i heart ... st. patrick's day

today was a good st. patrick's day, or should i say,

stacy's children - brennan, sierra, kaitlyn and ammon - threw a super fun party and invited me, along with 60 gazillion teenage girls and a few boys.

(no, kaitlyn does not have a deformed mouth - that is a cookie!)

did they invite me because they think i'm such a fun aunt


is it because they knew i'd bring goodies?

i don't really know


i did bring goodies that turned out really good!

i was surprised they were good, because really the only reason i chose this certain dessert is because it's green.

yay for surprises!

and stacy made this yummy spinach dip and served it in a cabbage.
