Pirate Party










We started off Jaxson's special day with a pirate themed party with his friends. We had such a good time! I thought the party was a smashing success. Hopefully the kids thought so, too. First the kids decorated craft foam swords with exploding glitter glue and stickers. Next they had to walk the plank over a sea of dangerous, man-eating, gummy sharks. Then it was off to pin the eye patch on the pirate. After that we played musical islands. Similar to musical chairs, but using paper plates as islands. Up next was Tic, Toc, Find the Croc. And last, but certainly not least, was the hunt for the treasure chest. We ate a yummy (and finely decorated, if I do say so myself) treasure chest cake with ice cream and opened presents. Jaxson got so many nice things that he was all kinds of excited about. His friends were so very generous. A HUGE thank you to Keith, Mom, Patti, and Jen for all the help before, during, and after the party. Couldn't have done it without you. Love you all!

Jenni, you are super mom! That party looked AWESOME! My poor kids will be deprived--I'm not as creative as you. It looks like the kids really enjoyed themselves! Good job!
