Okay, shameless motherly gushing here...
My 9 year old daughter has been working on a project for school where they have an imaginary $100 to plan a party. They were allowed to come up with any theme, decorations, food, etc. that they wanted. She just finished her invitaion and menu and I HAD to share it:
No fear have ye of evil curses says you . . . argh!
Properly warned ye be says I!
Avast! Come to my pirate party!
Where: Captain (Our Last Name)'s Pirate Ship (Our address is listed here)
When: June 9th, 2006, in honor of Johnny Depp’s birthday
Pints of Root Beer
Dead Man’s Cake
We’ll pillage and plunder and rifle and loot, drink up me harties yo ho!
Take home the booty in your goodie bags, drink up me harties yo ho!
Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me!
I thought that was some pretty funny stuff for a 4th grader to come up with! Her party favors include bandanas, eye patches, telescopes, fake gold earrings, and plastic gold coins.
I feel my Disney indoctrination of her is complete!
