St. Patrick's Day is always very exciting at our house, because every year we are visited by a very sneaky leprechaun. We never see him. But we know he comes some time in the night, because when the children wake up he has left a note with clues as to where he has stashed his gold. They then go on a hunt to find the chocolate gold coins hidden all around the house. They look forward to it for weeks in advance. It's become such a tradition that I even sent some gold "coins" to my grown sons this year. They'll pretend they think it's silly now, but you know they'll actually love it! 17 more days!!! The kids are already asking if I think our leprechaun friend will come again this year. I'm thinking the odds are pretty good!
