Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Jake and the Never Land Pirates Giveaway!

Ahoy Matey's!  Did you all have fun on National Talk Like a Pirate Day!  How fun is this holiday??  I don't know about you but A,W and even little R are way into  pirates.  They are especially fond of the darling show on Disney, Jake and the Never Land Pirates.

In celebration of this super fun holiday the kids, a few friends and I had a pirate party extravaganza!  The kids got all decked out in pirate skull caps and beads and hats and eye patches and they were all just so cute!

We had "pirate pizza" and "pirate punch" and "scallywag sweets".  The kids went crazy over this pirate feast which was really just pizza, grape juice and an assortment of cakes and cookies with fancy words thrown in front of them!

We even had some pirate fun by decorating our pirate ship (formerly known as the swing set!) and digging for treasure in our garden patch!

To cap off our pirate party we all watched the upcoming release, Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho, Mateys Away!  I think this part was the crowd favorite.  This show is just so much fun and the kids had so much fun watching their favorite characters and, truth be told, so did I!  Here is a bit about this fun, upcoming release:

About the DVD Release:
On September 27, The Walt Disney Studios will be releasing Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho, Mateys Away!, a DVD packed full with seven episodes from the series and two incredible bonus features including Yo Ho, You Want To Be A Pirate?, where Jake teaches viewers how to talk like a pirate, and Pirate Party With Pirate-oke, a collection of music videos performed by The Never Land Pirate Band that allow viewers to enjoy with or without the sing-along/karaoke-like feature. 
Retailing for the suggested price of $19.99 in the U.S. and $24.99 in Canada, the Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho, Mateys Away! DVD also comes packaged with a bonus 7-track CD sampler and a pirate eye patch.

About "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" TV Series:
"Jake and the Never Land Pirates" airs daily during Disney Channel's Disney Junior programming block for kids age 2-7. The series stars the voices of Colin Ford (TV’s “Supernatural”) as Jake, Madison Pettis (TV’s “Cory in the House”) as Izzy, Jonathan Morgan Heit ("Bedtime Stories") as Cubby, David Arquette ("Scream 4") as Skully the lookout parrot, Corey Burton (TV’s “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as Captain Hook, and Jeff Bennet (TV’s “Johnny Bravo”) as Mr. Smee. 

My pirates and I, Captain Mom, highly recommend this fun filled DVD.  You will find yourselves singing along with the songs like real pirates (I know we did)!  In addition to buying this one you should definitely make a party out of it like we did with fun ideas from the Disney Junior website (found HERE).
