Planning a Birthday Bash

So it is a dreary day. We got some good storms last night and early this morning. They were definitely needed.

It's a perfect day for me and my little guy to work on tidying up the house for the soon to be birthday bash. Yes, my "pirate" is having a birthday bash.
Number Twelve did an outstanding job making the invites. She volunteered. All I asked her to do was scan something for me. Her creativity took off from there. All I had to do was watch those cute little girls. Who would disagree?

I was going to make the pinata, however I have opted to just buy one. The week when my little guy got sick really threw me off. One less thing to worry about. I have to thank
Da Gal for giving me the directions on making a pinata. Maybe I'll try next year.

In the works are the gathering of pirate gear. After a game is played, each friend will receive a piece of becoming a pirate. A group as well as individual pictures will be taken. The last game will be finding the treasure, which will then lead to the pinata.

Food is going to be easy. Hot Dogs for the kids and Italian Beef for the adults. Of course there will be chips, salads, and other munchies. Oh, and I can't forget the pirate cake.

Now, if I could just get Captain Jack Sparrow, aka Johnny Depp, all would be set.

Hmmm, I am wondering what the little man will be for Halloween? :)

Yes, you must share pictures. Children theme parties are so exciting to capture.

Enjoy your weekend.

You have to watch out with those pinatas. Especially with a bunch of 12 year olds swinging bats at them. Happy Birthday to your little man! ~ jb///
