Mythical beings & Spring-y things...

This year, we attempted to catch a leprechaun. (Not one of those mean horror movie leprechauns with the snaggle toothed mouths, more like the sweet cartoon faced Lucky Charm little guy.)
I mean really, we may have better luck getting rich off of a leprechaun's gold than we do winning the lottery.... and it's a lot more fun this way.

Friday night, we set up a trap. Middle Little, Abbie, thinks Lucky Charms cereal is leprechaun bait so thats what was laid out on a sparkly gold plate (because everyone knows leprechauns are attracted to anything gold and sparkly).

Because a laundry basket trap is sure to securely capture one of them.

We woke up to find a mess of chocolate gold coins throughout the house. Apparently the sneaky little leprechaun avoided being caught in the trap and instead made a mess and hung out in the living room watching TV and snacking on Lucky Charms cereal and Sprite.

The leprechaun did leave a few treats along the way. Then there was this... the nasty little jerk used the restroom and as middle Little pointed out with a *gasp* "he didn't even flush the potty?!!" The nerve! (Really, the looks on their faces were worth every chocolate gold coin on the planet.)

After cleaning up the mess the tiny little cereal munching dude made, we finished up our day with a lucky Irish meal, dessert fit for two leprechaun chasing Littles and a toast of the annual green brew. In our silliness of celebrating  today, I am reminded of  our many blessings and how "lucky" we are. Until next year little leprechaun dude... your a** is mine. ;-)

Now onto Spring-y things... fru-fru girly sewing projects for my girls.
I think I hear the Easter Bunny high fiving the leprechaun in the distance.

"May your blessings outnumber
The Shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go."
