The Cat's Out of the Hat

We had an awesome time at Hannah and Kate's 2nd birthday party. I've (George, too) been running around like a mad woman trying to get everything done this week and it all came together. The theme for the party was Thing 1 & Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat. I had it set in my heart to make them little pillowcase dresses, called this because I literally bought a pillowcase from Target and made them from it. Anyway, my Mom and I made the first one together and then I did the second one on my own. They turned out so cute! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!

They actually really got into opening presents


Isn't the little weiner dog so cute?

Jeremiah in his purple cowboy hat! If the girls won't wear it, at least he will! Love it!

Ray-Ray (their favorite cousin)

Have no clue what Kate is pouting about here

We finally have enough hair for ponytails! Yay!

Hannah loves the baby doll accessories she got & we got A LOT

Erin & I spent Friday night making the cupcakes and icing them. The cotton candy on top of them started to dissolve, but we added some more just before we ate them.

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You...

Hannah dug in
