Jamie wants to march in the St.Patrick's Day parade with his big brothers. They think he is too young. Jamie gets up early St.Patrick's Day morning and sets up to prove them wrong. He takes his brother's flute and heads up to the parade ground with the family dog to show them he is big enough.
Jamie more than anything proves to himself that he can do it. Along the way he greets and meets the other early morning risers in his town. Some even give him an orange soda, a pastry, an egg, and a small Irish flag. By the time he reaches home he has accomplished his task and left a reminder for others to see that he made it there and he made it first. There at the top of the hill is a soda bottle with a small Irish flag.
What did we do?
We added food coloring to water in the colors of the Irish flag along with white carnations. The carnations were slow to change in the large glass vases. The carnations JDaniel requested we try in blue (his favorite) color changed over night.
I love these vases. I won them as a door prize last month. They were perfect for the experiement
If you look carefully, you can see a little green. We will let them soak up food coloring and see what happens.
Thank goodness JDaniel wanted blue flowers!
We made rolls for St. Patricks Day. JDaniel loves rolls and cooking. We simply placed melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, and green sprinkles on crescent rolls. They were wonderful.
