Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Last night Sam got a bee in his bonnet. He was bound and determined to catch a leprechaun. I really wasn't feeling it. But he wouldn't be dissuaded. So for our FHE activity we made a trap. As you can see we used the lid of a box that just happened to have Christmas wrap on it. We propped it up with a hanger that had a string attached to it.
On the other end of the string there was a quarter attached by tape. We all know leprechauns can't resist money that's just laying around. So we were hoping that he would pick up the quarter, which would make the string pull on the hanger, which would fall causing the lid to come down on the little guy, trapping him until morning when we could come and have a look at him. We weren't going to keep him, just have a look at him. Well, this morning Sam found the lid down. So he got on the floor with his eyes really close to the box lid and he slowly lifted the lid. He found a note and a little Lego set.

We are a little creeped out to know that a little creature/person was wandering around our house last night while we slept.
Sam doesn't feel too bad about losing his quarter considering the leprechaun left him a new toy.

Sam, too bad you weren't staying the night at our house. We got the little guy. I tried to lock him in my closet (the one you slept in last Saturday) but the dog kept barking at him and it was driving us crazy so we just had to let him go. Good thing he didn't find my jar of money. Sorry buddy. Grandma.
