We tried making traps to catch the leprechauns this weekend. We hoped that they would show us their gold, but instead they got mad and made all kinds of green mischief around the house. It was rather hard to get Persephone to sleep with the excitement of leprechauns coming to our home. At Christmas, she scoffed at the idea of a person going down the chimney, but little people that come to your home and make a mess? Well, that made perfect sense to her 3 year old sensibilities.
