Tricky Leprechauns

We had a lot of fun last Tuesday. I had hoped to spend time before hand telling Brennan about St. Patrick's day and what it's about, but hadn't gotten around to it. So, he learned day-of.

The kids woke up to all sorts of leprechaun tricks. They found all our chairs and other items upside down. The toilet water was green, the milk was green, the ice was green... around the house they'd left little green footprints at places where they'd "accidently" dropped some of their gold coins. Little coin piles were also found at some of the locations of the tricks. Brennan also colored some pictures of leprechauns with their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I think that the picture helped his visualize what I'd been trying to explain to him.

That night for dinner we ate green food. As you can see, there's jello and brocolli... there's also biscuits and gravy which was a very exotic shade of green. Brian was a good sport about that, because it looked a bit less appetizing to the adult taste. Brennan's still talking about St. Patrick's Day and those "tricky leprechauns." They'll definitely be visiting again next year.
I think I probably post stuff about Asher's hair a lot, but honestly I can't get over it. I love it! He get's so many comments on his hair.
This is what it looks like after a bath. Notice those cute little blond curls...
... And this is his hair after he wakes up. I wish the pictures did it justice. I kept laughing all day because his curls were sticking up and out like 4 inches. He has got the all-time craziest hair I've ever seen on a 1 year old.

Also, poor kid was breaking out a new tooth this day, so he was extremely sad all day. He was also extrememly cuddly though, and he loved hugging his teddybears. They were very comforting to him. It's so sweet!

He does have adorable hair. I'm so jealous that you have a baby with curls. Too cute!

I love that you had so much fun on St. Patricks day, what great ideas! I totally blew St. patricks day this year, I wasn't feeling well and so I am not even sure we wore green! I guess Anna doesn't realize that she has been jipped so thats ok.
