Happy St Patrick's Day!!!

Did the Leprechauns come to your house? They came to mine and the Boys were SO excited to see what they left. We got very lucky, and had nice Leprechauns, who did not wreak havoc on my home.  Only my camera, which faithfully TOOK pictures of our festivities, but would not stay alive long enough to upload them to the computer. Blah, the day was coming, but I didn't want it to be today!

Last night, Mr Cyn helped the boys decorate a cardboard box and made it a Leprechaun trap, which was filled with paper. I used my trusty Silhouette to cut some small vinyl foot prints and then it was BEDTIME!

When the boys woke up, they found little foot prints by each of their beds, on the doors, walls, and leading right into the trap! They opened the trap, but instead of finding a new little friend, they found all the Gold Nuggets he left behind when he magicked himself out of our trap.

(I am trying really hard to get my image of footprints to load up so I can share, but can't figure it out. If you  have any tips for me to try, leave me a comment!)

A few days ago I happened across Rainbow Waffles, I don't remember who pointed me towards them, but I knew they would be perfect for breakfast!

Don't they look amazing? I found these and lots of other ideas from Kelli at Random Thoughts of a SuperMom and loved it! They were easy, tasted great, and the boys LOVED them.

For lunch we are sprinkling Leprechaun dust (lime jello mix) on wet apples so we can watch the white powder turn green, and we will be making Kelli's Leprechaun Jello for dessert after our traditional Irish dinner, that is NOT corned beef and cabbage because...blech!

What are your plans today? I wish I had some more pictures for you!! Maybe I can convince Mr Cyn I need a new one...
