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.
