I’m just going to put this out there.  I L-O-V-E Holidays!  Any chance I get to decorate and I’m all over it. Saint Patrick’s Day is no exception.  I actually have a tendency to go above and beyond for Saint Patrick’s Day.  It’s just all that Irish in me!  Now that Riley can understand it’s so much fun to start new traditions.  I explained to Riley that we needed to leave the mischievous leprechaun some green milk and a Lucky Charm Cupcake so that he doesn’t take our gold coins from our pot of gold.

    So cute!! This is the first year I really got into St. Patrick's Day and now that Nick is 9 I feel like I waited a little long to do all that fun stuff. However we will be drinking green milk tomorrow and eating green pancakes! 🙂 Have a great St. Pattys Day Jenny!

    what did you use for your “green pee”? and the feet?

    • Jenny Melrose

      The green pee was just green food coloring in a glass of water that I then dumped in the potty. The feet were washable paint that I simply made into leprechaun size footprints. My 2 year old then LOVED it. I’ll be using the same tricks now that’s she’s 3 too.

    What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable knowledge about unpredicted emotions.

  • Jamie Desrochers

    We have been doing things like this for a couple of year, I have also sprinkled green confetti everywhere, wrote on the kitchen windows with dry erase makers, “catch me if you can”, my husband sprayed his hair green and pretended the leprechaun did it while he was sleeping, we have done all sorts of things. Then my girls design and build a leprechaun trap and put it out on the 16th. The next morning they look in the trap and unfortunately they have never caught him but he always leaves them chocolate gold coins. It makes the first part of March a lot of fun.
