I have been talking about the pi day of the century for years now. It doesn't get more pi-ish than on March 14, 2015 at 9:26 and 53 seconds. We ordered t-shirts, cut out tons of numbers, baked lots of pies and invited many friends over to celebrate. Pi is actually a pretty fascinating little number. The fact that the decimal is infinite and never repeating is mind boggling. That means that eventually somewhere in that number sequence you can find every number that means anything to you like your PIN numbers, social security number, important dates etc. Pretty crazy, huh? But let's be honest this was really just a good excuse to eat tons of pi.
The kids were actually so excited for this party. I love that they loved it.
Chocolate pudding, banana cream and key lime mini pies
Joeys favorite pie was the top right one... I used our magic cookie bar recipe and just cooked it into a pie dish.
Kenny, ziad, tarek, and Sebastian. Kenny had so much fun with his buddies all night.
My berry pie
It's always more fun when Ada is there! // I snapped this after the first few guests arrived, but you should have seen all the pies once all the guests started showing up!
Ada's experimental flavor. It was so fun trying at least 25 different pies!
The highlight of the party for Ellie was having her best friend from her preschool class, Colton there!
Joey, Bruce, Novalee and Bret Rigby
One more because that smile!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss 2015

Ellie is at such a fun age to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day this year. She has been looking forward to this for months. She was just as sweet as could be decorating cookies to share with her preschool class and when she woke up the morning of his birthday it may as well have been Christmas for her! Kenny loves that we celebrate at home, but was disappointed to find that the older he gets the less celebrating they do in school for Dr. Seuss.
Ready to enjoy some green eggs and ham.
I know it's basically the same every year but I think that's what the kids love about it. Plus it's the only time I'll buy goldfish so it's extra exciting.
I refuse to eat these but the kids love them.
Can you tell she is recreating the picture in the book before Sam's friend tried the green eggs and ham?!
Ellie's handiwork
Her highly anticipated breakfast. We were running behind so Kenny had to eat his in the car on the way to school.
Ellie insisted on including her kitties grandpa Doug brought her.
Apparently Bruce didn't understand he wasn't supposed to eat the cookies until we got a decent picture.
I just love the Pride beaming in Ellie's eyes. She did a great job decorating the cookies.
