Pirate Party...

As a big four-year-old boy, Garrett was finally able to have his first "friend party" for his birthday. We phased through several options, beginning with Spiderman and finally ending up with pirates. As it happens, this time of year and pirates can only equal scary Halloween ghosty type pirates. I wasn't really sure what to do. I finally stumbled upon the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything!

We had all gone to see it at the theatre when it came out, so I don't know why I didn't think of it right away. But, it was perfect! Not scary, not nightmare-inducing, but pirates nonetheless.

The boys helped me make blue cupcakes with sprinkles for the guests. Everyone went home with treasure maps, pirate treasure, and great memories of the dance contest - soundtrack courtesty of Veggie Tales Silly Songs!
