Since we go to church in the afternoon, Scott and the girls had a few hours to kill this morning. Emily came up with the great idea to have a pirate party!
What's a pirate party? Just ask Emily! She came up with the list.
1. Hide pirate treasure
(the boxes they made at Lowe's yesterday)
2. Make treasure maps
3. Dress in pirate costumes
4. Make pirate eyepatches and beards
I wondered how they'd make the eyepatches and beards, but luckily Scott is creative. Making an eyepatch couldn't be that hard (I think he earned that merit badge in Scouts) and I figured he'd tape some paper on their faces for beards.
When I was a little kid I decided to make myself some lovely purple tights right before we had to be somewhere fancy. I used markers, of course. I remember my mom freaking out, sticking me in the tub and then using something smelly to try to remove the marker. This was in the olden days, remember, before washable markers were invented.
I only buy washable markers.
I hope they come off faces easily, otherwise we're not going to church, as we would not be promoting reverence.
Here's Emily, Le Pirate Moustache.
Molly looks strangely like Vince Neil with her biker mustache.
Don't you agree?
At least I am not bored - ever.
