Happy St. Patrick's! ;)

I wrote a blog a few years ago about how my family always celebrated St. Patrick's Day as a remembrance of an exceptional person and also a way to remember our heritage.

When all my girls were nearly grown, I discovered my family (McLain side) originated from Lochbuie, Scottland.  They changed the spelling from the original name (MacLaine) and eventually settled in Glasgow Ireland before my branch came to America.

So you might say we have a true Scotts-Irish heritage; none the less, we enjoy donning the green!  ;)


  1. We're pretty much Irish through and through...and we celebrated for years by going around singing at our children's schools. This year we will sing a few Irish ditties at our church. Have you ever been to Ireland? It's beautiful!! Here's one of my favorites with my family singing

    1. Wow, good for you and your family. Nothing makes me happier than hearing celtic music! No I've never been, but wish one day to tour Ireland and Scotland. I'll have to check it out! ;)

  2. You guys are really good Elise! Beautiful! ;)
