This month we enjoyed a visit from Steve's sister's family! They were only in Sacramento for a very short visit, but it just happened to coincide with Luke's birthday... who just happened to share a birthday with his Grandma Shirley. We knew it was still hard for Christie to celebrate such a tough day since their mom passed, and felt it would be nice to throw him a party to take the pressure off her! It ended up being such a special day. I even got to take some quick birthday portraits for him!
Debbie and I worked together to plan a complete "Cat in the Hat" themed birthday party. I made the cake, which featured the Cat's hat on top.
I also made some Cat in the Hat marshmallow pops that turned out so cute and were SO easy to make!
We had the party at Debbie's house and she some great "green eggs" for appetizers. She also did a fabulous job decorating for the party!
I'm pretty sure the birthday boy was extremely happy with the whole event, and particularly enjoyed the "Pin the Bowtie on the Cat" game that his Uncle Steve made. But most of all it was obvious that he enjoyed hanging out with his family, which was the best gift of all!
