Amazing cake frosting

A few days ago, we celebrated Andrew’s 8th birthday with my family.

I swear every time we get together, we never leave before 8. So much to do and talk about, SO little time

For birthday’s we always have confetti cake, which started even when my brothers and I were little. And so it continues.…..

I kindof followed this recipe

Cake Frosting

-4 cups powdered sugar

-1/2 cup butter

– 1 tsp vanilla extract

– 4 tbsp milk

Directions:

1.) Beat butter until smooth

2.) Add vanilla

3.) On slow, add sugar

4.) Add milk, and beat till light and fluffy (5 minutes)

(the website said you can store this in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. when does icing last that long anyway? haha)

Not too bad

Question for you:

Do you have a tradition when it comes to birthdays?

Father’s Day/Birthday party

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! I know Andrew and I are very proud of the men we have in our lives.

We started the day with the grocery store, and church. Followed by a few minutes at home, and a trip to visit Andrew’s dad.

But of course, I had to make Andrew’s cake, because we celebrated his birthday with my immediate family tonight as well. (it was a big night full of LOTS of food (even some doubles haha), presents, and cake!)

Andrew picked blue icing

Question for you:

Did you celebrate Father’s Day?

Beach Bum

I swear I don’t have many more posts about the lovely beach, and how much I miss it haha

Besides getting sick with a 102.8 degree fever, and having to start antibiotics, it was a great trip. Although St Louis’ weather is in the 70s and really nice!

The one thing I will change would be to bring my bike. I didn’t get much exercise, and I was definitely feeling it when I got home. Although, my body probably appreciated the rest (just not the million M&Ms)

Question for you:

What is one thing or person you miss right now?

-Andrew is at the lake with his dad. He has been gone for 2 days. I think I missed him the night he left haha. Luckily, he will be back on Sunday! HIS BIRTHDAY!
