Tricksy Leprechauns!

The morning started early. The kids were anxious to see if they had caught a leprechaun in their special trap.


Look! The trap was sprung! Surely there was a leprechaun inside!


But wait...what's that coming out of the top? It looks like...a rope. A gold rope, no less.


NO LEPRECHAUN! But he did leave behind some of his loot. If the leprechaun escaped, then that means he will play tricks on the kids. Suddenly things start falling into place. That explains why Boo had the Boy's favorite stuffed chicken in her bed and he had her new Webkinz. It was the leprechaun!


He even defaced the kids' signs. What a punk!


Hey, we aren't that bad looking a family! What? You say the leprechaun was responsible? Huh. How 'bout that.


Okay, who bought the skim milk? Oh, wait...another trick! The little booger!

The kids were finding all sorts of messes that the leprechaun was responsible for but really, those were the work of a kindergartner and preschooler.

As for me, I am blaming my bad hair day on that little green punk.

You have got to watch out for those tricky little buggers!

Better luck next year. Lets hope he continues south after today..we wouldn't want any more green milk or bad hair days! :)

So I'm reading all these great St. Patrick's ideas around the blogworld today and realizing how LAME I am! You guys are so creative. Guess what we did? Um, we wore green. Don't let all the festivity overwhelm you or anything. :)

Wow! That leprechaun sure did a bunch of tricky things at your house. :) Maybe I can blame our nasty virus on him too!! :O

What a darling idea! I LOVE it. Little Man came home from school saying the Leprecauns were naughty in his classroom, it was so cute. I am going to have to get my game on next year, cause this is starting to sound like fun! What a good mommy you are!

How fun are you!?! The trap is such a great idea! I always feel like I should celebrate the holiday because I am Irish, but I never know what to do. Next year maybe we'll try a trap and see what the leprechans do. Thanks, you're always good for some creative ideas!!

Alrighty Girl, I think you ought to publish your cute ideas weeks before each holiday so we can all steal them! I'm sure all the funny little things you do are what your kids will remember best about growing up in your home...you are such a fun Momma!

You are the bomb mom. Love those pesky critters too. How fun. It was cracking me up with the pictures turned around. Clever.

You are hilarious! Audrey went to preschool and learned about the little green punks. She spent the rest of the day looking for one.
