We had lots of good funny that was funny!
Christian's mini bash was on Sunday and it was all things Dr. Suess. Who knew doing a Dr. Suess would be so much fun...that is funny. Ha ha! Okay, I'll stop.
Here are some pictures of some of the things we did...
Do you like Green Eggs and Ham?
Do you like them, Sam I am?
These are kind of like deviled eggs only they're filled with garlic mashed potatoes and pieces of ham. It's all dyed with green food coloring, courtesy of Daddy.
Instead of gift bags, I did candy jars filled with cherry sours, gummy bears, and gummy worms.
Those trees! Those trees! Those truffula trees! All my life I'd been searching for trees such as these!
(These are cherry chip cupcake cones with cherry frosting. They're even better than regular cupcakes, seriously.)
Thing 1 and Thing 2 and Cat in the Hat Cupcakes
(Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes are topped with blue cotton candy, which actually makes the cupcakes taste awesome. The Cat in the Hat cupcakes are topped with white lifesavers and red gummy savers kept in line with a toothpick.)
And, of course, the guest of honor had to have his Cat in the Hat birthday cake!
The top of the hat was chocolate with peanut butter frosting. And Christian had a little bit of cake, too. I was wiping red frosting of his cheeks by the end of the night.
(Thanks, Jen D., for Christian's Superman shirt! I was waiting for him to wear it for his birthday.)
I absolutely loved decorating for this party. First, because I love decorating for and planning parties. Second, because last year, for his 1st birthday celebration, I didn't really do much planning or preparation because I was kind of still in a daze and we had just gotten back from Hacienda. I was so grateful to everyone else at the time but I missed doing fun things that make parties special. So this year I wanted to have some fun with it.
And just so you know, I proudly stole some of these ideas from Kara's Party Ideas. Yeah, I'm not that creative.
It was a fun little party, although Christian wasn't in his best mood, unfortunately. That's alright, though. I think I can remember from last year's party that he vomited multiple times that day. I think, if I can remember correctly, we went through about five outfits by the end of the night. There was no vomit at this party so I call it a win.
And how appropriate that I'd talk about vomit in the same post where I'm gleefully showing off pictures of deliciousness. Thought you'd all appreciate that. ;-)
The birthday is over, the party is done, so on to his 3rd year. His 3rd year! I can't wait to see what this 3rd year will bring.
Happy birthday, baby! I'm so glad you're here!
