St. PaTty's DaY!




Every year the kids try and catch a leprechaun. And much to their surprise the pesky little things refuse to be caught. This year Easton had to make a leprechaun trap for school. Luckily Matt was off of school for a few days and was home to help. Easton and Matt made a pretty good trap and Easton was sure that he was going to be able to catch something this year. On St. Patricks night we left for scout Pack Meeting and Easton set his trap and placed a money trail through out the house to lure the leprechauns into his"cage of death!" When we came home a few hours later, the house was a wreck! Couches tipped over, chairs on their sides and all of Eastons money had been taken and replaced with shiny candy! Austin walks in and yells, "Mom, Dad hurry call the cops! We've been robbed!" He was sure as anything that some one had broken in and robbed us! Better luck next year boys!


Ava was just thrilled to find that someone had left candy on the floor!

What a fun thing for the kids! All I do is dye the all the food green that day, but I think we will have to start making a trap ourselves.
