Saint Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays, guess it's the Irish in me coming out, or that I love the color green, or the fun tricks the leprechauns play... This year Liam and I had a lot of fun making leprechaun traps, going on a rainbow shamrock scavenger hunt looking for the leprechaun's special surprises, enjoying rainbow, green shamrock, and Irish food. Even Kinley and the hubby enjoyed this fun holiday.
Liam and I read "The Night Before St. Patrick's Day"
and created our very own Leprechaun traps the night before.
One out of a box with scrapbook paper, stickers, and glitter
the other he created out of his legos,
with gold coins leading up to the trap of course.
When Liam woke up the leprechauns
left shamrocks on his door...
Turned the chairs on their sides...
He took the gold coins from the traps
and left the first shamrock of a rainbow scavenger hunt.
The first was a red Shamrock that said "MOM"
and some chocolate Gold Coins.
Looks like the leprechauns played a trick on mom
and left chocolate coins in her pocket.
And the second orange shamrock
was taped to her leg, said "PEE"
Liam headed to the bathroom to discover GREEN pee,
more chocolates, and the third yellow shamrock "CAT".
He then went into the laundry room where the kitty's food is
to find the green shamrock "CUP" and more coins.
He looked in the kitchen for his cups
and found the blue "TV" shamrock.
The last purple shamrock was on the T.V. sound bar
that said "PILLOW".
Liam found a basket of special treasures the leprechaun left
behind the couches in the pile of pillows.
Kinley and Daddy got special surprises too!
I made Liam a Rainbow Breakfast
A Green Shamrock Lunch
A Festive Green Snack
And an Irish Dinner & Dessert
Here's some of the fun pictures we took, all dressed in GREEN
No one got pinched this year!

I found this cute idea using a pepper as a stamp to make shamrocks...so easy! They weren't the best shaped shamrocks, but it was fun to do!
Card stock or cards
Gold glitter (optional)
Cut pepper in half, clean out the membrane and seeds
Dip the cut side into the paint
Stamp the card stock, lift up slowly
Sprinkle gold glitter on the wet paint
Let them dry, they write "Happy St. Patrick's Day" on them
I had Liam sign his name on the inside
Then we put them in the envelopes and mailed them off
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Happy St. Patty's Day!
A Wish for a Friend
Wising you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours-
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends

Yes, I have to admit I am a Twilight fan, so with the recent release of the last movie "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2" on DVD I just had to have it to complete my collection. The hubby is so sweet he even preordered it on Amazon, so while I waited for my special package "with the smile on the box" to arrive I had a mini Twilight Saga marathon for myself. I only got to see BD 2 in the theatre once with my Bestie, so I was excited to see it a second time. I love watching these, I always pick up something I didn't see before, plus all the added bonus features like the option to watch with the commentary on, which I totally suggest.
Kristi and I at the movie Theatre to see BD 2
So if you like the movies, like I do, are you a TwiHard or TwiLighter?? And just so you know, there IS a difference between a TwiHARD and a TwiLIGHTER. According to the Urban Dictionary a TwiHARD is "a combination of words 'Twilight' and 'Die-Hard', Twihards (usually young females) are obsessive fans ot the "Twilight Saga" series of books by author Stephanie Meyer, and the film adaptations. Twihards embrace all things Twilight with religious zeal, daily visiting fansites, quoting dialog from the series, and stalking (online or in person) the films' stars, especially Vancouver BC movie set. Most Twihards are "Team Edward", although the self-declared sub-category "Team Jacob" also qualifies for the Twihard designation. Comment or remark to a Twihard, and she can relate it to Twilight instantly." And according to the Urban Dictionary a TwiLIGHTER is "a human being who is a fan of Stephanie Meyer's 'Twilight Series', consisting of 'Twilight', 'New Moon', 'Eclipse', and 'Breaking Dawn.' Twilighters are usually quite addicted to the series, and would be considered 'obsessed' by some." On the basis of these two definitions, I would classify myself as a Twilighter and totally Team Edward.
However, my other Bestie, Lisa, who lives up in Washington did go through Forks and took some pictures for me....
Do you know who's truck this is?
Who's house is she standing outside of?
Where was this picture taken?
Who would drive this car?
So which movie is your favorite? My favorite Breaking Dawn part 1 and the soundtrack is AWESOME! If you don't have it already I suggest you add it to your collection!
Here's some of my favorite songs!
Breaking Dawn part 1
Breaking Dawn part 2
And if you are looking for some inspiration for a Twilight themed party check out the one I did for my friend Kristi's birthday last year! It was so much fun and everything turned out amazing!
These are just for some fun! Found them on Pinterest.
