Happy St. Patrick's Day from O'Gallamore West!

We LOVE St. Patrick's Day around here, so we always pack in a ton of fun!

The boys and I made these fun little Rice Krispy Shamrock Pops to send to school {with cute free printable tags from the always adorable Jessica at Modern Moment Designs- I met her in real life last summer and she is soooo sweet and fun!}


That sneaky little leprechaun always comes to our house during the night and he does all kinds of crazy stuff!  {Click here for last year's fun stuff.}  He always puts our shoes on top of the fridge, but we don't mind because he fills them with gold coins {the chocolate kind, of course!}

This year he also turned our milk green, sprinkled glitter in our beds and on our heads, turned pictures on the walls upside down, turned our bar stools upside down and put oranges on all of the stools, and left our toilets with green pee and gold glitter.  He also covered every bare surface of our home with confetti and sparkles... fun stuff!

Sam was determined to catch the leprechaun this year and made the cutest little trap all by himself.  He decorated the table with some of his St. Patrick's Day projects from school
 {I didn't get a picture with the top on the trap... it was covered with gold coins, shiny pennies, and a little black pot to entice the leprechaun to climb up, then FALL in!}
 
 He even wrote this little note {since leprechauns are so naughty, he knew that leaving this note would encourage the leprechaun to climb the ladder}.

Which, of course, the leprechaun did climb...
see those little foot prints?

And we were sooo close to catching him... 
here's a little poem that Lucky O'Leprechaun left :)

We also celebrated with a St. Patrick's Day Top O' the Mornin' Breakfast {thank you to My Sister's Suitcase for the adorable idea and free printables from their guest post on eighteen25.blogspot.com}









I decorated the table with some adorable free printables from Love the Day... the boys loved the silly mustaches!


{whoops... sorry that my finger's in this blurry picture.  It was a crazy morning here!}

Now the Corned Beef and Cabbage is in the crock pot, the Pistachio Cake is cooling on the counter, and this Mama Leprechaun is off for a quick little leprechaun nap!
