It seems like Roman has been counting down the days until he turned five for months. Finally this week he turned five and I could say, "Yes, today you are five-Happy Birthday. There was no way we were getting out of having a big birthday party that was for sure. Including himself but not his sibling there was a total of 9 children at his party. Can I tell you it was one loud birthday and was very happy when the parents came to pick up their children. We started the party off with transforming each child into a Pirate by giving them a bandanna and penciling on a mustache. Then the children were asked to sit on the poop deck (the carpet) and I read the story How I became a Pirate. Afterward, the children were given foam swords. I should have given the swords out as the very last thing because for about ten minutes things got crazy. We lured them over to the table for some lunch of chicken nuggets, grapes, chocolate covered pretzel swords, and pirate juice (punch). Then it was time for cupcakes. Roman couldn't have been happier. The children painted their own treasure chest and played pin the treasure chest on the X. Time to open presents. While it was a crazy two hours, I think everyone had a blast!!!  When Frank put Roman to bed tonight he told his papa he didn't want to go to bed because he didn't want his birthday to end.  It was the best day of his life.                              
Happy Birthday, Roman!
We adore you!
Love, Papa, Mommy, Harris, Winston, and Addy.

I made my own milk bottles by soaking 12 Starbucks Frapacinno bottles in boiling water.  The labels and sell date came right off the back.  The cost $13.99 in comparison to what it would have cost me to purchase these on-line I saved more than half the price!  Can't beat that!

Everything looks great and I LOVE the cake! What sweet pirates!

My daughter had a pirate party for her 6th birthday, but it was a pirate princess tea party. (Fancy!) :) We had plenty of sword fights though...I wish she and Roman could have been swashbuckling together!

Happy Birthday, Roman!
