arrr! ahoy matey!

After Tuesday, our week got much better. Seriously, blessings fell from heaven this week. A true sign that Heavenly Father is aware of us and loves us.

Today was "Talk Like A Pirate Day" and Krispy Kreme always gives away a free dozen donuts to anyone who shows up dressed like a pirate. I thought it would be fun to dress up and take Blake and Evelyn to get donuts. Not that we needed 3 dozen, but you can't beat free.

We put together some very make-shift/ghetto costumes. We had a few pirate outfit pieces in our costume box and our Waldo shirts from last year made another debut.

We pulled up to a long line of pirates. The line moved pretty fast at the beginning, but then it seemed to drag on. We had already waited 45 minutes and so there was no way I was going to leave then. Blake was hot and tired, Evelyn was hungry and needed a nap, but we sang some songs and tried to stay busy. We made friends with the family in front of us and we both promised each other to see each other next year, but much earlier. We totally hit the after-school rush.

Just as those warm donuts melt in your mouth, the tears and boredom melted away once 3 dozen of warm donuts were given to us. Blake scarfed one down like there was no tomorrow.  I gave Evelyn a tiny little piece. Shhh. Don't tell.

 Good thing we had an extended family party at the park tonight so that we could share get rid of our over-abundance of donuts. I only managed to get this one photo of cute Brooke from the night. But we had a great night hanging out with everyone.


  1. I don't think their pirate costumes looked ghetto at all. I'm completely impressed that you were able to throw them together. You are a true Mom.
    And by the way, I got my blue counters tools at Target. They were only available online. http://www.target.com/p/threshold-windsor-counter-stool/-/A-15135521#prodSlot=large_1_9&term=counter+stools

  2. Your pirate kiddos are so cute!! Love that you do such fun things with the kids <3
