Avast ye Scurvy Scoundrels!

HaHa I just had to say that! See my nifty new banner. It was made by the sister in law of a certain reader of this blog. I just have to say a big THANK YOU!. I love it. I just think it is so great because the picture she used was the perfect picture. Let me explain.

My kids play dress up all the time. 90% of the time they play princess but my favorite is when they play pirate. I get them into their costumes, they run around saying "ARRRRR" and then we all climb onto my bed and pretend that it is a pirate ship. We even have a flag to hook to the main mast (bed post). Everyone knows when you play pirate properly you need a vast array of pirate accoutrements. We have treasure maps, compasses, flags, swords, hats, and treasure chests. Oh yeah we know how to play pirate right. So if any of you need pirate tips just let me know.

Other than my blog makeover a couple of other big things have happened. First of all, it is playoffs baseball time. That means I will be religiously watching my Cubbies on TV every night until they are either eliminated from play or win the World Series. I am betting on eliminated based on the suck fest of crap baseball I saw them play lastnight. Second of all I heard from UPS this morning and my marriage license should be arriving today. This means I can get my Visa to live in England.

Finally, on a serious note. A good friend of mine has a sick child. They are doing a bunch of tests today up in Kansas City, one of which involves the extraction of bone marrow, to find out what is going on with her. Please pray for her. She is only 5 and does not deserve to be in the pain she is in. I will let you guys know what the outcome of these tests are. Just keep your fingers crossed that it isn't anything life threatening. Thanks.

Sending good vibes to the poor little sweetie. Having a really sick child is the worst thing I can imagine. The fear that strikes in my heart is just beyond.

On a much happier note, I love the new banner! She did an awesome job. We're a bunch of pirates around here, too (even the dogs have pirate hats), so I understand completely!

(fingers in mouth) I was born on a pirate ship!

Hope your friend's child is ok. Can't imagine having to go through that.

That banner is awesome! Your little pirates look pretty cute, too.

Oh, good luck to your Cubs. They stunk up the joint last night.

And MORE good luck to your friend. Rough stuff, man. All the best.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend's child. We are at the hospital a lot, and I am always amazed at how tough and strong the kids are. Most adults couldn't handle what some of those kids go through. I will pray that the tests go well.

The new header is extremely cute and I love the fact you sail in a bed! The hubster is a big cubbies fan too and highly excited about it all. Good news on the visa, been there done that, so I understand.

Praying your friends child is okay, you're right that is too young

I will pray for your friend's little one. She needs all the good vibes she can get. I am also cheering for the Cubbies now. I'm a Yankees girl, but I guess we didn't buy that good of a team this year. It's odd not to know what to do in the fall without them. Again, your banner is sooooo cute.
