We didn't catch a Leprechaun this year. But, he left us some goodies! And he created some mischief like last year. Green footprints, green milk, chairs tipped over, and gold coins. He even left a little scavenger hunt to a pot of gold!
The best part really was the reaction of pure surprise/joy of a 4 year old. I was still in bed when he came downstairs to see if he caught a Leprechaun in his trap. I guess he realized he needed to pee first and after I heard the lid go up, I heard a gasp and giggle. Right on his forehead were little green footprints. I told him that the Leprechaun must have come to make sure he was sleeping before he hid his gold in the house. :)
And of coarse we all wore green. Our house is a no-pinching zone!

When Grandma comes, there is so much fun to be had! Here is just a glimpse of it...
To sum up, Emery (and sometimes Lucy) did all sorts of things like: going to the mall, the library, the zoo, monkey joe's, flying kites, riding bikes, making cookies, sewing, playing outside, coloring, and watching movies in pj's. Some tears were shed as we dropped her off at the airport and we can't wait for her next visit!!
