Do You Like Green Eggs & Ham?

As you probably know, today is Dr. Seuss' Birthday.  So, to celebrate, we had a little impromptu dinner.
Of course, we had green eggs and ham.
But to incorporate more of the world famous books,
we made Green Eggs and Ham Wocket in Your Pockets!
We scrambled up some green eggs and layered them with ham and cheese inside uncooked tortillas
Then just grilled them up and Voila!  
A dinner that Dr. Seuss would be proud of.
It's Good!

After dinner,
We played The Cat in the Hat: I Can Do That!
Such a fun game!
You pick a 1,2, & 3 card, flip them over, and read the instructions.
If you are able to do what the cards tell you to do in two tries, you get to keep the cards.
If you can't, you put them back in the pile.
If you draw a STOP card, you have to put all the cards back but the STOP card.
At the end of the game, you add up the stars on the cards to see who won.
Charly had to (1) walk around the Trickamastick (2) with Mom's new dress (3) between her knees.
Chey had to (1) crawl under the Trickamastick (2) with the toy man (3) under her chin.

After the game, we watched the animated Cat in the Hat
while we ate some really yummy cookies I made in my new toy
Which I'll tell you all about tomorrow!
