    Talking Pirate Party

    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

    Victuals

    Pirate sandwiches

    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!

    Re: Pirate Party

    Oh how cute!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    hyperbole, is this eventually going to be a real party or no? If so you should try to find CDs that have pirate songs on them like Yo-Ho and "This is the Life of a Drunken Sailor...." (I love that one)

    She's gotten so excited about the project that she's thinking about doing this for her birthday in February. If she does decide to do the party for real, it would be great to have some pirate songs!

    Ohhh, I could have them play "Pin the dreadlock on Jack Sparrow"!!! I could really get carried away if she decides to do the party for real, LOL.

    I am with you on that. I am a person fascinated with pirates. You can always create treasure maps for scavenger hunts too. That would be fun.

    Ooohhhhh, savenger hunts! That would be awesome!!!

    My daughter is getting very interested in pirates lately. Not only does she have a giant poster of Cpt Sparrow in her room, when we went to the library this weekend, she checked out almost every book they had about pirates. She's been telling me ghost ship stores for days now!!!

    Do you have the Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl on DVD? In the two disc set, the second disck not only has the whole entire original disneyland ride that you can watch (but before that happens you watch a clip of walt describe the ride and its opening day ceremonies) and also on that disk is a feature where historians tell you about pirates beliefs, how they lived, female pirates, chinese pirates, blackbeard, captain kid, etc. Very extremely interesting for those interested in pirates.

    Oh yes, we have it. She watches it to the point of me having to put a moratorium on it. I like the movie, but every day is too much! I think the extra features you mentioned are what got her hooked on pirate lore! Well that and the fact that Johnny Depp is her first celebrity crush, LOL

    So you guys know what I am talking about with the Pirates of the Caribbean ride through feature right? I love that the most. It is like I can vist Disneyland on my TV and computer thousands of miles away and plus I will be able to show my future children what the rides were like.
