Shamrock Gettin' Lucky Cookies

^^My mischievous little leprechauns^^

A not so very long time ago, my roommate Laura, and I wanted to make Valentine's day cookies.  But lo and behold, we didn't have a heart shaped cookie cutter!  So instead, we ended up using my shamrock cookie cutter--the same cookie cutter the boys and I used today, actually.  We girls smothered our cookies with frosting and candy and thus, that fateful day so many years ago, the "Gettin' Lucky Cookie" was born!  I still laugh at the memory.  It was one of those silly moments from college I'll never forget.

So to celebrate St. Patrick's day this year, the little boys and I wore green (Of course!  I got pinched a dozen times this morning by some obnoxious young fellow when I was wearing my obviously not-so-green pajamas) and made our own version of shamrock "Gettin' Lucky Cookies".  This afternoon I set a bowl of green frosting and everything else needed on the table outside and let Jed and Levi loose to create.  It was a MESS!  And kind of gross too.  I couldn't help laughing out loud though.  Each cookie needed gobs and gobs of frosting.  And each cookie needed twice that amount of sprinkles.  It was a sugary-sweet finger-lickin' good time. 

So, tell me, how do you celebrate St. Patrick's day?

^^My ever thoughtful Jed made sure to reserve a special cookie just for Dad.^^
^^Guzzling the last of the sprinkles.  Yes, they both did it!^^
^^Levi sure got lucky with that mouthful of frosting!  At one point, Levi turned to me and said, "Mom, my tummy hurts!"  Hahaha.  I'll bet it does, Bud.^^

  1. Decorating sugar cookies is always fun to do. Along with eating the frosting by the spoonful, I'm with Levi on that one! Kids sure do make holidays more fun, don't they?

  2. I want to be a fun mom like you! Or maybe I could just be one of your kids. That would be even better!

  3. Yes, my son does more taste testing than actually making the cookies. Your "Shamrock Gettin' Lucky" cookies sound delicious. They have a great name too!
