We're calling this post Green White and Gold cause that's the color combination we used to decorate our little tree for St. Patrick's Day. If you remember we talked M into keeping it out when they packed away the Christmas decorations so we can change it for the different holidays.
We asked her to buy us a shamrock cookie cutter cause we were going to make salt dough ornaments and she did buy us one but it was like humongous!!! Like, Mom, what's with you? Did you even think about why we wanted a shamrock cookie cutter? We didn't want it for cookies but since we have it we guess we wouldn't mind if you made us some sugar cookies.
Since we didn't have a small cookie cutter we had to think of something else to decorate with. Lucky for us we're clever at coming up with ideas. It's that and the fact M took us to the craft store to see if there was something there we thought we could use.
Here's how our tree turned out. We think it's pretty and hope you do to. If you don't think so, don't tell us cause we worked on it really, really hard and spent all of our allowance decorating it.
So, what do you think Sampson, do you like the tree?
There are only three different types of decorations on this tree and they are either green or white or gold. There's a checkered bow on the top that is all three colors.
The gold is the leprechaun's gold coins. Neato!! We got to drill holes in the coins with M's drill. That required supervision cause it's a power tool.
Sampson is really taken with the bowl of pillows. M is making some that look like shamrocks and 4 leaf clovers. She says they're called tucks or bowl fillers. We just call them pillows.
We wrapped the basket that the tree sits in with green and white fabric and tied a white ribbon around it.
We think we had a good idea when we decided to keep the tree out. M said, "I can't wait to see how you're going to decorate it for Ground Hog's Day." She thinks she's funny but we think she's a doughnut short of a dozen.
Is anyone else hungry? Talking about doughnuts made us think about the birthday cake in the kitchen. We're going to get some cake and then we're going to visit our bear friends who post on Fridays.
We almost forgot to tell you something really exciting. We got out applications for Camp Good Bear in the mail this week and M said we can both go. We're so excited cause we're going to see a lot of our bear friends there and it's going to be so fun!!!!
Have fun and eat lots of peanut butter and honey with plenty of hot chocolate and laugh and play all day. That's what we always do.
Heaps of hugs,
