52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 15

Ethan is a July baby.
When we lived in Dar,
we had a lot of mates that stayed in Dar
over the summer,
which made planning his birthday
fairly simple.

But it's mighty cold here
and most people,
including us,
are leaving this summer.
So what to do for Ethan?

I planned to throw Ethan a birthday party
closer to the end of the school year.
Ethan wanted a Dr Seuss party
and even organised some
Cat in the Hat hats.

Ethan sporting his Cat in the Hat hat.

But then I got busy with reports
and more summer kids started having parties,
pretty soon
we realised we were running out of dates.

I tried to convince Ethan to have his party
in August,
but he wouldn't go for that.
When we realised
there were weekends left
Ethan agreed to a classroom party.

We made good use of the hats.

We also brought chocolate cupcakes
and let the children decorate their own.

Happiness is being able to give your child
the Dr Seuss party he wanted.

What a great idea to have a class party!! It looks like it was a great success. I enjoyed all the pictures. I'm glad Ethan didn't have to wait until August to have his party. Tell him that I am so glad that he had such a nice party and add my Happy Birthday to him too.

I loved all those neat hats.
