One of the activities we did for St. Patrick's Day was build a simple Leprechaun trap.
We thought up the idea together, rigged a box with a chopstick, some yarn and some loot ( fake gold doubloons ) as bait.
Even though we had discussed it, you still were NOT quite convinced that we wouldn't actually catch one. You hid under a chair, waiting for a few minutes but then I guess the monotony of waiting got a little too much.
We strung the string out to the living area so that you could still yank it when the time came.
Later in the evening, we got ready to go out and as we were leaving you suddenly said , "But Mommy, what if the leprechaun gets my stuff while we are gone???!!"
I hope you retain your sense of wonder for as long as you possibly can, if not throughout your life.
Ta Da! I present to you the (semi) dried apple er, puppet heads!
I think I'm way more intrigued and fascinated by these than you are, honestly. You're just kinda like, "meh". You LOVED the carving with a plastic knife part, but not so much the wrinkling part. You DID say, however, that they smelled like raisins. LOL!
Technically speaking, she is the grand daughter of the man next door, but still. She is a couple of weeks younger than you and she has 2 wiggly teeth! I can't believe how in this photo, you look so much bigger than she does. ( Although, she does look like quite the young lady with her cute bob and earrings!)
You have missed playing with Maddie (5) and her brother Carson (8) over the winter months because they hadn't been over to their Grandad's that much, and it has been cold so they haven't been out and about.
Now that the weather is warmer, the kids are out in full force.
Over Spring Break, they came and spent a few days with their Grandad next door. You got to play with them, jump on trampolines and play hide and seek :)
I'm sure we will have plenty of opportunities to play with them as the weather warms up, but every time we tell you it is time to go, you look so crestfallen, like you'll never see them again :)
If you ask me, I think they can't wait to play with you again either!
We were over at Walter's and Amy's yesterday evening to babysit baby Wyatt for a few hours. You love playing with him and were a very helpful little boy indeed. Wyatt laughed at your antics and you guys sure had fun and made the time just fly past.
Daddy : Wow, look at all those cars parked in that parking lot!
Mommy : It's "Planet Fitness"
Daddy : What are ALL those people doing at Planet Fitness?
Jaxon : Maybe they're getting fitted.
Daddy & Mommy : 😜
