Seamus McDermott



Well, a leprechaun has moved into our house. His name is Seamus McDermott (and that is pronounced Shay-mus for all you non-Irish speakers). We left him a pot of gold last night and he left us some goodies in exchange and left his calling card saying he was happy to have found a good home.
I threw this together at the last minute, because I couldn't see St. Patrick's Day come and go without doing something, and I really didn't feel like dying all our food green this year. The girls loved it though. June has been looking for the leprechaun all day. It is so sweet. She asks me questions like,
"Is he wearing green?"
"Do leprechauns walk or fly?"
"Where would he hide his gold?"
and then I catch her looking behind her mirror and under her bed. I told her that leprechauns don't like to be found because they are scared someone would take their gold, and she said, "I wouldn't take his gold." Sweet girl. I love that she doesn't even contemplate that her parents could be doing this, instead of a leprechaun. Life must be magical when you are a kid.

Here are some pictures of us getting ready for bed and filling our pot of gold. By the way, it is Tyler's idea to always stick things to our foreheads (don't ask me why?).

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

This is very cute. Between this and Keri's leprechan catching, I'm feeling lousy for letting St. Patrick's Day go by as "ONE OF THOSE" holidays. And we have a lot of Irish blood too...sad. There is always next year.

I so wish I were like you when it comes to holidays. I am such a party pooper- holidays always come and go without any mention of them at our house. It's really sad when you think about it... hopefully one day I will be motivated enough to do something to change it!

This is darling!! I have to agree that you and Keri are amazing!! I would love to do those types of holiday excitements, but being by myself...is just not the same to make up stories about leprechaun's and then tell them to myself--hmm, not the same!

He he Seamus McDermott is the best name I've ever heard. I wish I had fun stuff like this in my family.
