Any Luck?

We had such a fun St. Patrick's day today even though we didn't have any luck catching the leprechaun playing tricks at our house! I cant believe how much Nate got into this year! It was so cute watching him each time he found something that turned green and going and checking the trap to see if the leprechaun was there or had eaten any gold.

It all started with Nate and I sleeping in until 10am this morning (the leprechaun must have cast a spell on us to stay asleep, because that never happens!) Once we got up we discovered the leprechaun had visited the trap we made, but used his magic powers to escape leaving behind some empty candy wrappers from the pot of gold on our trap (forgot to take a picture of this, but I videoed it when he had done it again in the afternoon). Then Nate helped me make french toast for breakfast and that silly leprechaun left behind green residue in our batter turning our french toast green! Surprisingly it still tasted so yummy! I poured Nate a glass of milk to go along with his french toast and he noticed the leprechaun left behind green residue in his cup too! He stirred it up and his milk was green! He was watching some TV while eating breakfast when Grandma called and said the Leprechaun had come to her house too and left them some gold chocolate candy! He immediately wanted to go over there, but I said he had to take a bath and get dressed before we could go. He got in the bath and turned around to play with his toys and noticed once again green residue! He splished and he splashed mixing it into the water and his bath water of course turned green! He thought this was so fun! Once he got out and got dressed he noticed the Leprechaun had visited our trap again!

When we went into Nate's room tonight to get ready for bed he noticed the Leprechaun had left him a little present on his pillow! Chocolate gold coins!! The perfect ending to a fun day! We hope yall had a great St. Patrick's Day too!!
