The Leprechaun Craziness
Well, after a long ski trip yesterday, the kids weren't too tired to remember the leprechaun! He has been visiting us for at least 5 years. My mom caught a small doll like figure when she was a kid and the doll has been passed to my kids. Every year he appears in March. We decorate and make his bed. This year he would hide daily and the kids would enjoy finding him and taking pictures. One day he was left at my parent's home and he even went on an adventure there. My mom took pictures in every spot he hid! The kids later wrote a story about his adventure at Oma's. Last night as we were trying to get to sleep, the kids set a very elaborate trap! They even left potatoes to catch him. They were successful and caught the little doll. So at 6:30 this morning we were up, following the clues to fill his pot of gold. Now the leprechaun had so much fun at our home, he forgot to go to our best friends house down the street! My friend told her kids he must have been on a different time zone! Whoops, should really try to keep the kids from bragging how much the leprechaun loves them!!
