Cub Scout Blue & Gold Ceremony

My ten-year-old adores scouting and we were so proud when he earned his Webelos badge at our pack's recent "Blue and Gold" ceremony. 

I was the Blue and Gold representative for our den so I had the parents help me organize a den meeting to make decorations for the table.  We printed out a history of scouting (since this is the 100th Anniversary of Boy Scouts of America) and made a table-runner timeline.  The boys did a great job of organizing the events into order by decade and adding lots of great photos, quotes, and stickers.  The completed laminated copy looked great on their table.  You can see a little of it here:

We added some bowls of snacks (pretzels, goldfish, mini-marshmallows) along with some fun pass-the-time activities (History of Scouting sticker book provided by the pack and homemade play-doh ~ a surprising hit with all ages!).

Hubby was here to stand by him when he received his rank and to receive the parent pin as well.

I loved taking this photo with my little guy in the photo area!

He won two trophies for his cake ... one best in rank and the other was "Scout's Favorite" where the scouts voted.  He loved this one the most.

One of our pack leaders had to explain that because my son and another scout had tied for 3rd place in "Scout's Favorite" that one would not receive a trophy at this time, but would get a trophy when another one was ordered.  My sweet boy insisted that the other scout take home the trophy and that he would wait for the new one to arrive in the mail.  Love this kid!

Here is the prize-winning cake:

And, for your viewing pleasure, here are pics of the cakes submitted at the Ceremony.

There are some really cute ones here!
