Happy St Patrick’s Day

You don’t *have* to be Irish to enjoy this day – happy St Patrick’s Day!

Make sure you are wearing something green or you may get pinched… then again you might like getting pinched – snort LOL. I think daddy has his lucky green Irish shirt out to wear today and mom is wearing her green Irish socks. I think they are safe. I think they need to put my green vest on so I can be festive as well. Perhaps mom will get camera happy and take a picture for later on for every one.

I’ve got some St Patrick day facts for you – how many did you know?

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, although he was born in Britain, around 385AD. His parents Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman citizens living in either Scotland or Wales, according to different versions of his story.

Wearing green, eating green food and even drinking green beer, is said to commemorate St Patrick’s use of the shamrock. Did you know that mom and dad have been to restaurants on this date where the sweet tea is green! Shocking huh? But the bigger shocker is that the actual color of St Patrick’s Day is blue. Green became associated with St Patrick’s Day during the 19th century. Green, in Irish legends, was worn by fairies and immortals and also by people to encourage their crops to grow.

Popular Irish toats on St Patrick’s Day include, “May the roof above us never fall and may we friends beneath it never fall out.”20130216-212048.jpg

St Patrick’s Day was first celebrated in America in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737.

In Chicago on St Patrick’s Day, the rivers are dyed green.

In Seattle on St Patrick’s Day, there is a ceremony where a green stripe is painted down the roads.

Savannah, Georgia is the second biggest parade party for St Patricks day. Savannah holds a special place in my heart as well as my parents. Did you know that mom and dad adopted me from a little town about 80 miles from Savannah called Broxton. Small world huh?

Lucky Charms, a favorite cereal for young and old, was created in 1963 with it’s popular mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun. Do you remember the tune?

Hearts, Stars and Horseshoes – Clover and Blue Moons – Pots of gold and rainbows – And the red balloon. That’s the luck of me lucky charms! Their magically delicious!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day my friends from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson ❤

My Dad – The Superhero

WEEK No. 5

Okay friends – Christmas is coming up soon…for those counting 110 days – snorts.  Well my daddy, he is special – we all know that.  He loves his toys.  Literally, the man ❤ toys.  He and mom went to Wally World a couple of weeks back and the first place he goes is the toy section.  What can I say.  My father is a child at heart.  When they came back home, I found these pictures on mom’s iPhone.  OMP (Oh my pig) is all I can say… and maybe WOW.

My dad wants to be a superhero.  Now I know where I get those feelings from… I’ve always wanted to be Super Pig.  So I’m thinking that with Christmas coming up soon, I’m going to buy him a costume from me – his number one piggy son.  That’s where I need your help my friends.  In the next six weeks, I’m going to show you a picture that mommy took of daddy in the toy section.  At the end of six weeks, YOU can vote who my daddy needs to be and what I get him for Christmas.  Sounds fair to me, you?

Okay – this week’s picture – thoughts?  My dad – the Hulk.  Don’t make him angry – snorts.  You won’t like it when he’s angry.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Is it time for Bacon’s Show and Tell now?  I thought it would never get here this month.  This month we are highlighting the one toy that you really wanted as a child but never got while growing up. This should be really interesting today to see – here we go with mom’s.

When mom was little, she wanted an Easy Bake Oven.  I bet there was more than one person who wanted this that didn’t get it.  Can you believe that over the years, there have actually been 11 Easy Bake oven models?

In 1963 (way before mommy was hatched – snorts), the first one came out.  It was turquoise and cost $15.95.

In 1965 (still before mommy’s time – snorts), Hasbro introduced Easy Pop Corn Popper, Birthday Cake, Party set and Kid dinners for the Easy Bake Oven.  I guess that was one inventive way to get kids to eat their veggies.

In 1968 (mom still not born yet), General Mills came out with boxed versions for the Easy Bake oven.

Finally when mom was born in 1969 – see all of this wonderful stuff led to mom’s birth – Hasbro came out with the Easy Bake oven in green with more dials and even a hood.

Then in 1970, the green was replaced with gold and it cooked cakes twice as big.

In 1978, the Easy Bake Oven went stream lined and came out looking like a brown and white microwave.

Over the years, more improvements were made and more colors and sizes.  Nowadays, the price of the average Easy Bake Oven goes between $29.99-$39.99, depending on what kind you get.  So not much of a price difference really in 51 years.  So many kids have loved these and played with them over the years.

Mom looks back and says she wanted one then but now she has a ‘real’ oven.  She didn’t miss out on anything growing up in not having one… well maybe more calories on her butt but then again that’s a good thing she didn’t have one – snorts.

Leprechaun Catcher

20130314-212652.jpg

I have a little friend named Kelsey. She made this Leprechaun Catcher for St. Patricks Day. Isn’t it wonderful? It totally blew me away. I thought it was the cutest thing! I couldn’t wait to show it to mom. Mom thought it was awesome as well. She said that children come up with some of the most amazing things. I agree.

So I have a question for you Ms Kelsey. Once you catch that leprechaun, can I have the catcher. For some reason when I look at it, my tummy growls. 🙂
