was with someone this weekend.. well actually just this morning, b/c we were gone out of town, and sick to boot, all weekend. :/
But we weathered that storm, and so last night, Mr. KG made traps with his dad to catch a leprechaun.. which had been our plan all along.. they just got delayed a bit over the weekend.
There are his three traps in the dining room, next to some gear things I got and haven't hung yet.. That trap in the middle is pretty sophisticated.. but the one on the right there.. I couldn't even figure out how to use it.. so it makes sense that the leprechaun would have to "get caught" in the one down there on the end.
Here is the leprechaun (found a Lego leprechaun man!) holding a sticky note with directions to the treasure. I wish I had remembered to set it all up before it dinged into my mind at one a.m., as I had an appointment bright and early this a.m... grr.. ;) Good thing I remembered at the last minute after they went to the trouble of making and setting the traps.
The trap that snared him..
..and the treasure hiding behind the couch.. I wasn't so creative so late at night with the treasure's hiding place was I. Oh well. Oh yah, and apparently the leprechaun that was caught at our house used to be homeless b/c he pushes his treasure around in a shopping basket.
(of course the treasure is all chocolate-hehe .. someone has to share with mommy and daddy..and a small $ for his piggie bank to save. He is learning to save $)
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Oh, yes, and the luck of the Irish was also with:
