Dr Seuss's Birthday At Home

Last night we were supposed to take the kids to a Dr. Seuss Birthday event at Barnes&Nobel. Unfortunately my work and something that we have come to refer to as the spaghetti sauce incident forced us to cancel.

Alex was disappointed but he got over it in a pretty cool way. While Christine and I were running around dealing with work and sauce Alex decided to create a Russell home Dr. Seuss party. He got to work decorating and transforming the living room into a stage.


P3030047 Christine got into the festive mood and switched  Taco Tuesday for Green Eggs and Ham.

To say this was badly received would be a massive understatement. 

The kids unanimously insisted they did not like green eggs and ham.

Christine made an elegant argument to try to convince the kids.

You do not like them. 
So you say.
Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may I say...

The kids were not impressed...

They do not like green eggs and ham. End of story.

After Dinner we checked out Alex's awesome book display...


and then sat down and read some books.


All in all, Alex took an otherwise disaster of a night and turned it into a fun time. I think he gets that from his mother.

The rest of the pics from the night are in our Green Eggs and Ham Flickr set.
