March...St. Patrick's Day. If you are a seasoned reader of this blog, you'll know what that means in our Iverson house - lots of corny, green decorations, an unexplained obsession with trap building, homemade root beer, and candy.
We threw our 4th annual trap building extravaganza. We ate some amazing Reuben sandwiches, colcannon, corned beef brisket, and soda bread. Delicious as always.
But what would we put in the root beer to put him to sleep? Smarties of course! They would send him into a sugar-induced coma that would knock him out for the night. Hattie thought it was great. She even practiced dissolving smarties in water a few times before actually building the trap.
And Hattie and I worked on the inside of the room.
Paul build a huge green hat to put the hotel room on. And voila - a high-rise hotel room.
The Burroughs family made a trap with a fancy umbrella and lounge chair...but not before the leprechaun crossed hole in the ground covered by palm leaves!
And Aubrey decided to make her trap so warm and cosy that the leprechaun would never want to leave!
