Sunday, January 10, 2010

Our twin boys turn two on October 26th and we just celebrated their 2nd Birthday "Seussical" style this past weekend...

Cameron as Thing One
(he's the only one that would actually keep his hair on)

Some things enjoying cake

Thing 2 with a 'Truffula Tree' stuffed in his mouth!

Thing 1 with an icing 'stash

"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!"

Green eggs and ham of course!

One fish, two fish dish
I poured red jello into cups to set, then had blue jello in pans to set, then cut the blue jello into cubes, then layered everything on top of the red jello

I pierced hotdog cubes with uncooked spaghetti noodles then boiled them all together.

Truffula Trees
I put my batter into cupcake pans, inverted cones over top of the batter then baked as usual.

Stars on Sticks
I baked these little wooden dowels right into the sugar cookies

The green eggs certainly didn't last long!

Good Morning to a birthday boy from Horton and Morton!
All murals were hand drawn and painted by Moi :P
