The Night before St. Patrick's Day!

I LOVE holidays! So much fun! Really it's one of the funnest parts of being a mom!
We have a little leprechaun that comes every year on St. Patrick's Day. Her name is Lil and she always leaves a pot of gold for the girls. Every year the girls get so excited. Honestly you would think it's Christmas eve. The girls have been working for weeks on how they are going to catch Lil. They have had a plan all worked out. So last night while I was working on getting a few other things done I noticed the girls working though some ideas. This was the final product of their leprechaun trap! So cute and I think it's totally brilliant! They got all of our gold/ yellow (because leprechauns LOVE gold) pom poms and made a trail thought the living room and around the corner. Where they put one last pom pom into a plastic bin. They had the lid close by and planned on closing it when Lil followed the gold trail into the box!

(side note... we didn't get Lil this year. We ended up sleeping right though it. She was just too quiet and sneaky. She did take all of the gold pom poms. It was nice of her to add them to the pot of gold. Well, we will try again next year.)
