a pirate party.

cIn the last week, pirates have taken over our house in many ways. They are the constant inspiration in play, the craft project of the day (for several days), even the shopping quest. Today all of the waiting and working paid off! Booker turned 4 today and was sooooooooo overly excited about his party, mostly because he got to dress up and have all of his friends over that would all be dressed up too! The party was a great success! We had quite the treasure hunt, a project of making Cap'n Hooks hook hand, lots of eating, and tons of playing! I couldn't believe how quiet the house was when everyone left! We had such a good time, but most of all Booker had a great he was getting into bed he said, "Mom, can we have that party everyday?" That makes all the time you put into anything worth it! My little boy is growing up!:)

Arrrr...he says

It's very important we got a picture with the parrot on his shoulder!

The cake!...turned out cute!

even Noah got a facelift for Booker's birthday!

Lincoln got into the festivities as well (and enjoyed much chocolate!)

We found the treasure!
I thought this picture was just sweet...while Booker opened presents, all of the kids gathered in as close as they could to see what he was getting....and were all just so excited when he did open it!:)

Blowing out the candles...bad lighting, but thought it captured the moment so perfectly. (I love how Landon totally has his lips pursed as if he is blowing too! so cute!)

YO, YO, YO, four is the coolest to be! (This was his birthday shirt I made him this year...another tradition!):)
