You're my Pot of Gold!
Each sack has a pair of St. Patrick's Day socks and a pack of green gum. I found the socks at Dollar Tree and scooped up as many pairs as we needed. I thought socks are always a useful item and they were cute, too! The funny part is that when I bought them it was during Valentine's Day time and the worker thought that because some of the socks had kissy lips on them that they were trying to combine the two holidays. I had to explain to her that it goes with the saying "Kiss me, I'm Irish!" She had a light bulb moment! Ha Ha!
Emma has a boy who has joined the class and the socks were most definitely for girls, so I had to get a box of skittles and then he got a pack of gum, too. The tag is the same but I wrapped it all up with the shamrock paper.
I ended up by going to a training class on Saturday for my church calling and each table had gold coins for us to take home. I was lucky and ended up with 12 coins. I'd call that a blessing! So...each pot now has its coin and all is right in the world!
P.S. If you look at the picture above and peek under the watermark you will see a stray piece of chocolate that escaped his lips! I didn't notice it until I had snapped the picture! LOL! It isn't there anymore!
Despite eating 11 gold coins, my little munchkins are my "pots of gold" and I am LUCKY to have them for children! Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks for fluttering by!
