Big 6th Birthday

Brooklynn turned 6 the beginning of this month. It is awesome and challenging at the same time to see her grow up so fast and develop into a little girl. She has such a tender heart. Every night she prays that no one would get in the "uh-oh" pocket in school. She hates seeing others get in trouble. She is also such a willing helper. I know she will love, protect and do whatever needs to be done for her siblings. She loves drawing and anything artistic. She is already able to converse with others from all different ages and has confidence in the things she does. We are so thankful to be her parents and pray that she would continue to grow into a young woman who is able to impact the world.

For her 6th birthday I asked her what kind of party she wanted and she told me a "BEE" party. Her teacher's name is Mrs. B and the theme in her class is "Bees" so I was not too surprised when that is what she wanted. I went to work to find some fun things to do and she had some ideas of her own for the party. We had a great day and are so thankful for all the people who pour into our children's lives.

I downloaded this print from the blog eighteen25 and really have enjoyed having it to change out for birthdays!

This is a terrible picture, but my mother in law was able to find these cute bee cutouts at the dollar tree. We strung them around the house and made a banner with some of them.

I then made my version of bees out of Oreo  They were pretty simple to make  but cute for the party. I also had honey stix and honey graham crackers.

I also made a beehive pinata for the kids. The pinata ended up being too durable, but it was cute for the party and the kids loved it when I flung out the candy from the pinata. 

This is the little B on her party day. She also thought up a game that we played but I did not get any pictures of. She took a box and we drew a hive on it and then made some bean bags and the kids had to throw the bean bags into the box. We also made antenna headbands and beeswax candles. I think it was a fun day and I hope that Brooklynn felt loved and blessed!

One last picture of this cute little bee that was at the party!
