St. Patrick's Day 2011
John and the girls made a Leprechaun trap. They know he loves green so they added some green grass and kiwi served in a green bowl.
While they were preparing the trap, the Leprechaun sent me shopping. I got a green movie, 2 packs of M&Ms, green Andes, and mint 3 Musketeers.
The Leprechaun came and skattered Shamrocks all over the carpet.
He made a mess with the Easter grass. He loved the kiwi. After he ate that, he filled the bowl with Andes candies and 3 Musketeer bars. He neatly arranged everything under the trap.
Here's a close up.
He rode Mariella's plasma car and left a Shamrock sticker as proof.
This is what the trap looks like now. The girls will think they've captured the Leprechaun.
Mariella seeing the mess the Leprechaun made. Notice, she's chomping on some chocolate already.
GraciAnn's funny face!
This is the beginnings of our green jello surprise.

The next layer of the jello surprise.
The finished Jello Surprise minus pecans. I left those out. The girls LOVED it and so did my husband!
John's St. Patty's Day dinner!
*I didn't take a picture of this, but, when the Leprechaun was here, he went potty. Because he's such a little guy, he couldn't reach to flush. It's amazing, but I guess all the green things he eats causes his urine to be green. Our potty was full of green! (Thanks to the food coloring!)
I hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day too!
