The Lawrence family in Utah loves celebrating holidays.

Alan Lawrence, who's been married to his wife Nikki for 20 years, turned his attention to St. Patrick's Day, dressing his 6-month-old son Rockwell as a real-life miniature leprechaun in adorable photos that have now gone viral on his website, The Dad Blog.

"Our family, we get kind of excited about holidays," the father of six told ABC News. "I've always been a sucker for the magic behind different things related to them, whether it's the leprechaun or the Easter bunny. It's just kind of fun."

"I came from a big family and my wife did as well so...we just want to celebrate the fun you can have with big families," Lawrence continued. "It's not fun always for sure -- it takes a lot of patience -- but we enjoy it."

It's not the first time Rockwell's photos have gone viral. Lawrence dressed him up when he was 4 months old as a real-life "Elf on the Shelf" doll in honor of Christmas.

Rockwell, dressed in a little green suit, green and black top hat, orange beard and green and white tights, was photographed with his 2-year-old brother Wil in a variety of poses: getting mischievous near a sewing machine; spray painting the family dog; pouring green paint into the laundry machine; painting the house green and even finding a pot of gold.

Lawrence said his son "loves the attention" during the photo shoots, but he did have one problem -- that orange beard.

"He drools a lot because he's started to teeth, but I think that was the most frustrating thing for him because [the beard would] get in his mouth. At one point he'd get frustrated with that so we had to constantly push it down," Lawrence explained.

Lawrence will be posting new photos of Rockwell as a leprechaun until March 17.
