Captain Kirk, The Pirate King, Has a Birthday

Aye, it be true that the Captain of our Ship
has a birthday in October!  What be more fittin'
than to celebrate his birthday in his true form -
a pirate!

Yea, it truly be his name -
Captain Kirk.  
(Best pirate cake ever, all chocolate for the Captain,
 made by Annie,
what had to be transported across the ocean
to the ship, but she made it intact.) 

And nothin' be too good for this Captain.

He be a man of many faces, many hats, and many fancy clothes.

(One of the wee ones be askin' how many pirate clothes me
had, and me said, "Not as many as Papa (Captain Kirk)!"

But this be his best party outfit - to celebrate
the big day!


He be the Captain of these scurvy mates,

and the Captain of many wee ones - all fit to man the ship.

As of yet - there ain't been a mutiny, but that little
one I be holdin' looks ready to abandon ship.

(Here be the real treasure in life - the wee ones!)

Pirating runs in the family, and they all be trained.

His crew be a scary bunch, but they all be loyal
to the Captain.

Wantin' to make him proud of their scariest faces

Their best swords,

And their finest party clothes.

It's all fun and games, until someone loses an eye...
and this bunch been in a few too many of them 

Don't ye be messing with these two!
Jacquelyn looks like the captain of her ship - scary!

Can't be too scared of this one - YET!
(But with a name like Saylor, she'll be a true pirate too.)

(Me new Cricut, put to pirate use!)

(A serving wench - uh, lass!)

(Of course, some pirate cookies.)

All hail the Captain!

We would swing for you, Captain!

What a swinging time! 

Best band of pirates ever!!  

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, The Family Life for Me!!

The innocent pirate-to-be.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
