St. Paddy's Day Ribbits?

We were supposed to make shamrock shaped cookies in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Me, being a loser mom, didn't get around to making them on time for the holiday. The boys were still really wanting to make cookies, so I decide to help them the other night. I dug through our box of cookie cutters to look for the shamrock one. I dig ... and dig ... and dig ... and dig. You'd think I'd have a shamrock cookie cutter with all of these stupid things ...

Nope. I couldn't find the stupid shamrock. I'm wondering what I'm going to do with all the green icing I'd bought when I see a frog shape. Well, it just happened to be the first day of spring. Frogs are spring-like and they spring around, hopping from place to place. They would be perfect. So, we've got most of the frogs cut out and on the cookie sheets when Neil starts digging around in the box again. What do you think he finds?

TYPICAL! Isn't that how it always is? I swear, I dug through that box from top to bottom. Oh well. It was three days past St. Patrick's Day. Shamrocks are boring anyway, so we had a frogs instead. Of course, these are just a few of them. I didn't include the ones the boys decorated holding toothpick swords or the ones with super sharp teeth. Sheesh -- boys are so weird.


  1. St Patrck's Day has so many good memories of the nuns who schooled us in The Convent of The Holy Infant Jesus. When that day came along, the nuns would wear a shamrock .Bless them,they are all gone now.

  2. That looks like a ninja frog!

  3. I love the frogs. I'm sure they were more exciting to eat too!

  4. You are NOT a loser mom. And your frogs are fabulous!
