Birthday Party

Reese had a birthday party the weekend before school started.  I will add pictures to illustrate the following narration, so feel free to wait until then to read up.

It was a Jake and the Neverland Pirate party.

We started by getting the kids all pirated up.  In the cartoon, Jake has the pirate sword, so we made sure everyone got a sword. They also got tatoos and hats.

Uncle Matt and Aunt Shelly were there to help out

In the show, Cubby has the treasure map.  We found a treasure map and Each kid got to have a turn being "cubby" and following the map to the next "X".

 Which led us to another map.

Which led us to another.

And another and another until we found the team treasure chest!  Which also happened to be a pinata.

 In the pinata were some goody bags.

Of course, all the girls' favorite Neverland Pirate is Izzy, who has a pouch of pixie dust on a necklace. So we made necklaces with pouches.

Then cake!  With bubbles!  The pirate's boat has a name and a personality.  His name is Bucky.

And presents.

Yay pirates!
