Xander is 6 today!

That's the cake that I spent all of yesterday making. I had a really stressful weekend, I have to say I am so glad it is over with! I think I cried twice over that cake--the fondant was giving me attitude. Also, the kids were sick this morning, we have a cacophony of coughing at our house right now. So fun. (I probably shouldn't be writing this right now, because I am grumpy).

Anyway, he had a pretty fun birthday and he's very excited to be six. He loved his cake, which was inspired by one I found on He got a box of cereal too, which was almost the only thing he asked for present wise. We usually by the bagged Malt-o-Meal cereal, so having his own box is going to be a real treat. Here he is with his favorite present:He also got a shirt, his first set of Legos, a pop-up punching Superman, a rocket from the Blairs, and a set of the Bob books, since he's out-grown his first reading book (he is on his way to reading everything in sight), and Othello, which is a board game. We are going to Chuck E. Cheese on Wednesday, so hopefully we will all be less sick, less stressed and more cheerful.
