St. Patrick's Day.
This was O's first year to show some understanding of leprechauns and green-wearing and rainbows and gold!
Mostly she liked the rainbows, so I ran with that.
We bought some fruity cereal just for the occasion.
First we sorted it into colors.
Eating some along the way, of course.
Next we took sheets of white craft foam and some glue and stuck our cereal on in a rainbow shape.
Here is hers.
And, here is mine.
I like her's best.
We left our rainbows on the mantle so that the leprechauns would have a place to leave their gold. I thought we were being pretty clever.
They were on to us, though, and didn't leave the whole pot of gold. Just 3 gold-covered peanut butter cups. I can handle that.
The leprechauns were going to cause a little bit more mischief, but, unfortunately, our house got sick that day. So, after turning our milk and pancakes green, they took off. I can't blame them.
Next year, we'll make our
trap rainbow more enticing.
