Happy St. Patrick's Day Fun...

.

What a fun day around our house...
This is not actually a day that I have typically made a huge deal of, but this year I decided we'd do a little painting and drawing and creative writing....
WHAT FUN!!!
I absolutely love the imaginations of our children...
But what I found, I hadn't quite expected;  the imagination of a certain little one led to persistence like you've probably never seen in your lifetime....
Our littlest one was quite convinced that a trip to the closest grocery store to purchase LUCKY CHARMS was essential on this day...
Because if SHE had LUCKY CHARMS it would make finding that little Leprechaun just a touch easier...he'd probably even come out from underneath the 4-leaf clover he'd been hiding under all day. 

So...
off to the store we went...
Made our way to the cereal isle where she very quickly located the Special Box...
Lucky Charms in hand all the way through the store,
in the car on the way home and
into the kitchen to be quickly opened and spread about...
The plans she was making were something...
I had to act fast!
I convinced her to leave the room for just a few minutes and while she was gone, I quickly grabbed out bowls for all the kids and dumped a bit of green food coloring in the bottom and quite sneakily covered it with Lucky Charms,
I called them all in and announced Lucky Charms would be dinner tonight
(after the initial shock, they were all thrilled!)...
I added the milk and
...voila...
one little person was completely and totally delighted!!!
"The Leprechaun had finally visited us this day..."
NOTE TO SELF ~ next year, do this little duty first thing in the morning ~ doing this might allow for some other sort of activity during the day... or to repeat the fun we had... do exactly as you did today...either way, it should all turn out great!
