Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What's not to like about Ireland, rainbows and green? My husband says this is now his favorite holiday after Christmas...why? Leprechauns have begun surprising us on St. Patrick's Day morning. The wee rascally men break into our house at night and leave a trail of destruction and yummy treats.






This year they entered through the front window, tipped the couch on its side, dumped out the basket of shoes, knocked over Kate's high chair and left again through the back door! They sure left a mess but who can resist Belgian chocolate coins, Haribo Gold Gummi Bears and Andes Mints??











And just to make the morning complete, we had g
reen pancakes and spinach eggs for breakfast!

I have decided that you are too creative for me (which is saying a lot). I no longer feel worthy to comment on your blog.

Can you give your leprechauns our address?

I love the pictures of Ben and the kids! What a cute family! I think your leprechauns need to make a visit to our house too!

What is up with you people that are so ambitious!!! That sounds like a lot of fun. Maybe I'll remember that for next year.

I'd like to see a few more pics of you. Give the camera to Ben sometime!

You are such a fun Mom. This may be one tradition I'll copy in the future! Glad you made it out of the pool in time to capture these pic's.

How fun! The leprechauns used to come destroy my classroom every year-maybe they should start coming to our house too! Way cute matching outfits!

We went to IHOP for their green eggs and ham, and Whoville pancakes. SUGAR!!! But how can you resist?
