The boys got up excitedly all this last week to see what "Lucky" the leprechaun had left them under the shamrock arch. The gifts were a wild array of small treats and plastic trinkets conveniently all purchased at the tiny St. Patricks Day display at our local party store. Apparently this is not a huge holiday in Hawaii. At all. "Lucky" got it all for less than $10 though so she is happy. What?! Leprechauns can be girls. They are rare and vicious, but they exist.
Here's a few of the days:
I had so much fun setting out the next surprise each night (Oops cats out of the bag... guess you know I'm really a tiny, vicious leprechaun now...) and we got such a kick out of watching the boys be so thrilled over a little toy or treat each morning.
I was proud of Ambrose too, because last night I told him Lucky would only be coming one more night so he set out not one, but TWO thank you notes for his leprechaun friend.
Maybe one is in behalf of his illiterate little brother? Thoughtful. Happy St. Pattys to all!
