Leapin' Leprechauns!

One thing I know about me is, I like having a reason to celebrate. And St. Patrick's day is a great reason. Why?

  1. Green is my favorite color.
  2. Pretend creatures are involved (leprechauns).
  3. These leprechauns are sneaky and grumpy and have lots of treasure.
  4. I like treasure.
So, imagine my kids' excitement this morning when I told them that a real live leprechaun had come by and left them a little something. Maggie just stared at me and kept saying "Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh." It was like she'd won the Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes. And that was before she'd started the scavenger hunt and found the treasure.

We followed the clues:

And at the end we found enormous green suckers and green parachute toys! 

And we were happy.

The treasure hunt is a GREAT idea.

How fun!! I can just imagine Maggie's "Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh." Hilarious. And you're right--who doesn't love treasure?

I dropped the ball this year. I was going to make green pancakes, but didn't sleep well and forgot. You're awesome!

Ha! Those leprechauns are sneaky little devils.

Yes. I am always happy when mythical creatures leave me treasure. Every darn time.

The boys are getting so big.
