An 11-year-olds Birthday

Before too much time gets past me, I figured it was time to recap Lucas' 11th birthday.
Birthday Boy
He had three exact things in mind for what he wanted, a Minecraft game band, a stuffed Ender dragon, and a lava lamp.  His list stayed the same for over a month.

Since he knew exactly what he wanted, we did some sneaky packing to throw him off a bit--

it worked. 

 He got the three things he wanted, along with some books.

Gone are the days of themed birthday cakes that I love making, I guess when you are 11 you are just too old for those.  The cake was a near disaster when it completely cracked while cooling.

  But enough frosting sort of saved it.

This year he did request a Letter L and then Happy 11th Birthday, which was a step up from last year's simple cake.

He was excited and happy throughout the whole day and thankfully this year his birthday fell on a Thursday, the one weekday that we don't have a million places to run.  

I couldn't be more proud of the boy he is and the awesome young man he is becoming.

How do you celebrate birthdays in your family? 


  1. Wow he's looking so old. Time just speeds up doesn't it?

  2. What a great day! I'm glad he had a happy birthday!

  3. Happy birthday to your big boy!
