Bridging tomorrow, Nervous and Excited!

My DH made a little bridge for all the girls to walk over. On the top part of the platform where they will walk over, they all put their handprints in the primary colors. Then my co-leader and I added ours. We dated them and figure that we will use this bridge again when it comes time to go on to Juniors.

I have all the vests ready to go, just have to do some final tacking on of the patches. I found that most ALL of them ironed on, but I had to tack them to make sure!

I ordered the cake yesterday and just had NO idead what to get. The cake decorator came up with the cute idea of putting some Daisy flowers on it, but then I was thinking, well they will be brownies. So togehter we came up with this idea for the cake. Daisy flowers in the bottom left corner, then a rainbow coming up and going across to the right hand upper corner. In the rainbow (6 colors) each girls name will be in a color of the rainbow! Then it will simply say COngratulations troop 268. I think it will be cute. The Daisies represent the girls and then the rainbow the Bridge to brownies award :)

Other than that I am just frantic thinking I will forget something or not do it right. We have practiced and practiced, but you never know!

I'll update you all tomorrow!

Shannon~Soon to be BROWNIE leader~ So excited!

Oh Shannon! I love the cake...that's perfect! The bridge sounds great, too! Your DH is a major trooper! We have 2 or 3 dads that are always there to help out like that!

Have fun tonight, can't wait to hear how it goes!!
