A Seussical Party Experience

Adam & Katie had a birthday party this past weekend. I thought it would be fun to have a Dr. Seuss-inspired party. If I had left the decision up to the kids they would have preferred a SpongeBob party, but I'M THE BOSS around here when it comes to parties and I made an executive decision to do Dr. Seuss. It was fun...we had a reading of "The Lorax" and the kids decorated flower pots and then planted a flower seed. We had cotton candy to represent the tufts of the Truffula trees. I made the most hideous birthday cake ever...

Not quite the vision I had in my head, but it was good practice at not being perfect. I must admit, there was a fleeting moment when I said to myself, "just 'accidentally' drop it on the floor and you'll have an excuse to start over." I resisted the temptation and presented less-than-perfect cake for all to see.

The kids had a great time! So did daddy and grandpa...making the cotton candy.

That cake is not so bad! The party sounds like a lot of fun.
