Celebrating Where you Live

Okay, we are going on our 3rd no school day here because of the blizzard of 2011, but we are surviving!  Over the weekend we celebrated our great state's 150th birthday!  Happy Birthday Kansas!
This is a tradition we have had in our family for a long time.  We always celebrate Kansas Day by making a "sunflower" cake.  This year the kids also made lots of their own sunflowers and signs to decorate the house with. 
Do you celebrate the state you live in?  I think it is a great thing.  My kids always look forward to it.  After New Years they say, "Kansas Day is coming up!"  January just needs a holiday to look forward to :)

This year we also made these cute sunflower cupcakes to take to our neighbors.  We put Hershey's Kisses upside down for the middle.  Celebrate where you live.  Celebrate life.


  1. I almost forgot about Kansas Day! We used to make HUGE sugar cookies and decorate them with yellow icing and chocolate chips at the preschool.

    Yours? MUCH much MUCH cuter!!!

  2. Love the cake and the cupcakes! What a neat tradition for your family. :)

  3. A GREAT tradition and looks like FUN and Mmmm Good!

  4. Hmm, I'll have to look up our state day. Looks like fun!

  5. This would definitely spice up a usualy dull month of January. We all get cabin fever about now.
