Now we are Three............

My baby is three. I can hardly believe it. Three years since I brought a pink wrinkly baby (with enormous tootsies) home. The first year went quite quickly, the second even quicker and the third...............well. Unbelievable. Here at the Nudie Palace, we had a wee celebration for the Little Prince in a Pirate stylee.

 No, we didn't only buy him a toothbrush for his birthday. But he was super excited about this anyway, after he nagged us every time we went to Waitrose about the 'Letric Spiderman Toothbrush'. The customary response was, 'You can have it when you're three' (because that's what it says on the back of the packet you see). Naturally, it seemed apt to buy him the sodding thing for his third birthday.

 This is his real present. A rather nifty Micro-Scooter. Watch your backs on the seafront, Grannies............

 Setting the scene for the party. Never let it be said that I don't pay attention to detail.

 The Cannon, built by the Talented Mr Nudie. It fired and everything.

 The target, a Galleon of course.

 A little Pirates den at the bottom of the garden.

Treasure chest cake. No, I didn't bake it myself. I'm good, but I'm not that good.

 Digging for treasure, well piratey bubbles if you must know, but the wee shipmates seemed happy enough.

 We be Pirates too 'Aaaargh', erm woof. Whatever....

 One very happy little piratey prince at the end of his party. Happy days. Still can't believe he's Three though.
