How we CeLeBraTe St. Patty's...

How many of you have those pesky little leprechauns visit this time of year?  They always seem to find us.  We never know what we'll find when we wake up on St. Patty's Day. 

So last year we set a trap...

 

We left a trail of lucky treats leading to a pile of chocolate gold and rainbow cupcakes (cause that's what their after, you know).


...but they escaped...


And ran wild through the house...


Turning things green...yep, even the milk!


They left green treats...



They messed with the furniture...strong little buggers!


And our breakfast (eggs)!


They splattered rainbow everywhere!


And left us a tricky little lunch...


And for dinner, a little Irish ale...our version anyway.


This year we're determined to catch one...my boys have been planning and scheming for weeks.  Watch out little leprechauns!  We're ready for you this year!

How do you celebrate St. Patty's?
