Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh

Foiled Again!

We had a smart leprechaun this year. He got out of the trap Niamh constructed pretty easily, probably when he realized that the gold was fake.

We think that's when he was lured by the temptations Finn had left for him. The gold rocks were scattered about the table, the Bushmill's was emptied, and there was a hole burrowed out the side of Finn's Leprechaun Trap. Finn thinks he used the empty bottle of Bushmill's to break the wall of the box, and from there he escaped.

After he drank his Bushmills, he peed in our toilet which turned the water green, he colored all our milk and cream green, and he switched all our healthy whole grain cereals to Lucky Charms. That Jerk.

Then, after Lucky Charms for breakfast, I thought Go on, ruin yourself, Bernie (name that movie), and we had green cupcakes from Trophy for lunch.

 The kids needed some cheering up after their Leprechaun Traps failed once again. Cupcakes for kids are like daisies for adults. Don't daisies cheer up everyone? (And the stupid Leprechaun drank all the Bushmills so that option was taken off the table.)

I'm trying really hard to figure out what movie you are referencing.... except the only movie I can think of with a "bernie" is Weekend at Bernies......
The catching of the leprechaun is my favorite tradition of yours... It's so damned cute and I love that your kids really believe it...
