Happy Green Day

Happy Green Day! {Saige has a hard time remembering "St Patrick's Day" So she shortened it to Happy Green Day!}

Last night we told her that leprechauns might come during the night and surprise her. She would not fall asleep, she made sure her room was spotless, and since her walls are already green that her room would be ready for the leprechauns when they come. { secretly i was so excited for her, I love her excitement with all things!}


I guess you can blame my Mother for this, but Holiday's were fun and a big deal at our house, and its is something I will always remember as a child so OF course we are passing fun holiday things with our kids.

Last night our house was visited by Leprechauns that made footprints all over our house, across pictures, the fridge, the mirrors and glass doors. Saige could not believe he made it all over and no one heard or saw him! Along the way he must have had a hole in his bag cause he dropped gold coins EVERYWHERE!

He must have helped himself to our food, as our milk some how turned Green!

He then sent us on a wild chase to try and catch him in our house with a fun message on the mirror...

Our Stops:



After a long and tiring search, with several stops to eat the chocolate in the gold coins ~mostly for Milo~ we made it to the end

No Leprechaun but we found our GOLDEN TREASURE!!!

Hope everyone has a great St.Patrick's Day, we have a fun filled day of making sugar cookies, and maybe spending some time with our Mimi, and hopefully take advantage of the nice weather out there! And hopefully getting Milo away from all the chocolate......

Leprechaun tricks??? Leprechaun tricks involve work.

My idea of celebrating St. Patty's is using enough food coloring throughout the day to turn our intestines green. Oh, and beer.
