Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

So once again, it has been a while since I visited this little blog has been crazy busy around here which is just simply grand and I could not be more blessed!!  God is SO good!!

But today I am taking a quick minute from my crazy busy kitchen, and the 750 cookies [insert crazy laugh here and assume the fetal position while clutching a piping bag] that await me, to pay homage to one of the greatest blessings this world has ever known...the insanely talented and magical Theodor Seuss Geisel...other wise known as Dr. Seuss.  His magic has spread across the world with rhyming fanatics... 'villes filled with adorable Who's...Sneetches, with and without stars upon eggs in a box with a fox...and of course all the things that could be found on Mulberry Street.  That magic has fluttered its way into my home and been the cause of countless smiles and giggles as we have enjoyed not only the fun that comes from reading his words oozing and foozing with magic and madness...but the rolling laughter that often comes as the Chef tries to read those magical words to our son.  The memories that these moments hold are priceless...the words that were read by the Chef and I as read to our children...and God willing, read to their children are indeed, magical.  Thank you Dr. Seuss, for sharing your magic with the world...and with my family.  Thank you for teaching us that we "will miss the best things if we keep our eyes shut" "think and wonder, wonder and think"....that "fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living"....and that we should not "cry because it is over, but smile because it happened."  This world  is indeed a better 'Ville because you were here.  Happy Birthday to you Dr. Seuss...there is absolutely "no one who is youer than you".

"Oh the places YOU will go...."
