Happy St. Patty’s day

For me, this is one of the greatest holiday’s of the year.  My brother and I would always make the most amazing trap to catch a leprechaun, and each and every year we caught one.  So of course the tradition must be passed along.  This is how it works.  You dig a hole big enough for a leprechaun to fall in, then you cover the trap with twigs and grass to camouflage it.  Next you wait, that’s always the hardest part.  And if you’re lucky enough to catch one, he’ll usually have to leave his bag of gold in order to get out of the trap.  Trust me, it works like a charm!

I love it, you are so creative. What a fun thing that your kids will remember and pass onto their own kids someday.

You're so skinny. You can't tell that your pregnant. Your face is so thin and you can't see your stomach in any of the pictures. I wish my face stayed thin, but I wasn't so lucky this time. Everyone says I'm bigger. Honestly like 6 or 7 people. Which by the way is not something anyone should ever be allowed to say to a pregnant lady!
