I have carried on the tradition in my own home but this year was even more special because through AncestryDNA I found out I am 33% Irish! How fun is that?
Our own little Leprechaun visited tonight. Using my Cricut I made a Leprechaun with a pot of gold. I taped him to the window, snapped a picture, then removed him.
When Caleb came home I had them sit on the couch so I could take a “picture.” Then I told Jeffrey, “Did you see that!? There was a Leprechaun in the window!” He was looking around trying to see – so I showed him the image on my camera as if I had captured a picture before the Leprechaun disappeared.
This is what the Leprechaun left on the window ledge (drawings by Caleb).
“Hi Little Jeffrey, Hi Little Jack, I brought you a treat – just follow the map! Love Your Leprechaun.”
He was thrilled with his little chocolate bar.
Clue #3 was the keyboard.
And here is the Pot of Gold with their little treats and a note:
“Yay, You found it, I hope you enjoy. Thank you for being such nice little boys!”
Jeff said, “Oh wow.”
I spent so much time getting things ready I was a bit delayed on dinner but thankfully it all turned out!
