Hunker Down - Texan for hold on to your underpants.
Hurrication- Mini vacation for all those that flee.
Hurricanitis- What we're all feeling after a very busy hurricane season.
Hurricane slogans - Well I guess they are more like our last attempts at rhyming humor in a catstrphic situation. My favorites so far have been: Take a hike Ike and Stay away Fay.
No really, I'm a little nervous and writing helps. Apparently cooking does too, because I'm baking a banana cake and wanted to start cooking dinner for the kids at 4:30.

Hidden in a bag, in a bag, in a bag was A's bird feeder that was waiting to be strung up by Daddy. Yes, I'm trying to tie the blame to him...so now it's HIS fault, right? Well I guess she was anxious to feed the birds and being freshly three and all she is still lacking the strength and knowledge of cause and effect to be able to.... well I'll let you see for yourselves.
Yup, that's a whole bag of bird seed on my carpet and in case you were wondering, and NO the birds haven't eaten it all yet.

Pirate Princess Invitations - Tiffany did an awesome job again!! More on them here. Birthday Banner - This was just construction paper and left over foam skulls.
Pirate Princess Decorations on the Table - Michael's and the dollar stores had their Halloween stuff out already.
Treasure chest - I had all the kid's hats (Michael's), beads & rings(local party warehouse) and eye patches (I made these with felt and elastic) in here. Balloons - I ordered these from www.celebrateexpress.com along with the plates. I just filled in the rest with hot pink and black.
Cake - It didn't turn out how I expected, but the kids loved it and I loved that it was done! Party Favors - I made some booty bags and threw in a few chocolate coins. More on these here. Hot dog Pirate ships - I uploaded the instructions on how to make there here.
Pirate wench - My aunt dressed up like a pirate and help tatto the kids! They loved it!
Pin the patch on the Pirate - We were all set to play, but it was hot and I couldn't get the kids all in one area so we passed on it. Buuuut my mom and dad did a great job making the poster and we'll save it for halloween!
