Luck O' The Irish

We had some sneaky leprechauns get into our house on St. Patrick's Day... they left us a box of Lucky Charms and some new green shirts. Olivia wanted so badly to catch one of them, but none of us saw them! Coleman swears he heard them sneaking around under his bed though. They also turned our toilet water green, and the milk in our fridge! Can you imagine the nerve??? Olivia made sure that we all wore green pajamas to bed so that the leprechauns wouldn't get under our covers and pinch us.
Coleman asked if the leprechauns were real, and answered his own question by saying that he had it all figured out, Santa Claus sent his elves out dressed up like leprechauns and they are the ones that got into our house. In this picture he is showing off his newfound ability to roll his tongue--does it resemble anything??

Today the kids tried to set traps to catch them in the back yard, but I'm quite sure those pesky buggers won't be back until next year.
Handsome guys in green, wouldn't you say?

Coleman's quip: This morning we were reading our scripture (John 15:26: "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.") and I asked the kids to figure out two other names for the Holy Ghost. After reading it a few times, Olivia identified the Spirit of Truth and I was trying to help Coleman come up with "Comforter". I told him it started with a "C" just like his name and I read it again. He said, "Oh, I know! It's customer!" We had a good little chat about the Comforter and I think it's all clear to him now :).

**Did any leprechauns sneak into your house on St. Patrick's Day???

Dang, you put us to SHAME! We totally forgot about the holiday (it's easy to forget without school-aged kids). I like the green toilet water though!

You are the cutest little family! Thank you for being so inspirational! I want to be like you when I grow up.

This makes me so excited to have kids old enough to have so much fun on holidays. Holidays have been so boring compared to how they used to be since I was a kid and soon they will be fun again!

Zach refused to wear green, so I teasingly pinched him througout the day. He's gonna get it in school if he doesn't learn to celebrate this one! :o)

For our FHE treat I made the homemade oreos and mint-greened the filling. Delish!

You are the cutest mom! You make me want to start over with our six kids! Not really! But it does giv me some cute ideas for the grandkids! Believe it or not, they're better than having your own!

Lisa, your blog is so cute! And what a fun way to celebrate St. Patty's day. I can't wait to start doing fun things like that with my kids. :)
