Happy St Patricks Day!

Aleksia's "homework" for this week was to build a leprechaun trap. So here is what we came up with!
Her favorite part was stamping clovers on the paper with a potato! She thought a potato stamp was pretty cool! So the leprechaun climbs the straw/toothpick ladder, and as he walks towards the money, falls in! Because the top of the box is open! Here she is posing (sorry, didn't have the red eye on, and haven't fixed it in Photo Shop) with it before bed!
The leprechaun fell through!

But he escaped with the money! Luckily he was a nice leprechaun and left some decorations and some green goodies for the kids (shampoo to share, notebook, pencil, gum, and Andes mints)

And also left a fun clover "thing" for the kids to walk through as they came down the stairs from their bedrooms!

Aleksia was excited about the "nice leprechaun" that left us stuff.

Garrick and Trestin checking out their stuff. Garrick asked, "Why didn't he trash our house and turn stuff upside down like in our class room last year at school?" I told him be cause this was a nicer leprechaun, and also since we baited the trap with money, he then thought he'd give us a nice "treat" in return for taking the money!" They bought my story!

Made green clover pancakes for breakfast!

Cassiah wasn't too excited about her pancake. She shredded it, and chucked it all on the floor! So she ate 1 1/2 sausage patties instead! She is SUCH a meat eater! Our little carnivore!
