Irish For Much More Then Just A Day...

Well, St. Patrick's Day came and went without a post here... but that certainly doesn't mean Team Taylor didn't enjoy our visit from the leprechauns!

As usual those little green guys were full of tricks. They left each of the little ones a green pail filled with gold coins of candy, Lucky Charms, and some other green treats. (I was quite upset when I realized that there were alcoholic beverages on the green beads that I let Kirsten WEAR TO SCHOOL. Those leprechauns have to shop a little more carefully next year!)

They also turned our toilet water green, which filled our tiny house with squeals of joy before dawn. Kirsten found Apple Jacks and green milk in her lunchbox as well. It's amazing how much excitement and fun these little traditions bring... I always forget just how much fun these moments are until we are in the midst of them.

I thought Kirsten looked so cute leaving for school!

Danny's shirt says says it all. If these little freckle faced, blue eyed, red heads aren't little leprechauns I would be shocked. They are always full of excitment and mischief. Love my crazy guys.

Matt ran around all day squealing "I saw one!!" and pointing at the floor. Then he would shrug and say, "You miss it. They veeeeeeerrrrrry tiny." I remember Kirsten doing this the year she was 3 so clearly. I just can't believe how quickly time is passing!

This is a typical photo shoot these days... no one looking at the camera and little ones climbing on furniture and laughing. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
