Harris' Birthday (Cake)

Last night we celebrated Harris' 13th birthday with his Grandparents, Aunt Delita and Uncle Bill and his cousin, Brendan.  When I asked him what he would like for dinner he responded, without missing a beat, ribs!  Ribs have always been his favorite and so we ordered a slew of ribs and made all the sides which worked out perfectly!

Our house is rather torn up right now with plastic zip walls and random crap pretty much everywhere and I couldn't figure out where 10 people were going to find a place to sit and eat messy ribs!  Therefore, we set a table up in the barn and were all able to eat together.  Plus, the kids could go play in the loft afterwards.

Since Pumpkin Pie has always been a favorite of Harris', I made a Pumpkin Pie Cake for his cake this year.  To make it a little dressier, I added homemade flags and wrote his name and age on two of them.  I love how festive it turned out (and it was tasty too!).

P.S.  Harris finally got that trampoline...
