Happy Birthday.....

to my oldest sister:)  and to Dr. Seuss!!!!  What a cool birthday huh!  My sister used to teach kindergarten and dress up as the Cat in the Hat each year and celebrated!  Wishing I had a picture of that now for my girls who were asking this morning!  (hint, hint)

If you know me well, you know I like to mix it up and do fun Holiday Lunches!  Halloween has always been my best, but Pinterest has fueled the fire and now EVERY holiday is a reason to celebrate!  And my search for non-sweet items is on!  I hate how it is always candy and cupcakes....so I searched long and hard and came up with some of my own too.

It takes a little extra time, but my girls get so EXCITED and they LOVE it!  And some day they won't and that will be OK, but for now I"m gonna keep doing it.  Sometimes I forget how much they sacrifice when Aubrey is sick and they have had a pretty ruff week too....so even though they had hot lunch today (and I could have slept in) I jumped into action for a Birthday Celebration!  (and since I still have three sleeping, I'll blog it really quick and maybe you can whip up a fun snack for your kids today still)

Breakfast:
Green Eggs and Ham Sandwiches along with Strawberry and Banana Cat Hats
"Do you like Green Eggs and Ham?"
"Would you eat them in our house?"
"I DO like Green Eggs and Ham!"
"I WOULD eat them in our house!"
(They were very sceptical at first:)

Snacks:
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (sorry, no blue fish, just gold and Swedish-but you could get the colored kind of goldfish and that would be cool)
Hats for the Cat (cherry tomatoes and cut string cheese)
Thing 1 and Thing 2 (strawberries, string cheese, and blue dyed cream cheese hair, mini choc chip eyes)
Thing 1 and Thing 2 probably won't travel well to school....but we'll see.

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to SARAH and Dr. SEUSS!

*Edited to add in those who were sleeping before*

 "Ella....do YOU like green eggs and ham?"
"NO!"
"Do you want just the eggs?"
"YES!"
"They look funny?"
"It's just fun with food coloring.  Just try them?"
 "MOM, I DOOOO like them!"
 "Emelia, do you like green eggs?"
 "NOPE!"  (it all came right back out:)
And Miss Aubrey?
Still sitting on the couch with her thumb!
