Xavier's Birthday Cake

Hello!!! Happy August 12th! Today is Xavier's 6th birthday! My, time has flown by! We all say that alot, don't we? Although, I must admit...I remember X being 2...and thought that he would be in the *terrible twos* forever! ;)

We are having a family birthday party for him this evening back at my inlaws' pavillion. :) I know he will have alot of fun. He loves it back there. We'll have hotdogs, chips, beans, mac and cheese and all the other picnic foods. I made his cake's not perfect...but I made it with love. The writing icing that I used to outline the road ended up way brighter than I would have liked...but X loves it and that is all that truly matters. I made buttercream frosting. It's the best. I always make my own icing. You can't beat homemade icing! ;)

Yesterday, I got 12 quarts of beans canned. The kids wanted to help snap....

More beans are still growin'. Probably do more canning here later this week or next. Wow...we have a lot of beans. But I am *not* complaining. My shelves in the basement are filling up and I am thrilled! I can't wait till the corn on the cob is ready! YUM!

Welp...I better be off. I don't like to spend too much time on the computer. Lots of quality time really can be wasted on this thing and I would rather spend it with the kids or doing things around the house! ;) Hope you all have an absolutely wonderful rest of your week and I will be sure to post pics from X's party sometime in the near future! :)
