The day of the parade we all wore green and Vote for Jeff RXXXX Stickers on our shirts. We gave out lollipops and beads along the parade route. Poor Katie didn't feel good. I didn't realize it until we got to the parade. She wasn't acting herself. She stayed in the wagon and I felt so bad. She wasn't sick the night before. She was sick through the rest of the weekend.

The next morning the trap was down and there was shamrocks and gold confetti all around the box. Katie was nervous to lift the box up so Dan helped her. We didn't catch that silly Leprechaun but he ate all the Lucky Charms. He left Katie gold chocolate coins in the cereal bowl and he left Katie new shoes. According to Katie's "St Patrick's Day Alphabet Book" Leprechaun's are shoemakers.
The Leprechaun left us a note and it said Dear M>>>> Family, You can't catch me! Thanks for the cereal. Sorry I turned your milk green when I used it on my cereal. Sorry about your toilets(he turned the water green) but I had to go potty. I left some gold chocolate coins and new shoes for Katie. You can try to catch me again next year!
What fun we had trying to catch that silly Leprechaun!

Getting the "bait" ready
Katie wouldn't lift up the box. I think she was freaked out that the Leprechaun was under the box.
But there was NO leprechaun under the box.

Lucky Charms for breakfast!
