Ahoy Matey!!!

Yesterday was Timmy's birthday party with his friends from school. I had eight boys here living the life of a pirate :) I am thinking I don't have too many years left of having the boys do a craft at a birthday party so I took full advantage of it this year. They boys made hooks for their hands out of black paper cups, cardboard and tinfoil.

Here's Timmy doing his best pirate interpretation LOL!!

I bought some wooden boxes at A.C. Moore and my sister stained them for me a couple of weeks ago. I filled them with plastic gold coins. The boys used glue dots and attached jewels to their treasure chests. They also added a few jewels to their treasure chests as well.

They all had a great time, enjoyed their pizza, played hard and we are done until next year!
Today is the party for my granddaughter who will be one on Tuesday. It's also her dad's birthday today. This is a busy month in our family!!! Hopefully next weekend I'll get a break LOL!

take care,

Wow Dawn! You throw an awesome birthday party, girl! Timmy must have been thrilled!
Hope Mackenzie has an equally good time at her party!
My "baby" turns 4 next weekend, but we're just doing a family kind of thing. Whew!
Have a good one!

That Timmy is one cute pirate. Me thinks this calls for pirate scrapbooking paper.
