How do the 500 Babies celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Well, for starters we made a leprechaun trap complete with instructions for the naughty little guy to disobey (Do NOT climb the ladder!) and money for him to grab and then presumably fall through the tissue-paper top right into the trap.
Presumably. In the morning we discovered that not only did the leprechaun escape (he pulled the ladder inside the trap and built stairs out of green legos) but we found evidence of much mischief, including a puddle of green glue.
The creepiest thing our visitor did was trim his beard in the bathroom. Mikea was especially disturbed by the bits of beard left behind. She told me she wanted the pieces of hair "OUT OF THIS HOUSE!"
That evening we dined on a fruit rainbow...
...Pot of Gold soup, all-green salad, and "blackened" sausage. (Oops.)
