Do you know what today is.....

It's my sister's birthday. So, if you know her call her and wish her a happy birthday. You only have a few more hours to do so. I won't say how old she is even if she is younger than I am. I will give you a hint though....she has three more years until she will be 30. Which means I don't even want to think how close I am until the big 3-0.

Do you want to who else has the same birthday? Dr. Seuss...I bet you didn't know that one. Well, my sister Shannon now knows because I told her earlier while talking to her. I never realized this or maybe while growing up I just didn't care, actually I really don't care now either besides the fact that I had to make a hat for the special occasion. You know the hat from the Dr. Seuss book A Cat in the Hat. Bryson had the option of dressing up today as a Dr. Seuss character, though honestly do any of the characters actually wear real clothes? We were told not to go out and buy anything but come on who has a cat suit just laying around? Therefore I thought of the easiest thing to make and that was the hat. I went into my, forbidden closet, as I call it and found some scrapbook paper, then grabbed a paper plate and bowl and went to work. I didn't take a picture when I was done yesterday or this morning, but as I was unloading Bryson's backpack today I saw my hard work and thought why not now.

So, here is a picture of Carter wearing the hat after being squashed into the backpack with a lunchbox, a pringles can, and a hoodie sweatshirt. Lets just say the hat use to stand straight up.
