Operation: Leprechaun

The St Patrick's Day holiday means one thing in our house (well, this year it also meant that I made corned beef and cabbage - turned out good, thanks for asking):  trapping a leprechaun.  

Last year we made our first leprechaun trap, but weren't successful in getting one.  Julianna was determined this year.  We (and I use that term loosely) had a two part plan:
Plan A:  If I heard a little Leprechaun scream in the middle of the night, I was to get up, wake her up, we'd both come downstairs and make the Leprechaun give us our wish.
Plan B:  Same as A, except Julianna would hear the scream, wake up and come down on her own (which would never happen in a million years).
We stuck with Plan C:  Get up in the morning at our regular time.
This is the trap.  Last year it was just the bottom green box.  This year she decided to add another floor to make it more appealing.
Front walkway with Lucky Charms, a cookie and a pot of gold (hiding behind the cookie.)  The plan was for the Leprechaun to take the goodies and when he moved the pot of gold, the door would slam shut, trapping him in.

This year she made a new pillow from Duck Tape.

Also, a Duck Tape dress - in case we got a girl leprechaun this year. So cute!  Lol

Well, I'm sad to report that we did not catch a leprechaun this year.  They are sneaky little fellows.  (He did leave little green footprints into our bathroom where he had used our toliet...I spared you pictures of the green water in the bowl. You're welcome.)
We're already making plans for next year's trap!
