The Cat in the Hat Birthday Party

Due to Evalee's deep love for all her friends on the Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, we had a Cat in the Hat themed birthday party to celebrate her turning 2. Despite the fact that the weather wasn't as warm as it had been the two weeks prior, it was still nice enough outside to play and watch all the men put together her new swing set from Grandma and Grandpa. She received so many thoughtful presents, and she has had a blast playing with all of them ever since her party. She was very excited to open presents, so the present opening was going well up until she opened the toy that she was most excited about: her tool set. After that, she didn't have any need to open any others. We finally talked her into it by showing her how she could use her screwdriver to tear off the wrapping paper. I'm not sure how many two-year-old girls are out there that are as excited about plastic screwdrivers as she is, but it's just another one of those things that make her the girl we love so much. We had a yummy dinner of pulled pork sandwiches, Italian beef, and lots and lots of side dishes. Then we cut into our red velvet hat cake that Abby and I made with love. I add myself very loosely, as I did about 3% of the work. It was a great day spent with a lot of great people, and we felt so blessed that everyone came to celebrate her big day with us!
