Brandon's 6th Birthday

Our little firecracker Brandon turned 6-years-old yesterday.  He requested a Sheriff Callie birthday so Jason and I threw him a Sheriff Callie/Western birthday party.  I organized the party before I had surgery and yesterday Jason put it all together and ran the party.

Jason made this cake.  He got so many husband brownie points yesterday.

When the  kids got to the party they each picked a hat, a sheriff badge and a bandana.

Haha, I love these pictures of the kids!  I feel bad we missed taking pictures of a few of them.

The kids played lots of old fashioned games like tuck-of-war, potato sack races, etc.

After the kids worked up an appetite they came inside for food!

I love how Ellie turned her cowboy hat into a sun bonnet.  Always a proper little girl!

Brandon was especially excited for his cake.

After dinner and cake the kids went outside to pan for gold.  Jason fixed buckets with sand and rocks and the kids had to sift through the sand to find the gold.  This definitely was the highlight of the party.

After they had found their gold they had to wash it off in the stream (hose) and then turn it in at the country store for goodies!

I sewed these cute bags and used my heat press to put the design on them.

Happy Birthday Brandon.  We are so blessed to have you in our family!
