Nothing Says Birthday Like Dr. Seuss

29 February 2012
With Dr. Seuss's birthday coming up on Friday, I wanted to share a few pictures with you.  Two years ago my middle daughter had a Dr. Seuss party for her 4th birthday.  It was a blast!!!  Dr. Seuss is a favourite around here - all 3 of my girls learned their letters from Dr. Seuss's ABC's, Hop On Pop was one of the first books they could recite by heart, and The Cat in the Hat was always a winner (still is).  I LOVED the books when I was a child, LOVED the memories I have reading them to my own children, and I know I'll LOVE to share them with my grandchildren one day.
This was the cake I made - looked great the night before, but was drooping in a VERY Cat in the Hat way by the party.

Made Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes - cotton candy on top of a cupcake ... what's not to like?

Party favours - complete with a Seuss-like poem.

The sweet table (you can see the cake leaning dangerously now)

We played Seuss games (the kids LOVED this one).

Nobody loves a party more than my little Katie!  This was one to remember!

On another note ... it was quite an up and down day!  Testing workshop in the morning, drove home through a blizzard after school (but we're going skiing tomorrow, so all this snow will be nice), and was greeted by a flood of emails from TeacherspayTeachers when I got home.  Thank-you so much to anyone who purchased something today.  The sale continues through midnight tonight if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet (I cleaned out my wishlist after school today - got some FANTASTIC resources!).  All my resources are on sale for 20% off, and use the promo code on the right for an additional 10% off at the checkout.

Happy Wednesday!
