We Party Like (PG) Pirates

September 19th was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. We held our usual celebration and, instead of babbling on and on at you, I'ma gonna post the pictures now  The official banner that freaks out all the neighbors  Rhett's birthday is a few days before Pirate Day. Once again--just like boy-child's birthday--he could have a cake decorated anyway he wanted and chose a Boston Creme Cake instead. FIne. But I'm putting pirate candles on it   Pirate Day cupcakes part IPirate Day cupcakes part 2The first arrival was this Mayfly. Dude! It's loooong past MayLast year we had some problems with kids dropping food on the carpet and walking over it.   So we served all the food outside this year. Rhett built a frame for an awning and brought home some old banner material from work to use as the cover. FACTIOD: As an occupation, Rhett is in the field of graphics too--sign graphics. He manages the local office of a sign company. Their largest client is Spirit Halloween. If you live in the US, you might see a Spirit Store open by you Sept. 1 - Nov. 1. Go shop there! This held the pirate mints in case anyone had barnacle breath  This is our punch bowl before punch. Yes, it's tradition that there be plastic skeletons in the punch. There's a plastic eyeball too. That caldron holds several gallons so I only end up filling it twice.This is my niece Megan. I love her eye patch. It's drawn on. HA!    Oh, she's single, btw. Megan's 23, comes from a good family, a college student studying to be a nutritionist and works at a daycare. And she's not high maintanence. No, she doesn't dress this way all the time.Meet little Miss Amber. She's three. She's also her mommy and daddy's "oops child."   There's 10 years between here and her older sister. Oops.  She knows how cute she is and full of personality. I wish I had the camera when girl-child was teaching Miss Amber to impale herself on a sword. These guys lined the driveway. Got 'em last year at the post-Halloween sales 90% off! BONUSMiss Amber again with my great-nephew Aidin. I'm still mad at my niece and her husband for making me a great-aunt. It's just not fair. I'm not old enough to be a great-aunt, darn it! Anyway, Aidin had a drawn on eye patch too.  Every year there's a battle between the HMS Facade and the Lustful Ghost. The Facade represents the British. We didn't have a British flag when we built her so a pair of Union Jack boxers fill the role  And the Facade throws out the first volleyThere are better picture of the Lustful Ghost HEREAnd hour and a half to fill 100 water balloons and 5 minutes to destroy them allAidin taking the ship! Arrrrrgh! What a good little pirate  And here's Amber again. We have a couple of these miniature ships set up for wee-people. Amber spent a bit of time rolling around in this one then had a static "issue." Nice hairAnd here's my tattoos. No, not real ones...maybe by next year though   I'll let you guess where I wore them   And lest I forget, the alllllll important list of Pirate Curses/Insults! Choose one from each column:ModifierLily-livered Barnacle-bottomed Chum-swillin' Kelp-festooned Rusty-hooked Fish-sniffing Weevil-eatin' Figurehead-fondlin' Albatross-huggin' Hornswogglin' Frog-lickin' Bilge-belchin' Wench-wrestlin' Poop-swabbin' Grog-guzzlin' Porthole-pluggin' Seaweed-smokinNounsLandlubberRum pot Bilge monkey Kraaken Son of a sea cow Gull-dropping collector Fancy lad Sheep shagger Sea dog Monkey dancer Cannon fodder Fishmonger Treasure dropper Parrot spanker Thicky Dirty ol' salt Second assistant cabin boy Our personal family favorites are: "" and ""
