Mini Cat in the Hat Cupcakes and a Winner!

IMG_1799

March 2nd we celebrate the birthday of the marvelously creative Dr. Seuss. Theodor Geisel aka Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904. Kids from 1 to 101 continue to be filled with delight while reading the likes of Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish, Two Fish, Horton Hears a Who, The Grinch, The Lorax... Over the years my kids and I have snuggled up on the sofa together, diving head first into the wacky and whimsical world of Dr. Seuss.

I found this fun Cat in the Hat cupcake idea while visiting Gordon Gossip. Our cupcakes turned out a bit droopy compared to the ones over there. We plan on attempting them again tomorrow. ;)

Which Dr. Seuss book is your favorite?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I also wanted to congratulate Holly at the Peppered Pantry. Holly you are lucky number 21 and the proud owner of a fun new beach bag from Simply Bags. Email me with your color preference, what you'd like embroidered on your bag and your shipping info and I'll get it over to Simply Bags. ;)


So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads. -Dr. Seuss

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you. -Dr.Seuss

Be sure to hop over and take a peek at Seussville, it's a fun and silly website to hang out and explore.

Cute!!

Not sure which Dr. Seuss is my favorite but my friend has an almost two-year-old and she wants me to read this tongue twister book over and over. And phew! Some of them really are hard.
Shin pinning blinns and whatnot. She also likes the one about O the wonderful sounds that Mr. Brown can do...
I can just about recite that one from memory. ;)
