Lily Makes her Promise

"I promise that I will do my best..."

Lily has been going to Brownies for a while now and absolutely loves it. She has been really looking forward to getting enrolled and being a fully-fledged Brownie and has been working on her Brownie book for a few weeks now. Last night was the big night and we were all invited to go and watch her getting enrolled.

Lily was so excited to be making her Brownie promise. She had been looking forward to it for weeks and couldn't wait for the day to arrive. Mark's mum and dad drove all the way over from Derby just to be there for Lily and she was so happy to have us all there. We were so proud of her!

After Brownies we came home and had some tea and cakes to celebrate. I made a cake and decorated it with yellow icing and chocolate flakes to match the Brownie uniform. I had to use an obscene amount of yellow food colouring to get the right shade of yellow. The photo doesn't begin to convey the actual colour! Alongside the cake, we also had brownies to celebrate our Brownie and a few other goodies. Lily was thrilled with the Brownie bear we bought her as a surprise. She was a very happy little girl when she went to bed that night!

It was a quiet night as it was Half Term, so there were not as many girls there as usual. I've obscured the faces of the other Brownies here. 

The icing was a lot more yellow than it appears here. A lot more!
