We've been doing a 10 day no sugar challenge that's over on Friday with just one exception St. Patty's Day!  My sweet friend from church, Rebecca, invited us over for a St. Patty's Day party and I knew sugar was going to be involved so the girls and I chatted and decided we would have one cheat day!  I'm really impressed by Alexis and Ryan who have been completely on board.  If Ry asks if she can have something I just say it has bad sugar (we're mostly just doing no cake, candy, etc they're still having fruit and all that okay for you sugar.) and she's fine with it.  She's even asked my friends when they are watching her if there is sugar in stuff before she eats it.  Lexi has been bringing home any candy from school and just handing it to me and she ever refused chocolate milk when she bought her lunch the other day (chocolate milk is a HUGE treat for her!) 

On to the party.  Rebecca is the sweetest little southern belle you'll ever meet.  She's from Columbus and she is my first counselor in the Primary Presidency.  She is FANTASTIC!!!  When she invited the girls over for Saint Patricks Day we were in for sure.  She usally just has small things b/c her son is only 1 and he does better with smaller groups so it was a very fun party for the girls who got to do everything with just them and Baby Jeff! :)  Travis, me, and the girls ended up being over there for way longer than we expected but it was nice just hanging out!  Thanks for inviting us Rebecca and Jeff!! :)

The cute set up and adorable hats the girls got to take home!
Baby Jeff hitting the pinata (he had just gotten up from nap hence the no pants!)
Ry's turn
And now Lexi.  It was a tough pinata after 2 turns each plus Rebecca's mom Travis finally had to beat it to get the treats out!
Lexi's favorite the Leprachaun scavenger hunt!!
Part of the hung involved the piano.
the pot of gold!
As you can see in the background Baby Jeff just wanted to play with the girls!

Wow! That is an awesome St. Patrick's day party!! And I am so impressed with your girls during your no sugar challenge. We are trying to cut back on sugar, but my girls don't seem to be quite so enthused. Good work, you guys!

How fun, it looks like your girls had a blast. I love that your girls are doing so well with the sugar fast. Too cute.
