I just LOVE St. Patty's day! It is one of my favorites and just baffles me that we don't get the day off work but.... it's not up to me I guess. I just remember in elementary school making traps and being so excited to catch a leprechaun and get my wishes! The St. Patty's excitement hasn't left me and I'm so looking forward to making this day as fun for my kids as my parents did for me and my brothers!
My dad would spend hours helping me make the perfect trap, I always had the coolest ones! Traps are pretty serious business in this house....
I gotta say... usually Brian is not very excited to start trap making (to say the least) but this year he got pretty into it! The St. Patty's magic is pretty contagious!
Here they are! After slaving away they are finally finished! I forgot the gold this year haha so we are attracting our little leprechauns with Lucky Charms! They work just as good incase you didn't know....
Ours kinda worked the same this year. Both have a string hidden under the lucky charms that when pulled make the hat fall down or the trap door close! Pretty awesome eh? I was sure we were gonna catch one this year!
But alas... those little leprechauns are tricky little buggars! We did get some awesome green treats this year though. Here is Boston modeling with the traps in the morning!
Thought this was pretty funny... as I was taking pictures he rolled over onto the traps haha. I barely caught it on camera because I was going to grab him!
Boston got some pretty sweet "1st St. Patricks Day" jammies! I just love dressing him up! I can't wait until he actually knows what's going on :)
Bandit even got into it!
But after having Lucky Charms for breakfast (I forgot the syrup for the green pancakes lol) we got all ready for church in our best green outfits!
It's been a great day!
But besides St. Patrick's day nothing too exciting has been going on!
Boston is "talking" a lot more and likes to play on his mat now! He grabs and pulls the toys so rough though that he ends up pulling the whole thing down on himself haha but he doesn't seem to mind.
We try and go somewhere everyday even if it's just walking around wal-mart for fun haha. He loves shopping! People still think he's only a couple weeks old when they first meet him... so he's still pretty small but he will be 4 months on the 30th! Holy Smokes!
Check out that belly! He has finally moved up to 0-3 month clothes, he grows like a weed! We are starting to get more smiles out of him but still not a ton. He just sits in his swing and talks to himself...
Brian has been pretty stressed with work and school... he has a lot on his plate right now but he graduates in April and his mom and I are so excited to go see him walk the stage! We are forcing him to of course, he would rather die but I want pics of him in his cap and gown so bad haha. It will be fun! He played intramural basketball at BYU again this year and it was their best year so far I think! He really misses playing and it's so fun to go and watch! Boston loves it too! But it's over now :(
And I have been busy this week re-doing our living room. I painted one wall blue cuz I wanted a cute colorful wall in the house but I was having a hard time finding decorations to match and I had a few people comment that they thought it was ugly haha so.... I started over. I was struggling taking pictures of the place with my little camera so this is the best I could do...
We went with grey and yellow cuz I found this pretty fabric at Hobby Lobby and made new pillowcases! I re-painted the wall grey and got matching curtains.
And then I went spray paint crazy and repainted a lot of little decorations I had yellow. The pictures really don't do it justice, I promise it's really cute this time! And if you don't like it well... don't tell me cuz Brian won't let me do it over a 3rd time haha.
But that's it for us! I feel like this was a really long post. But Easter is coming up and my mom and brothers will be here for it! Then Boston and I are gonna go home with them for just over a week! So mark it on your calendars because he wants to meet EVERYONE!!! yay!
