To The Leprokon

Yes, I know St. Patrick's Day was last week. I'm just slow.

Much like my heart-shaped pancakes that I made pink (with strawberries) for Valentine's Day, I went with a green theme for St. Patrick's Day. We had green eggs that tasted much better than they looked.
I baked green bread that could have passed for moldy bread, but was warm out of the oven. We had green smoothies with less fruit and more spinach than usual so they were really green!

But that was the extent of my plans for St. Patrick's Day. Apparently I was supposed to help the kids catch a leprechaun?

Matthew rigged an elaborate "leprechaun trap" in his room. Joshua followed suit, even alarming his with a noise trigger so that he would be woken up when the leprechaun tripped the trap. Even the girls had two traps set up in their room. I totally don't remember doing this as a kid.
Matthew left notes for the leprechaun and tried to entice him with TV and a Dyson. (A Dyson? Seriously?) He told the little green guy that he was welcome to stay until 6am. I was trying so hard not to laugh at the incredibly cute notes that were left all around this trap!

It makes me sad to think about what my life would be like if I wasn't cleaning up notes to leprechauns and making green eggs for breakfast. I really don't want my kids to grow up!
