St. Patrick's Day Followup...

I hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day! I promised a followup to see if the leprechaun trap actually worked. Well, unfortunately it did not :( But we did get a visit and some interesting surprises! Now we can't be sure what exactly happened the night before but here is our theory from the evidence....

We decided to leave out a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal (one of their favorites) to entice the leprechaun to come to our house in hopes of catching him. From the looks of it, he came in through our back door, onto the counter top and ate some.... but only the marshmallows!

Then we figured he went down the counter and saw the pot of gold we left out on the trap...
The trap went off, but not fast enough because it looks like he got away! Though he did leave behind a $1 gold coin and a little note.
Then we follow the footprints down the hall
After researching leprechauns online to prepare for this day, I did learn that they are shoe makers, and really have quite a fetish for shoes. I also learned that if you leave a pair of shoes out, they might fill them with treats, or just steal them.... Luckily ours were filled with chocolate coins, candy, and shirts! What a nice little leprechaun!

After filling our shoes, I guess he needed to take a potty break and forgot to flush... kinda nasty!
... and play with the toilet paper a bit too
Then it looks like he headed back down the hall and out the back door.
Well that is our hypothesis from what we could see...
the kids really got a kick out the little visit, but decided to build a better trap next year to ensure victory!!!


  1. That is so cute! How did you make those footprints? You are such a fun mom- you should have 18 kids!
