Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

It would be Dr. Seuss' birthday today, if he were still living. We like our Dr. Seuss around this house...A litte One Fish, Two Fish anyone? How about The Fox in Socks? I love a good tongue twister at bedtime!

This past January, my daughter picked a Dr. Seuss character to adorn her birthday cake. Actually, this is the second of her 7 birthdays that she's picked this obscure but fun Seussical creature...the Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz. She's on the last page of the Dr. Seuss ABC book. It took me a while, but I ended up pretty impressed with my icing rendition. Here she is in all her buttercream glory!

As for the 7 year old? She said "Mom" (and then a very dramatic pause that I took for complete disappointment) "It's awesome! But her hair is too short." Oh well...never said I was a hair stylist!
