Sam's 6th Birthday

Saturday was Sam's 6th birthday!  He was so excited the night before his birthday.  We began our day with Sam opening his presents, and then we had bacon and eggs for breakfast.  His cousin, Joey, spent most of the day with us.  Sam and Joey played legos all day long!  Later that afternoon we all went to Joey's house for supper.  We all really enjoyed our visit with Joe and Leanna and their four children.  

Here are some pictures from Sam's big day.

One last picture of the lovely cake!

To be such an ugly cake, it tasted so good.  I determined that the problem with the cake was the icing.  I miscalculated the amount of water when doubling the recipe, and I never could get the consistency right!

Happy Birthday Sam!


  1. Happy Birthday to your son! I think the whole Lego idea was great! And your cake looks good! I read your previous posts about the difficulty you were having. Great idea to use the lego to prop it up! I'm sure it tasted delicious! Your son looks so happy with all his gifts. Enjoy your day!

  2. I'm glad Sam had a happy birthday and that he liked his cake. :)

  3. Happy Birthday to Sam! (My Hope will be six this year too. Where does the time go??)

    What a lovely day for him. The cake turned out great.
