Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

One of my favorite author's of all time, It is thanks to him that I learned to read, I always thought he was a great author for kids...  easy peasy reading and fun too!  Some of my favorite quotes are from him...  I'm not nearly as GREAT as a fan as my little sister...  BUT I do appreciate his work and everything that comes with it...  ;)  She's all about celebrating his b-day, it's kind of a big deal in our house!!  ;)
Some of my favorite quotes!  :D
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who Matter don't mind.”

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.”

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

"A person's a person, no matter how small"
Dr. Seuss' Birthday is today, Gaby thought it would be fun to "celebrate,"  soooo we made treats, took pictures and left everything ready for our seuss-elation tomorrow after work!  ;)  
Here is our adventure in pictures!  ;)  looks like Dr. Seuss was coming alive in the kitchen!  ;) Cat in the hat cupcakes, and truffula trees in the making, along with Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes! :)
These mini cupcakes were on their way to becoming truffula trees!  ;)  yummmm...  GREEN frosting!
...and our final product!  They were sooooo cute!  keep reading 'till the end...  I'll give you a suggestion for these little guys!  ;)
Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes...  turned out sooooo cute!!  again keep reading to the end...  there's a lesson to be learned from these!  ;)

...and we also made Cat in the Hat cupcakes... I LOVED the way these turned out, and they were super easy to make... which made these THAT much better! ;)
Lots and Lots of Cat in The Hat Hat's!!!  :)
....and we decided to have a final photoshoot, that is the main reason we did all of this!!  haha!!  that and the fact that all of these treats looked super cute for our celebration!  ;)
These were super fun to make...  My sister and I had a really fun time making all of these...  I would definitely do them again, with a few minor changes...  ;)
I NEVER read the comments from others, when I find something I like I must make it...  and I usually do, which is what happened to these guys... My sister on the other hand ALWAYS does!!  haha! HAD I READ THE COMMENTARY that was available online I would of noticed that the cotton candy was probably NOT the best idea for out treats!  It melts in about 4 hours..  so as I'm writing this, the thing 1 thing 2 cupcakes have become a melted mess of cotton candy sugar on top of the frosting....  :(  ahhhhh...  and the truffula trees have withered down to small balls on top of sticks!!  haha!!  thankfully we made these for fun, and my little people friends will love them anyway!!  ;) 
NEXT time I would still use the cotton candy on the thing 1 thing 2 cupcakes WITHOUT the frosting...  I would just set the cotton candy on top, and go with it!  as for the truffula trees...  they still look cute...  I just wouldn't make them the night before...  ANYTHING that contains cotton candy must wait until the day of the party!  LESSON LEARNED!!!  ;)
*At least everything lasted long enough for me to get pictures, BECAUSE we all know that's really all I was concerned with!*  ;D
Oh and the cotton candy that was touching the frosting had a "life-span" of about 3-4 hrs.... 
Happy treat making!!  :)

I have missed your posts! Those cupcakes all look wonderful and are very cute! My daughter came home from preschool with a very cute Dr. Seuss hat today.
