Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

I have always loved Dr. Seuss! Starting sometime while I was in college I would buy Dr. Seuss books any time I found them on sale, for the children I hoped to someday have. I had considered a Dr. Seuss themed party for William's first birthday but we decided on a barnyard theme. In June of 2011 I was shopping at Target and found the dollar aisle filled with Dr. Seuss things. I love to get an early start at planning and I knew it was possible that this might be the last year I get to choose the theme for his party so Dr. Seuss it was!!! Six months before his William's 2nd birthday I left Target with a basket full of Dr. Seuss decorations and party favors and began planning the party! The party was a huge success...we all had so much fun...but I had tons of left over Dr. Seuss stuff. What do you do when it's time for a play date on March 2 and you have lots of Dr. Seuss stuff??? You have a birthday party for Dr. Seuss!!!

They painted while we watched "The Cat in the Hat"

The finished product...One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

He loves stickers!!!

I attempted to take a pic of them together in their Dr. Seuss shirts...this is the best I got. They were so much easier to photograph when they were babies!

The cupcakes


I'm not sure how much of the cake they ate but at least they enjoyed the icing!
