Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

It started with an invitation to read.

And Matthew and I accepted the challenge. The lady on the left is the other second grade teacher. Matthew loves her. I'm not surprised, she was my second grade teacher and I loved her too. (In fact I still do.) She sponsors the event. The other lady is our principal. I'm VERY sad to say both are retiring this year.

He may have lost sleep, but he loved every minute of it. Getting ready for it and some cupcakes got my creative juices flowing, so since the next day was Matthew's snack day AND Dr. Seuss's birthday, I decided I HAD to make a Seuss themed snack, especially since that was this weeks theme at preschool too.

Voila! Cat in the Hat hats! I did not use a tutorial, nor have I seen these on the net (probably because I've never looked), but I'm sure someone has come up with them before me. Or something similar. But this was a fly by the seat of my pants snack that I made up at the absolute last minute, in the grocery store. The frosting would have piped better if I'd had my real piping set and not a sandwich bag I'd cut the tip of a corner off of, but hey, they were good enough.

And yummy. At least that's what he says his friends told him to tell me.

OMG! Not only do you invent Dr Suess treats, you also invent an emergency piper.
It looks like a grand event. I'm glad you and Matthew were a part of it.
