Jacob's Pirate Party

Last month, on the 23rd, Jacob turned four years old!

I can hardly believe the little boy who made me a Mama is already four! We celebrated with a Pirate party on Saturday the 31st. Jacob loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates and the soundtrack is on repeat in our minivan right now. Since the entire CD is 20 minutes long....seriously.... it needs to be longer, I know all of the words to all of the songs by heart.

I don't have many pictures since I was helping unwrap presents and serving food and drinks. This was the first year Jacob was really excited for his party. He knew it was his birthday and for weeks before hand he would hand out party hats at dinner, make us sing Happy Birthday and "practice" blowing out fake candles. Hilarious!

We had pizza for lunch and then ate cake. All the kids got pirate bandanas, pirate swords and eye patches! I can't believe that at his next birthday he'll be 5 years old and eligible for Kindergarten. He is growing up way too fast.

As for presents, this year he got Leap Frog Tag and four books, a Spiderman action figure, Spiderman and Batman books, a Cars race track with Francesco Bernoulli and Lightning McQueen, a baseball glove, baseballs and a Red Sox hat, a Thomas counting game, a drum, a Lightning McQueen t-shirt, a Mickey Mouse Look and Find book, a Chuck the Truck toy, a Spiderman puzzle and a remote control Finn McMissile!

On his actual birthday, we took him to see The Fresh Beat Band at the Orpheum Theater in Boston. This was the first time we left Eli since he was born and the first "concert" for Jacob and Grace. The FBB put on a great show and the kids had a blast. They were dancing in the aisles and singing along to all the songs while Jacob waved frantically yelling, "HI!!!" as if they could see and hear him. It was an unseasonably warm day for March with highs in the 70's so we wore t-shirts and had a nice stroll through Boston on our way to the show.

Grace's favorite, Kiki!!

Jacob's favorite, Twist!!
