I'm not sure how it has evolved into something that we celebrate, but it sure has! My kids LOVE St. Patrick's Day! While the boys were at school, a leprechaun trashed their bedroom. Crepe paper was everywhere, and green candies were thrown all around the bedroom floor.
After school, the kids set up a leprechaun trap. They found an old shoe box, carefully set some change inside, with the hopes of luring the leprechaun close enough to trap him. Rumor has it that if you catch a leprechaun, you get all of his gold. Our leprechaun was a little mean with his tricks this year. He dumped a white powder around the front porch, took their money, and drizzled a gooey blue liquid all over their trap. It made for a very fun afternoon.
We finished our day off with Mint Chocolate Brownies. They were Heavenly!

Today was a very special day for our family. Jack was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
The program was so nice. Grandma Becky talked about baptism, two darling little girls from our ward sang a beautiful song, Grandma Debbie talked about the Holy Ghost and Grandma Roxy said the closing prayer. Chad was able to preform his first baptism and confirmation, something that was very special to him. After the baptism, we had everyone over for a little luncheon- thanks to Ken and Becky! We are so grateful for all of the family who went out of their way to support Jack. It means a lot to our family. It truly was a wonderful day.
