happy st. patty's!


we had a warm st. patrick's day this year - colby was on spring break, so he and owen spent the day outdoors. but luckily when i left work at 5PM, it was still 75 degrees, so i was able to join in the outdoor fun once i got home.

not only was owen festive this day in his attire (thanks monica!), but we also were festive with our dinner: we had corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots, and i also made a cheddar onion irish soda bread.

the only thing missing was green beer!

ham face.

owen is a ham. and he has a face to go with it. he opens his mouth to flash a big, now toothy(!) grin, then scrunches his nose and squints his eyes really small. at dinner one night when i first caught him doing this, i laughed. so he did it again. and again and again. laughing uncontrollably, and tears streaming down my face, i knew at that moment that i had created a monster.

it's still funny to me. and he knows it. so we've dubbed it his ham face.

every time i get my camera out to take a picture of him doing something cute, he immediately stops, crawls towards me, and hams it up.
