Grant had leprechauns on the brain tonight. Kris--God bless him--said he would help Grant set two traps to try to catch one. I would never have the patience for creating and setting a trap, but the two of them had a grand time fetching bins from the basement and propping them up with "bait." Grant had already decided to use his Fargo Marathon medal as bait because it is shiny gold; he also asked if he could borrow a gold ring from me as bait for the second trap.
Although I'm not into building the traps, I decided to run out to Hornbacher's after bedtime to find something the leprechaun could leave behind for the kids. I found two plastic necklaces and a Lucky Bamboo plant (I know, not exactly a shamrock, but it's the best I could do). I thoroughly enjoyed setting out the gifts and writing the note the leprechaun left behind!
