Since we'd watched Pirates of the Caribbean 1 on DVD the Friday before, then saw POTC2 at the theater on Saturday, I wanted to do some sort of pirates theme. I went to the local iParty story and loaded up pirate gear, then discovered they had a Madagascar (movie) section. That is Chris' favorite movie of all time. He can do the entire movie, all the voices and gestures on his own. It's pretty funny.
So I grabbed some Madagascar things as well, went home and decorated like crazy. I bought Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys, which Johnny Depp and POTCs Gore Verbinski produced, and had that playing on the stereo.
When Chris came home, he had to "encounter" several pirates before coming into the house. He was grinning when he came in and I jumped out with a loud "Arrrrrr!", a pirate hat and eyepatch on.
The good news - no surgery for his dad. They are going to start him on chemotherapy tomorrow to see if that will take care of the cancer (we're praying it will). So we sat down for a lobster dinner and pirate silliness, Bandit and Guin included.
Here are the much-awaited photos
