ) We did a few irish jigs, sang Oh, Danny boy... ate green jello, and looked at photos of grandma Mitchell and the pics of our trip to Ireland in '99 (robert & me). This was our little party...we're having the real deal, corned beef & cabbage & irish soda bread ...my version, of course, this sunday with all the family...can't wait!

Our Playset has morphed into a Pirate's bird nest as Wade added a 3rd level. No need to worry about Syd or Dec, they have become natural monkeys!

Amelia really got into the superbowl this year. For some reason it did for the rest of us also, just not as crazy as her!
Check out what is writen on her right arm. (it reads "go cradinals".)
Her knuckels read "Matt Lienart"
Last but not least, Amelia's reaction to the final few seconds of the game.
OH well, there is always another season:-( GO Cards!!!!







Here is some of the gold we found at our house under the rainbow.

Sydney in all her girly glory and Declan fighting off scurvy with oranges after his long pirate voyages.
