A couple weeks ago, the school did a celebration for Dr Seuss Day. But we decided to celebrate on our own at home. And we had such a great evening!
The kids made costumes (Eliza helped Silas make his awesome costume - and she was "Thing 1"):
We ate green eggs and ham (with some peas thrown in there for good measure):
We read excerpts of our favorite Dr Seuss stories at dinner - Gertrude McFuzz, the Sneeches, Horton Hears a Who, the Zacks, What Was I Afraid Of (the pale green pants with nobody inside), The Cat in the Hat, and of course, Green Eggs and Ham. We haven't read some of these stories in ages since the kids have grown out of the storybook stage - but it was fun to see that they could still all recite favorite parts of favorite stories from memory.
Then we all watched the movie "Horton Hears a Who."
We love Dr Seuss.
