St. Patrick's Day was so much fun this year! It was always a fun day growing up because it is my Mom's birthday. The house was always decorated in Shamrocks and we always celebrated the day.

Today I tried to make it special for my own kids. We made green pancakes for breakfast and of course we all wore our green!
Someone got tired though and didn't finish her green beans before a meltdown.We also made a leprechaun trap and put shiny things in it. Wouldn't you know it though, those sneaky guys sprung the trap, and left their footprints and a trail of gold candy all the way to the door. Hunter wasn't sure if they were real or not. He thinks he's got it all figured out though. The footprints look real and they are too small for Tessa's feet, so I couldn't have done them with Tessa to trick them. Therefore, they must be real! You gotta love the side of the fist trick for making footprints.
No one carries this old favorite of mine. I had to Netflick it. It will arrive tomorrow and I am excited to watch it again. I think the kids will love it!

Hunter watched the movie, "The Secret of Roan Inish" today. Another Irish movie. He enjoyed it while Ainsley was sleeping. I remember also liking "Darby O'Gill and the Little People". Do you have any favorite Irish movies?

  1. Cute!
    I love that Detective Hunter was trying to figure out the prints!

    My favorite growing up was Darby O'Gill, too!
    I've never seen the Gnome-Mobile, but it strikes me funny that it's the same kids from Mary Poppins?
