St. Paddy's

Greta had to make a leprechaun trap for St. Paddy's day and I thought it turned out so cute. The top of it has slits cut in it and toy money covers them so the leprechaun will be tricked by the pretty shiny money, climb the ladder and fall in the top of the hat. Unfortunately he got away by using his tiny knife and cutting through the bottom, but he left a treat.

And here is the trap all the kids made, but he got out of this one too. Darn it!

My kids really wanted to know what leprechauns look like so they googled it without me knowing. Come to find out they saw all sorts of "naughty" leprechauns and scary leprechauns. We had to have a lesson for FHE on rules for the computer after that incident. Greta and Alina no longer think leprechauns are nice, I bet they don't even try to capture one next year.

New Fashion

Livy really wanted to go outside even though it was freezing. So she took it upon herself to get ready. Who would've thought gloves would work for socks.
