{pretty, happy, funny, real} for 22 September, 2011

Monday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. My family (my husband, to be exact) takes this day very seriously. Full costumes. Plundering the neighbors. Grog in bottles. I'm not kidding.

By far, one of the coolest things we had at our festivities this year was the cake made by a friend (the other being my 80-year-old father-in-law's costume. Argggg).


It's pretty, happy, funny, AND real, no?


You can see a peek of my father-in-law's regalia- he's the bearded one (it's real!) with the braid...


How great is that???

If you live near me and you need cake, let me know. I'll put you in touch with the cake maker!
