A Leprechaun stopped by our house last night and wrapped our kitchen table in green. He left a shamrock cup and some chocolate in a gold box. I happened to get a glimpse of him as I was coming in from the garage last night and took a photo.;) Ah... the magic of Photoshop. I googled leprechaun, found a pic and slapped him in the photo. Violet was convinced and alarmed all at the same time. She had a million questions.

This morning we made green biscuits and green gravy.

All dressed up for her party at school today. The Leprechaun sneaks into school and makes messes in all the classes rooms and leaves chocolate. I think he may be stopping by the house tonight too.

Shamrock bows. Violet calls them trees.

I meant to post this a week ago.
Violet had her 4 year checkup on the 1st. She is 42 1/2" tall putting her in the 93% ans weighs 36 1/2lbs putting her in the 64%. I was hoping she weighed more so we could switch to the highback booster. I asked the Dr., MO law is 4 and 40. Based on our scale at home she fluctuated between 38 and 39. So I guess our scale is off by about 3 lbs. Good for me I weight 3lbs less!
I looked at last years numbers. She was only in the 90th percentile for height. She grew 3 inches this year. She's complained all year about how her arms and legs hurt. I now believe she's been having growing pains.
