Sparkly Shoes + Pirate Day

The little pumpkin has been waiting 3 years to wear these shoes and they finally fit!!! She said she NEEDED to wear them yesterday to do even better on her spelling test. *wink*
Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world! ~ Marilyn Monroe
Guess it worked...she said she got all 16 of the vocabulary words correct and even 6 bonus points for spelling these additional "robust words" correctly: horrible, invigorated, presented, sweltering, aid, and persistent. Way to go, Grace!!
P.S. Every week I'm amazed at their spelling words...First Grade sure has changed a lot since 1983 when I was making the rounds!!
The littles both got to dress up on Thursday for National Talk Like a Pirate Day...
We lucked out that we had everything on hand...Grace's dress still fit from two years ago and Hudson's outfit was from his Disney makeover last year - LOVE when it works out that way!
Hudson had fun activities all day even though parents were not invited, so I didn't get a chance to take pics - boo!   Grace's class had a super fun snack in the afternoon and my Co-Room Mom and I were in charge of setting it up so I got to see all the littles in her class dressed up - so cute!!  They are the "Pirate Pals" so this was extra fun!
We served cupcakes and "fish + chips" and had little treat bags for the children to take home...
My Co-Room Mom Alicia made these amazing cupcakes! I mean, check out the adorable treasure maps!!!! So talented!!
I tweaked party straws with little personalized flags and added cute labels to dollar store cups for our "Pirate Punch" (lemonade)...
100% healthy Fish + Chips! Yeah, right?!?!
We can't forget the treat bags!!
So thankful for parents that want to have as much fun with all this stuff as we do and sent in all kinds of goodies for the treat bags, which I had in my party stash from the Target dollar spot a couple of years ago... 
And I can't forget the best part!! One of the moms emailed me the day before and asked if she could send these insanely cute donuts as a special morning treat!!! These are quite possibly the cutest donuts I've ever seen!!! Thank you, Liz!!
What a super fun day for all the Pirate Pals!! Photobucket
