Pirate Pizza Party

I am regretting that I already used the title "Black, White and Red All Over." It would have been perfect for this post!

Ry Ry turned five this weekend and we threw him a pirate pizza party.  Ryan has had an obsession with pirates for years.  He has been a pirate for Halloween the last two years so a pirate party seemed like a no-brainer.  The only thing he cared about doing at his party was playing the candy bar game.  He loves to eat. (He is very big for his age.  He weighs 8 pounds more than Sammie and she is three years older and three inches taller.)  But he makes up for it in sweetness.  He is my big teddy bear.

Anyway, we invited 13 little boys and only one didn't show. Sam came and helped and the whole thing went off without a hitch.  The kids were really good.

Ryan had to have this door cover for the bathroom...potty humor is huge at five!

Sammie and Luke dressed up and were my big helpers at the party!

We had pizza (BBQ chicken is Ryan's favorite):

We played the candy bar game:

Ryan opened presents:

We hit a pinata:

We kept this little boy happy with lots of Diet Coke:

I made this fabulous cake...isn't it impressive?  just kidding, I bought it all Walmart. I have had some disastrous cakes in the past (here and here) so I got smart this time and bought the cake.

And we ran out of the time or the kids would have gone on a treasure hunt to find these hats and swords.  They just got them on the way out:

All four of my kids were born in the spring.  My b-day is in March too so it is birthday craziness this time of year.  Glad the first b-day is over with!!  Happy Birthday Ry Ry!   Mama loves you more than the whole sky.

This may sound like a dumb question, but what is the Candy Bar Game?

Congrats on the cake. That is actually quite an accomplishment given some of your prior efforts that you have (proudly?) displayed for our enjoyment here on the blog. At first, I actually thought the cake had to be from Costco! ;-)

GNB..it is from Walmart. I was joking.

The candy bar game involves dice and is kind of like the white elephant game with candy bars. It is fun.

Jacob had a great time! That cake!!! You really made it? It is darling! How in the world did you do it (not that I don't think you have talent). I could never make mine look that good!

OK so I just read your reply to GNB...better be careful or people will think you should start a business!! :)

You are such a great mom! I am always in awe of how much you do for them (and you say you're lazy!) Lazy is me not planning any party for my 4 year old next week, but trying to make up for it with lots of Minnie Mouse treats!

Wow! You are supermom! The kids are darling, the party looks awesome, and you are gorgeous. Love you girl!

I have no idea what the candy bar game is but I totally want to play it.

I can't believe people thought you made that cake!

You need to post the directions to the candy bar game. I can't remember it exactly--something about getting to pick one when you roll doubles? I know we used to play it alongside the game where you wrap up a giant hersey bar in layers and layers of newspaper and tape and you have to unwrap it with forks.

This looks like the perfect party! The poop deck is hilarious--my kids would have loved that. I'm actually impressed that you ran out of time for the treasure hunt. I never have enough to fill the time. I'm so glad Ryan had a ball!
