St. Patrick's Day ideas

Kenny was a little hesitant about the idea of little green men running around his house the night of St. Patrick's Days so he came up with a spell to protect himself if necessary: "Be gone, leprechaun!". Luckily we only had nice leprechauns running around our house and he never had to put his spell to use.
The leprechauns left behind lots of yummy treats, even if they did play a few tricks on us first!
Those tricky leprechauns turned everything liquid in our house GREEN, left behind lots of little green footprints and even painted the kids nails green while they were snoozing away!
Kenny felt pretty cool wearing his leprechaun shirt around.
The leprechauns left lots of little pots of gold behind this year for the kids to find as they followed their footprints around the house.

Everything is just so much fun to celebrate when you have little kids around getting excited about it! 

Later that night we took the kids to see the new Dr. Seuss movie, The Lorax. We thought it was a cute little show and Kenny loved it. They definitely got the message this time around. When we walked out of the theater, Kenny turned to me and said, "I want to be the Lorax, I speak for the trees. Now, how do I go plant a tree?". At least it's a good message to teach them to love our trees!
