St. Patrick's Day came again! And lucky for us, we had Daniel and Christina (Paul's siblings) here to help us build a trap to catch the leprechauns. Like last year we documented our trap-building with step-by-step photos.
We found these wigs and hats at Wal-Mart. They're now part of the St. Paddy's day tradition.
Covering the trap with green paper, thus luring the leprechauns to our trap
Christina working on the artwork that would decorate the halls of our maze
Paul built the stairs leading up to the maze/trap
Working on the outer wall of the maze with the trap door in the middle...think "Tri Wizard Tournament"
The stairs are in place
More of the walls are going up
My new green braids
Doesn't he look handsome?
We dangled the keg right above the trap door, hoping to catch them and their leprechaun gold
The finished product: Our Pub Maze, tantalizing the leprechauns to enter and find the keg found in the middle
All that green has to entice the leprechauns this year
The leprechaun hunters
Sadly, we couldn't catch the leprechauns, but Hattie was pretty excited to see the trail of candy that they left
She would pick up pieces as she went and kept saying "cha-key" for chocolate
She was more into the candy than the trap...and she loved the stuffed animal her grandma sent her
Enjoying her Lucky Charms with green milk...she didn't even mind eating green bread
We wake up a little early for Christina
