Hi all,
I just want to make sure I'm playing this right:
My opponent has a Glow Finch in play from a previous turn.
On her next turn, she summons a Nighshade Swallow.
Immediately I play the reaction spell Ice Trap on the swallow.
She wanted to use the Glow Finch ability Decoy on the Ice Trap, but Decoy states that it can only be used on on a spell if "this unit (the glow finch) could have been chosen as the target".
So we figured since Ice Trap can only be used on a unit that is "being put into play", it could not target the Glow Finch at that time, and so Decoy couldn't be used.

Did we play this correctly?

yup, 100% correctly.
The glow finch has to meet eventual restrictions of the spell to use decoy (in this case having 2 or less life and being put into play) so you can't decoy an Ice Trap
