Here in Springfield St. Patrick's Day is a pretty big deal; there is a St. Patrick's Day 5k (in which a friend and I are running), there's a pet-contest and parade through downtown, there's a pub crawl and of course there are St. Patrick's Day decorations throughout our neighborhood. With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner surely spring must be on its way?

Still not convinced? Well perhaps the abundance of crocuses sprouting up are the true barometer of spring:

Earlier this week we attended a baby shower at Drury for Elaine and Justin. Elaine is due in Mid-May. For the shower I made rubber ducky sugar cookies. There were a few leftover cookies so put a couple of them in a ziploc baggie to take to neighbors who are expecting their first child tomorrow.
