This past Friday, my nephew, Lane turned 12. We celebrated it that night at my sister, Marion's house. I, of course, made him a cake. I did a dinosaur cake and I loved how it turned out. It is on my favorites list of cakes I have made.
Here it is.
I made the volcano out of an ice cream cone and I tried to make it look like the dinosaurs were fighting and make it look like one was drinking from the river. It turned out just the way I had imagined it. I was pleased.
Here is Lane with his gifts he got earlier that day.
This is my cousin, Shawn. I had him come to the party at the last minute. He lives below my brother and, when I went pick up Lane, I went downstairs to his apartment and asked him to come. He usually comes whenever I ask him to. We have been close cousins ever since we were little. Even when he moved to Alabama and came back, it was as if time never passed. I love my cousin Shawn and his brother Levi. I am close to him too. I just love his whole family. His mother, Ruth is my dad's sister.
My sister-in-law Carolyn made shepherd's pie for us for dinner.
Uncle Ernie and Marion's boyfriend, Monty just chilling.
My dad just a chillin too.
My sister just bought him this Utes shirt for his birthday. He looked great in it. I think my dad should wear red more often.
I had to put a picture of my Sweet Pea in the post.
Ayla and me at the party.
After dinner, we all sang to Lane.

This post reminds me of something. Oh yeah. It is a lot like Morganne's birthday post, that I just recently posted.
Lane was so funny. He decided to put some of his cake on his nose. He was actually wanting to have a food fight. I told him to go ahead and start with Grandma. My mom was not too happy about that. I always tease my parents. It is my job to tease. I am the baby of the family. Needless to say, we didn't have a food fight. Sorry Lane. Maybe next time.
Here is Lane showing off what he got earlier that day.
He got a light saber from his parents and Madagascar 2 from my parents. Our present was the cake, so he had a lot of dinosaurs to play with.
Marion and Monty got him a small fish tank with a small betta fish.
Here is the fish. He is in the left bottom corner of the tank. It was a cute little tank. Don't you like the little Shark statue?
We all had a great time celebrating Lane's birthday.
Happy Birthday Lane!! I love you!!!
