I wanted one last party before the baby was born. I also wanted to make St. Patrick's Day a big deal this year. So I threw a St. Patrick's Day party at my house for all the mothers of young children in my ward. We had about fifteen adults and thirty kids. I held the party on March 1st, way to early for it to be a real St. Patrick's Day party, but I wanted to make sure it happened before the baby was born!

Next time I would add some mangoes to have a little more Catholic representation.
