I think St. Patrick's Day is one of my kid's favorite holidays. Or at least they've talked about it a lot since last year, and couldn't wait for it this year. Last year we did all sorts of stuff for it. You can read about it here. The kids loved it. I loved it. I loved planning and scheming, and their excitement about all of it. Well, I guess the leprechaun wasn't thinking about the years to come, cuz this year the kids were fully expecting him to come again.
St. Patricks Day was on Sunday this year and I had to give a talk in sacrament meeting, teach a lesson in church that day, and make treats for the fireside that night. The leprechaun must've known how busy and
freaked stressed out I was, because he was pretty chill this year. We didn't even make a trap for him, which the kids were sad about. But they're the ones that chose to watch Supercross over making a trap. They said, "How bout you just make one while we watch." Ha, nice try!
I still had to make our "St. Patrick's Day Food".
I know these kind of look like witches hats, but they were called Andes mint thumbprint cookies, a pinterest find. I thought they looked festive, and would be super yummy. They were alright. Not anything to die over.
The leprechaun still came, but he didn't turn our house upside down this year. Thank goodness! It looked like he came in just for a potty break and a bowl of our Lucky Charms cereal. The kids knew it was their duty to scrub the footprints off without me even telling them to this year. Now I'm off the hook doing St. Patrick's day things until next year, and hopefully I can say the same about speaking in sacrament meeting. (Ooh I hate speaking in front of people so bad!)
