Greg turned five on Wednesday...he has been waiting to be five for months now.
I totally forgot he requested french toast and sausage for his birthday breakfast. On a school morning. Shoot!!
Kneaders to the rescue - Dan did a quick run through the drive though. Whew - that was a close call.
The birthday boy got to be the helper at school.
Greg is annoyed with the camera these days.
Tough luck Charlie...the camera will be in your face as long as I am your mother.
He brought treats for his class. To see what I did, go to this post here.
He requested Red Robin for a corn dog. Which he did not even touch! Oh well, at least Dan and I had a nice lunch out and got a few great games of tic-tac-toe in.
Ahoy thar mateys!
3:00 p.m. could not come fast enough - it was time for him to become Captain Greg Sparrow!
I don't recommend making a pirate cake at 1:00 a.m. It was a little sloppy. If you'd like to see a better version for reference sake, please go to this post here.
Thankfully five year old boys are not critical and just like cake no matter what. Hmmm, come to think of it, so do I!
They were a little scared of the Shark's Blood punch though.
They made Pirate Booty necklaces (Apple Jacks on a yarn necklace) Pirates in attendance were Long J Silver, Barnacle B , Black Beard Graham, Black Hearted T, etc. etc. Pirate names were very important and they were cute trying to call each other by name.
Hot potato with a skull. Graham was a good loser.
Getting lined up to shot at the bad pirates.
Since it was snowing in the morning I had to mix up the games and cancel the outdoor treasure hunt. But the kids seemed to like shooting nerf darts at the window.
Walking the plank was also a favorite.
What a cute group! We were sad that two of his little friends couldn't make it due to illness but we took them some cake over afterward. We had such a fun time...I cannot believe my little guy is five!
Happy Birthday Greggie John!
