I felt it was especially fitting since Alyssa is our very own very hungry caterpillar. We often joke that she might very well be out eating her 15 year old uncle, which is no small feat. She has always had a healthy appetite and a willingness to try almost anything new. I debated for a long time whether or not to have her little party on her birthday which happened to fall on a Sunday or celebrate a day early. When the few guests we'd decided to invite couldn't make it Saturday I said to heck with it and had it Sunday evening.
Don't you just love the caterpillar invitations?

We started off the party by reading a giant version of the storybook. Then we had dinner of hot dogs, salad, and lots of fruits from the pages of the story book.

While I know it was such a very long time ago. I couldn't let this momentous occasion go unblogged.
