Irish (snakes) caterpillars

Our fuzzy wuzzy glittery green egg-carton caterpillars

Lorelei thinks she's a leprechaun. Not a bad likeness.

Such artists!

To ring in St. Patrick's Day, the kids and I listened to some Irish fiddle music this morning while we finished our sparkly green caterpillars over breakfast. We had to give them legs, of course, because otherwise they would have looked like snakes, and we all know that St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland!
We would have loved to have seen the famous parade through Kansas City, but found ourselves stuck at home (the new car was in the shop getting new tires). So, we made the best of it and spent some time in the backyard in the 80 degree weather.
