Today is a kind of a big day...it is Dr. Suess Birthday and boy are we ready to celebrate. After 6 years of working in the schools, I missed celebrating this fun day and decided to carry on the tradition with my kids. It is super fun and now that we had done it so often, both kids anticipate this day with much excitement.
Even before they were old enough to truly understand, we had a party! Here we are in 2008. Look at that super tall "Cat in the Hat" strawberry cake. It almost fell over when we cut it. I think it was two white cakes stacked on each other with strawberry whipped cream in between the layers.
Now 2010. It is always a fun time with family (I love this picture of my Mom with the kids, it truly represents who she was...a great mother and a grandmother who loved to be surrounded by her "kids"). Good thing we have cousins nearby to celebrate with us. Hey do you notice a reoccurring staple of our Dr. Suess party? Of course the "Cat in the Hat" hats!
Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!
Thanks for all the enjoyment you bring to my family and me.
Your rhymes are by far the best I can see.
And your words encourage me to be who I be.
We love you...even though we (or at least Mom) need more practice with our rhymes.
