Laine’s Halfy Birthday!

I intended to post this yesterday, but our computer got the best of me. It turns off automatically after 20 minutes of no activity. Unfortunately, YouTube uploading a video without me doing anything to it doesn’t count as “activity,” so it took me a lot longer than expected.

I got a little overzealous with the camera yesterday. I think you will get a laugh out of some of these photos, though, so I am posting all of them.

Re-commence head-tilting:

As expected, I ended up with a bit of help towards the end of the process:
