A Pirate's Life For Me

Arrr Matey!~ Cooper be turnin' 2! So I decided in my other life I would be a party planner. I had a lot of fun planning my sister's birthday party. I am having even more fun planning Cooper's 2nd Birthday. Let me first say... I totally agree with the whole "it's a waste to spend a lot on birthday parties..." etc. But for me... you just pick a color scheme and spend a little on the details. It goes a long way. In the end, it's about having fun... (and getting good pictures from it!)

That being said, I spent about $12 to create the following signs for Coop's birthday. That's about $2.40 per sign. I think it's worth it! I started with 4 cheap canvases - the 5th came later...

Kids will be walking the plank!

...and getting some grub! (Not shown: Drink Up Me Hearties, Yo Ho!)

We are going to cover Cooper's kiddie pool in burlap and fill it with sand. There be treasure in that there sand!!

I'm also making a general Cooper is 2 sign... Just can't figure out what to call him. My sister suggested Captain Cooper the Rollin' Crab Whacka (randomly generated pirate name!). It's a little long for my tastes... Anyway, planning this has made me miss Disneyland like you wouldn't believe. Love this song so much!!
