For his actual birthday, we made cupcakes and let him have one all to himself, just like we did with Kylee. He was more interested in playing with it than eating it!
He eventually did eat a bit though.
For his birthday, we did a Dr. Seuss theme. So fun!
Per my mom's suggestion, the invites were little books.
This was the cover...
For the party, we did a Cat in the Hat cake. We had originally planned to just do the hat, but this was our first time using dowels to help hold up the cake, which resulted in improvising. After we had placed the fondant on the cake...it started to settle a bit, resulting in this:
So we improvised at 12am and I did my best to make a Dr. Seuss-esque fish.
Oh, the Places You'll Go! cookies...
Hop on Popcorn...
Pink Yink Ink Drink (Even though I messed up the recipe and so it was actually red...)
And what would a Dr. Seuss party be without green eggs and ham?!
A friend at church who teaches at their school had a bunch of Dr. Seuss cutouts that she uses in her classroom and she let me borrow them. Awesome! Thanks, Ashley!
Gunnar did even better with his cake the second time around...
And he had no problem digging in!
The third game was called "Would You Eat it in a House?" The idea was to puree food and dye it green and have the kids (and adults!) taste it and guess what it was. I have leftover baby food in the pantry so we just used that.
We let the kids and adults play, and it was fun watching everyone's faces! A few of the foods we picked were green beans, peaches, and even ground chicken...yum!
The party went great! Thank you, everyone, for helping make his day special!!
