Happy St. Patricks Day - Traditions

We've always had a fun time celebrating St. Patricks Day at our house.  It all began when the kids were tiny (those who know us, can you believe how tiny they were in this picture ?!)...
You never know who will visit.  Sometimes it's Lucky the Leprechaun, and sometimes it's Lucy the Leprechaun.  Either way, they're always mischievous.  There might be footprints left behind leading to a note explaining how to go about searching for that treasure...
Or sparkly confetti leading to that pot of gold...
Sometimes they hide the treasures about the yard...
Or make sure to equip you...
For a pinch-free day...
Breakfast might be as easy as Lucky Charms...
Or a little fancier...
But one thing is for sure!  The milk is ALWAYS turned green...
And golden chocolates will NEVER be forgotten...
It's always fun, the leprechauns are always tricky, and we never know what they'll bring...
This year we had a great time making shamrock waffles with our heart-shaped waffle maker.  Just add green food coloring to the batter...
Separate the waffles and shape them into your shamrock, add whip cream, and some green sprinkles...
HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!  How do you celebrate?

You are such a fun mom! We did have green breakfast (and milk) this morning, but I felt terrible when my kids went searching for candy and didn't find anything. The leprechaun might have to be a bit later today...
