happy 12th birthday, lindsey.

Sunday, March 30, 2014


can't believe this girl is twelve years old now.  cannot believe it.

she's sassy and smart and confident and funny.  she doesn't hold grudges and she's really laid-back.  she's seriously patient with her brothers--three above her, one below--and sometimes, that alone, deserves sainthood.  she's fun to dance with, and i can't count the number of kitchen dance parties we've had after dinner, or before.  she's always the first to join me, thank heavens she does.  they're infinitely more fun together.  those are just some of the things that we like about our lindsey.

when we had dinner as a family friday night (her pick: spaghetti + meat sauce!) we said a blessing and included a special prayer for her.  we watched a movie together and had popcorn.  and then saturday night she had four girlfriends spend the night.  they ate pizza and sang karaoke and opened gifts and watched a movie.  they were all really nice girls; we like the friends she's picked out for herself.

we're really glad she's here.  we love you so much, lindsey.  you are one lovely young lady.

  8. I feel like I've been blogging (and reading blogs) for about 5 minutes, but I see this and realized I've seen several of these Lindsey's Birthday posts and think, "holy cow." : ) Happy Birthday to her and congrats on having a wonderful young lady in your family. (and for having a blog I've continuously read for a few years now. #highfive
