St Patty’s Day 2010!

As per our tradition, we had the leprechauns visit the kids and leave them with a treasure hunt!

Buster Finds Footprints!
The kids woke up to find leprechaun footprints all over the kitchen!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
On the counter was the prizes! Clue #1 and tickets to the magic show. Our green gel ant farm was a nice touch!

A bit groggy, but ready for a leprechaun treasure hunt!

Footprints in the Bathroom!
Footprints in the bathroom! I wonder where they go!

Footprints to the Toilet
Uh-oh. This doesn’t look good.

The Leprechauns Peed!
The leprechauns peed! I guess they don’t flush in Ireland. Gross!

Cricket finds Clue #2
Cricket found Clue #2! This one was found behind the toilet. It led to the dryer.

The Pot of Gold!
The pot of gold was in the shower all along! Under the rainbow!

Buster loved showing off his special St. Patrick’s Day outfit that mommy bought him.

My Own Little Leprechauns
Cricket looks really enthusiastic about those waffles.

Leprechaun Art
Buster made the leprechaun in school yesterday. They were happier than they look here. Honest.

Then later that afternoon, we went down to the Huntington Beach Library to enjoy a special St. Patrick’s Day Magic Show!

At the Magic Show!

    They came out of the garbage disposal and peed in your toilet… yuck!! They left you some awesome stuff though although I might wash it first! :) Glad you had a fun St Patty’s day… I was boring this year and did nothing! Good thing they celebrate it at school, right? :)

    Whoa, that looks so fun… and weird! Their dubious entrance the green pee makes me think part lucky charms, part leprechaun 3. Despite the frowns they made for the photos, it looks really fun. Wow. Pary all the time at your place!
