Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!

id you know that March 2nd is Dr Seuss' Birthday? I had forgotten until yesterday, when I started reading lots of posts about how to celebrate. I decided (with a little help from How Does She? and Moo Moo's Tutu's) to make a fun lunch for Ben today! I had so much fun! Exactly what I needed in this time of sickness around our house (Warren has the flu and Carson has 2 ear infections).

Here's what I came up with...

"Green eggs"- I found some egg clipart on the computer and printed some out. I placed a piece of wax over the pictures (I taped mine down so it wouldn't move). Then I took white candy melts and melted them in a ziploc bag and traced out the egg. While it was still melted I placed a green M&M in the middle. Super easy (just remember to close your ziploc after you melt the candy melts; kindof messy if you don't- spoken from experience).

I also printed out some tags from Moo Moo's Tutu's.

And Ben got some goldfish (yes, it's alot of fish, but I was planning on him eating them with lunch and snack).

My first attempt at the Cat's Hat

And the second one- #1 won that competition

See- it fit better!

And the finished product! (if you click on the picture you can see what everything is)

It is also my dad's and Tyler's sister's birthday! 
Happy Birthday, Poppie and Aunt Polly!
