A Civil War Birthday Party

We had a great time putting on a kid's Civil War reenactment for Josiah, Marcus and Josh's birthday (their birthdays are all within 8 days of each other). Stacie and Marcus put together this battle on the cake.

Marcus (Billy Yank) and Josh (Johnny Reb) were immensely helpful with planning and orchestrating the reenactments. I was too busy to take pictures, so I'll be posting more when I get some more pictures from the grandparents.
Here's a great picture of Josiah in all his Civil War regalia. He's a Yankee sharpshooter. Michael sewed the haversacks for each of the kids and we stuffed them with jerky, fruit leather, goober peas (unshelled peanuts) and patriotic stickers. They were a hit! My friend Colette and her family gave Josiah the replica of a Yankee canteen. He's never been so hydrated! He loves that thing and brings it everywhere we go.
