Merry Pirate Birthday!

One of my kids is lucky enough to have a birthday right before Christmas.  He wanted a pirate-themed party this year, so that combined with our Christmas decorations made for an interesting ambience this year.  Three recent views of our household are below. 

I told some friends who were over that the pirate birthday party decorations were actually for Christmas.  Because, you know, poor Jesus, if you think about it, has to have the same old theme for His birthday year after year: the whole “winter festival / nativity” thing.  It probably gets a little old after a couple of thousand years.  This year, I said, our family decided to jazz it up a bit for Him.  This year, the Savior of the world got a pirate birthday.  Next year, who knows, maybe Transformers. 

Yar, merry Christmas, matey!
