Photos show some of my fun Saint Patrick's Day shopping.
Those of you who have elementary school children or grandchildren will understand
my post today. I have a dear 10-year old granddaughter back in Northern Virginia, AnaSofia, and I do enjoy buying "kid stuff" for her. But this year, I also have the opportunity to buy Saint Patrick's Day "fun stuff" for three more young children. Yay!
In addition to my 10-year old AnaSofia, I also shopped for a five-year old little girl, a seven-year old little girl, and an 11-turned 12 year old boy. I had a lot of fun doing that Saint Patrick's Day shopping, believe me. I really believe I have never lost my "inner child." So----I love checking out all the cute, silly, and funny St. Paddy's Day "stuff." I mailed off two large post office Priority Mail boxes for the larger family as well as a large box for AnaSofia.
Sorry this photo is sideways. My photo-editing icon stopped cooperating last night.
I found a really cute St. Patrick's Day card (copyright laws prevent my showing pix) with a photo of a chubby Pug doggie with a Sherlock Holmes hat on the front of the card. Plus, an adorable kitten card. Cute message inside, too. :) Plus, Shamrock stickers. I also found pretty little Shamrock Green play necklaces and hair bows, knitted wrist bands, several pastel colored adorable stuffed bunny rabbits, Peppermint-flavored cake mix, and a container of . . .you guessed it. . . Shamrock Green frosting. And for good measure, some of the bakery's yummy Chocolate soft cookies that have green and white M& Ms all over them. Yep. Candy-coated cookies. You've gotta love it. Oh, yes, and a booklet of all kinds of Disney Princess stickers and coloring pages, as well as a booklet of Yoda and Star Wars villains and heroes. I also found two packages of those little cars that all kids love to play with. Oh, and a magazine all about cars, all kinds of cars.
See? I wasn't kidding when I said I had a lot of fun. :)
