Nicholas had his 4th birthday party on Saturday. We decided to have a Pirate party theme. The invitations were rolled up like a scroll and even sent out in plastic bottles. The kids went on a treasure hunt to look for a treasure chest pinata. They also played pin the eye patch on the pirate. Chad and I were up until 2:30am the previous night finishing the cakes. We have a pretty good system. He mixes the colors while I do the actual decorating. I couldn't decide between the pirate ship or the little boy pirate so I had to do both. Doing two cakes wasn't easy but I think they turned out cute. Nicholas got a lot of great presents which included lots of clothes for summer, lincoln logs, coloring books, matchbox cars and even an art easel. He LOVES to paint so now it is nice that he can paint and not get it on my table. It was nice spending the day with family and friends. We finished off the party with the treasure chest pinata. Such a fun day but also very tiring. The boys (along with Chad and I) were all in bed by9pm. I'm glad Nicholas enjoyed his party. Here are some pictures.

Going to find more clues.
Jake even got a present from Aunt Shell. A little golf club set.
Chad and I have been together for over 10 years and married for 8. We have 2 boys. Nicholas is 6 and in 1st grade. He LOVES Star Wars especially Darth Vader. Jacob is 4 and is in preschool. He loves anything his big brother loves. He is very funny. Chad just started a new job as an Engineer working in the semi-conductor (nano technology) industry. He is also in the Army reserve. I am a stay at home mom and I love being home with my boys. They bring me such great joy.
