Leprechaun Trap

March 17, 2010
It might sound a little stuck-up to say that I'm not into St. Patrick's Day, but the truth is....I'm really not into St. Patrick's Day. I think it stems from my early days where at school there would be groups of kids staring you down to spot your speck of green and threatening to pinch you due to your lack of necessary color-foresight. I'm not Irish, I don't particularly like corned beef, and I absolutely don't like people criticizing my outfit of choice and making me feel like I'm out of the loop if I'm not wearing a head-to-toe green jumpsuit.

Okay, I'm done being a downer.

I do, however, love that my family is so darn creative and fun. My Aunt Peg and cousins Ryan and Kyra were out this morning checking their Leprechaun Trap to see if they had caught one this year, while Frank looked on with the camera. This is a much planned and anticipated annual event, and it's so fun to hear the stories and see the pictures of their early morning adventures. Ryan and Kyra take this very seriously, and it's nice reminder that even holidays that I don't really prefer can have a whimsical and fun twist when the right people are involved.


  1. hello!
    would you believe me if i told you that i grew up in lancaster, ca???
    i sure did. i'm trying to remember how far roseville was in comparison.

  2. Hi Kellie!
    Okay, now it's getting weird...my husband grew up right outside Lancaster! Roseville is a bit North - we're near Sacramento - but a nice little town none-the-less.

    I love your blog! Lots of pictures and stories that inspire. Thanks!
