Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of the leprechauns of the blog from the Turley Clan. It is a beautiful St. Patty’s Day in McLean, Virginia and the leprechauns came to bring treats and tricks to the Turley house this morning.
Madie made an elaborate leprechaun house with entertainment and even beer. The leprechaun loved it and left three-leaf clovers for a treasure hunt. The treasure proved to be a basket of holiday cookies and cupcakes. They left our traditional dollar coins hanging from a tree in green felt pouches for each of the kids in the backyard.
Tonight we will be feasting on corned beef and cabbage and toasting my late Irish father, Jack Turley.
Best wishes to the Turley clan in Ireland, particularly in the counties Armaugh and Down. We are thinking of visiting Ireland this summer so we may soon be able to visit the little Leprechaun darlings on their home turf!
And to everyone . . . Erin go Bragh!!!
