Happy St. Patty's Day!

So in an effort to be festive today, I tried my hand at a little baking and made an Irish Soda Bread! It was actually quite easy and turned out pretty yummy (I thought so anyways...).
And for dinner...A GREEN PIZZA. (aka, avocado and chicken and stuff)...I know it doesn't look super appetizing (unless you're a pro photographer or master chef, food pictures never turn out that great) but it tasted delish!
So that's how we celebrated St. Patrick's Day at our house this year...

And while we're on the subject of food, here's a classic spaghetti face for your enjoyment. (Notice the top two outside teeth and the absence of the top two middle...slightly out of order but oh well...we like vampires :) )
And this is how Sawyer figured he'd help me do laundry the other day. More like be the laundry.

Way to go at being festive! I don't even think any of us wore green!! Boyd loves to try to crawl in the dryer every time it's open. You're actually nice and let Sawyer in. I'm in too much of a hurry. See you soon! So excited!

How is it this kid ALWAYS knows what to do in front of a camera?? He's either the happiest or most photogenic child I've ever seen. That pizza looks incredible btw. I want to know how you did it.

Wow, Jess!! Your soda bread and the pizza look great!!
I am very impressed and want to try both.
AND I just LOVE the pictures of Sawyer Maennel!
Can't wait to see him this Thursday!! Yeah!!!!!

Jess! What a fun St. Patrick's Day! We spent our day at the doctors office...not really fun, but at least we were wearing green. Your bread looked so good. You have always been such a good cook, so I'm sure both the bread and the pizza were delicious. I have to agree with Kathryn, Sawyer is pretty much the most photogenic child. I still can't get over how beautiful his blue eyes are. What a kid. If you get a chance on this visit, call us. I would love to see you! (and Kristie, your mom, Sydnie, Jake, Sawyer, etc...pretty much the whole gang, cause well, you guys are awesome!)

Lynny's teeth are coming in out of order too. Three on top, three on bottom, and only on the left side.
We had festive food on St. Patty's day too, but I'll admit your pizza looks way yummier than my corned beef did!

Anyways, I can't wait till the ranch when I get to see you all again and play with the little stinker. I was sad that we didn't get to see much of ya'll at the wedding because of all the craziness so I can't wait to spend time with you guys!!
