The actor documented how his 6-year-olds celebrated the holiday -- and reacted to leprechauns "trashing" their house!
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, and their 6-year-old twins Harper and Gideon just proved they are even more #FamilyGoals than we thought. The actor took to Instagram late last week to document their St. Patrick's Day celebration, and you just have to see how flippin' adorable it all turned out.
The NPH-Burtka household has traditionally set "traps" for leprechauns, who will then leave gifts in exchange for their freedom, reports People. This year, however, the twins decided to leave peace offerings for the the mythical, mischevious fairies. Harris documented his kiddos' hard work—which included gathering potatoes, beer, mushrooms, whiskey, beer, and an iPad with a video greeting—on Thursday night.
Here's the ridiculously cute video greeting the kids left for the leprechauns, in which they ask for a boy leprechaun and a girl leprechaun to come and leave them gold coins.
This is the video Harper and Gideon made for the Leprechauns, a hopeful plea for guardianship and gold coins. There are four parts, so make sure to swipe left to see them all. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
So, how'd it all turn out? NPH shared that the little "rapscallions" actually took off with all of the kids' peace offerings and totally trashed their home. There was toilet paper strewn everywhere, couch cousins toppled, dining room table chairs stacked all over the staircase banister (creative!), the iPad was taped to the chandelier (ah!), and the leprechauns spelled out "Never" in potatoes on the floor, Harris reported on Instagram.
What the flip?!? The Leprechauns trashed our house. Gideon and Harper were far from pleased by all this Irish mischief. Toilet paper everywhere. Cushions upended. Dining room chairs in a pile. iPad taped to the chandelier. Whiskey drank. The rapscallions wrote their response to the kids' video in potatoes. See for yourself! #begosh #begorrah
