Thanks for the well-wishes, Alice. I've got my potatoes and cabbage in the crock pot (no meat), and now I'm off to mass.

Then on Cinco de Mayo, we'll all celebrate the Mexican heritage. I love the fact that we celebrate all these different cultures, regardless of whether or not they happen to be the ones we grew up with.
Love this.

BTW...I just read that St Joseph's Day is also Fathers Day in Italy, as well as a few other countries.

Tomorrow one of the teachers will bring in lots of pastries for lunch. They all look so good.

But (hidden confession time: ) Italian last name or not, I have absolutley no desire to eat the Italian pastries. I hate cannolis and all the other goodies. (Give me a loaf of bread and some butter, and look out. But I'm not into Italian pastries.)

A very Happy St. Joseph's Day to all those celebrating!

I think that's what they were. They had a little cherry on top. Where we bought them they called them St. Joseph cakes.

Had a shamrock shake and wore our green!!!
I love St.Patrick's day it's fun to see everyone wearing green...we don't really have holidays that have a specific color that everyone wears.
