Lindsay had a birthday this week. She celebrated turning 15 over the past several days. With her birthday falling after the Thanksgiving holiday, she got a early start on the festivities when Sarah was in town. We did the birthday dinner as a family the weekend after Thanksgiving so Sarah could be a part of the fun.
Where did Lindsay choose to have her birthday dinner? Red Robin! The three sisters enjoyed the meal and had some great time chatting.
Of course being the awesome parents we are, we made sure to tell our waitress we were there for Lindsay's birthday. The entire restaurant and staff sang to Lindsay and brought her an ice cream sundae to enjoy.
Before Sarah returned to CU, she had Lindsay open her gift. Season 1 of The Big Bang Theory. A recent favorite show for Lindsay.
John and I also had Lindsay open her gift Sunday evening. We had a specific reason why. which I'll explain in a sec.
Hmm what could it be? Crazy looking name on a box.
That knowing look!
Yay!!! New boots!
A perfect fit. Why we gave the boots early to Lindsay was because she had been talking for some time about having to look good for her actual birthday. It's the first time ever(if memory is serving correctly) that Lindsay's birthday fell on a school day. She wanted to look special on her special day. This way, by opening the gift early, she could wear the boots on her birthday to school.
In addition to the boots, we took her shopping to get a few new sweaters. This was one she had in mind before going to the store. She was so happy that she was able to find it.

The celebrating winded down on the evening of her birthday by opening cards sent from Aunt Cathy and Nanny (my Mom).
Forever 21 gift card! Lindsay's favorite clothing store. *Where we purchased her birthday sweaters.
Nanny added to the Forever 21 jackpot with a gift card as well. Lindsay is looking forward to a shopping trip very soon.
To celebrate her birthday, John picked up a 1/2 dozen cupcakes from Gigi's. They were oh so good!
Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday to you...
