Busy little leprechaun

I hope everyone had a nice St. Patty’s day.  We had a fun day and enjoyed seeing all of the things that the leprechaun did as he visited our house.

IMG_2627   Last night, Mikayla and I made cookies to have today.  As you can see, “make” is a loosely held term.  We did take the pre-made cookie and roll the edges in green sugar to dress them up a little bit.IMG_2628 First of all, our pancakes were turned green!IMG_2630 IMG_2632Then he turned our milk green, too! IMG_2635 We also had some green grapes for breakfast to keep the theme going.IMG_2636Mikayla had a snack of celery with green cream cheese.  She didn’t really like it, though.  I hadn’t thought about the fact that she had never had cream cheese before.IMG_2637The last thing the leprechaun did at our house was to tip-toe on Mikayla’s sandwich, take a bite out of it, and leave a gold chocolate coin behind.  Mikayla thought this one was pretty funny.IMG_2638

For dessert, Mikayla made some green pudding in a Zip-loc bag.  She had a lot of fun shaking it all over the place.IMG_2640


Here is a picture of Mikayla in her St. Patrick’s Day shirt.  I was happy to get a sweet smile (instead of usual cheesy one) even if she wouldn’t look at the camera directly.IMG_2644

Gavin would not stand still for a picture, but you get the idea.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
