The leprechauns made a visit

Happy Saint Patricks Day! During the night the leprechauns made a visit to our house.

My mom was reading a blog the other day and the poster showed how the leprechauns stopped at their home and left a bunch of green candy. I did not see the post, so sorry if this was your idea. If so, let me know and I will give you credit. Anyways, I copied her idea. Here is what we did.

On each of my sons' bedside tables we left a bunch of green candy, oops, I mean the leprechauns left a bunch of green candy.
Then from their rooms they left a trail of gold coins leading into the bathroom (if you follow my blog, yes, they are using their new bathroom).
In the bathroom the leprechauns left a pile of gold coins on the bathroom sink. They must have been playing in the water because the sink and toilet both had green water.

Update- The boys just left for school, of course wearing green. Since they are both older, 14 and 12, I didn't know if they would get into the leprechaun thing. They did, huge hit. Nick even came downstairs and said the leprechauns messed his room up (Ummm for some reason I think the room was already a mess before the naughty leprechauns stopped by). And then when he couldn't find his jacket, you guessed it, the leprechauns must have hidden it. Mom in High Heels just left a comment about her blog. They are several hours ahead of us, she posted about the green food they had for Breakfast and lunch. Now I'm off to the store so we can have a green dinner.

What a great idea! We've never really "celebrated" St. Patrick's Day, but I'll have to try this!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Happy St Patrick's Day! ~ Susan

Thanks for the St. Patty's Day wishes, Wendy! I hope you're having a great one too! :)

Hope you don't mind that I sent people over to your blog to see your leprechaun post! I meant to let you know right after I posted, but my MIL was coming over to watch the kids and I wasn't ready to go yet. Oops! Anyway, SUCH a cute idea and I will be doing this next year for my kids, for sure!!

Thanks for sharing the idea!

Hi, Wendy! I really like what you did for St. Patrick's Day! Also, I meant to comment on the turkey picture's that you took the other day....how fortunate you all are to be able to look right out your window & see such fascinating critters! Speaking of fascinating critters, how is Nick feeling today? Alan was saying (last night) that as bad as Nick was feeling then, he'd REALLY be hurting by the next day (TODAY!)
