Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Ah, St. Patrick's Day, the day when we're all a little Irish, right? Are you wearing green? If not, consider yourself pinched. Here's what we made to celebrate the day: Leprechaun Catchers!

Peanut's Leprechaun Catcher!
Goosie's Leprechaun Catcher!
There's the ladder there to have the leprechaun to climb to the top (and the sign telling him not to as a taunt!) and then some golden nuggets on top. When he steps on top, there's a trap door to catch him! He'll fall to the bottom of the hat and we'll have ourselves our very own leprechaun to take us to our pot of gold! Wahooie! (Haven't caught one yet, but we're waiting...) And look how well Goosie wrote her sign! I was impressed, and loved her shamrock. ~note: leprechaun catcher idea courtesy of FamilyFun.com

Corned beef and cabbage for dinner too along with some Irish Soda Bread. Hope it turns out well. 

Today is also our kitty's birthday. She is 15 years old today. :) Here she is playing in the stash.
