A Seusstastic Day

I've let two holidays and two birthdays go by without blogging.  If I weren't my own boss, I'd surely be fired.  

So, first up is the first holiday....that's not so much of a holiday, but we celebrated it pretty big this year.  And, if it weren't late, and this weren't completely overdue, I just might rhyme it for you. {See what I did there?!}  Because, it was Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America!

We kicked off the celebration by waiting until the last minute to make shirts for the girls, but man, oh man, did they look adorable in what we made!  I saw something similar on Etsy and put our own little twist on it, and convinced our friend Angie to dust off her sewing machine so she could stitch around fabric on the shirts.  I just love love LOVE them!

I packed a Dr. Seuss themed lunch for Olivia {because Mama loves a theme} and even got to do it for Sydney the next day when she had lunch bunch at her preschool.  Nana volunteers on Mondays so she got to stick around for lunch to see Olivia it all the fun stuff.



We made little goody bags for her classmates like we did last year, but apparently I didn't take any pictures of them.  We stuffed them with a Dr. Seuss pencil, eraser, bookmark, and a little notebook that had a Dr. Seuss book cover on them.  They looked so cute and I know Olivia loved handing them out to her friends.  

I picked the girls up after school with some Dr. Seuss snacks and brought them home for a little play date at our house.  These girls are so lucky to have made such good friends this year!

Sydney got to wear her shirt two days in a row {and it survived a trip through the washing machine} so that she could wear it to school on Tuesday.  Her teacher LOVED it and her lunch!



➹ She had such a good day, we celebrated with donuts! ➹

Olivia's class celebrated Dr. Seuss all week long and on Friday they got a visit from Thing 1 and Thing 2.  They were asked to wear red and made crazy hair to wear.  How great is this picture?!
