St. Patty's Visitor

GREEN EGGS

HAPPY GOLD FINDERS

SAD BOY THAT WANTS THE CHOCOLATE FOR HIS BREAKFAST


GREEN MILK....FREAKS YA OUT AFTER A FEW DAYS


SHAMROCK HEAD


I DO LIKE THEM SAM I AM!


THE TREASURE


Thanks to my sweet friend Megan McEwan and her fun ideas, Madelin and Owen got a visit from a Leprechan! sp? He left a trail of green shamrocks leading to a pot of gold (salsa dish with chocolate coins). He kissed their cheeks and foreheads while thy slept and it left shamrock stickers on their faces. He turned our milk green and threw shamrock confetti all over the place. While he was havin' his party without us, he got too rowdy and knocked over furniture and the toy box. Madelin loved it!! At first she was a bit freaked out by him coming in her room to kiss her. I told her the night before that he might do that and she said, "Mom, just put a sticky note on my door that says 'Leprechan, don't come in Madelin's room!' " She's funny. But she was allright with it in the morning when his kisses had left shamrock stickers. She did say to me that he didn't see my sticky note in the dark 'cuz he still came in. Owen had no idea what was going on, but he was excited about it anyway and got really sad when I wouldn't let him eat the whole bowl of coins for breakfast. He wanted to keep the sticker on his forehead all day. He'd freak out if you even tried to take it. It made for good entertainment for Madelin, the master teaser. Anyway, such a fun tradition, very little cost, not much effort, and the kids love it! For breakfast we made green eggs to eat with our green milk. Good times!
