we had a visit from the leprechaun….with strict orders not to mess up the house (I really don’t get the whole messy trick thing) and not to go upstairs near the kiddos’ rooms. Yes, we will be paying for therapy for our kids…for fears of little people….elfs at Christmas time and now little leprechauns!

a path of stones leading to a tomb with Jesus inside, guards watching over, candles representing the light to come, water to symbolize hope, and a cactus to represent the crown of thorns.
