Lindy got to sort of have 2 birthdays so to speak. On her actual birthday Clayton and I made cupcakes and took them and a balloon in to her classroom to enjoy with her classmates and teachers. I've always wanted to make these cupcakes and I finally got around to it. They turned out pretty cute and the kids loved them.

Clayton and my princess
On the 17th we had her birthday party. It was a somewhat busy and crazy day. It had snowed allllll day long so the roads were a bit slick, plus we had the missionaries coming over for dinner on top of Lindy's sleepover skating party.
Lindy with her friends Courtney and Tiffany. We found out that Tiffany has the same birthday as me!
This was a pretty fun cake to make. Lindy picked out the colors a year ago, but last year was a hectic time for us with sick kids and all so we had to hold off on her birthday party until this year. She was pretty excited when she saw it.

She got them all, there were no trick candles this time around.

There was a lot of cake for us all to eat. We tried to make the cake blue inside but I was out of blue, it ended up being green instead. It tasted good no matter what color it was.
Tiffany gave her an awesome tie dye kit. She is super excited to get some shirts made!

Dad and I got her a yellow hoodie from aeropostale. I discovered that her favorite colors were yellow and bright green. So refreshing from pink and purple! We also got her a bag that we had to exchange for a better one, she ended up with a bright yellow Jan Sport bag that she is perfectly happy with. She also has a new pair of rollerblades that we had to get later because the roads were too bad for me to make it to Reno. It was rumored that there were 11 wrecks on I80 and my friend trying to get to the dentist ended up turning around and coming home after an 1 1/2 wait, so it was much better to give a late gift than try to get to town!

Courtney gave her an awesome CTR ring. Lindy wears it everyday. I'm really proud of how well she has taken care of it.

We also got her a soccer ball. It is highly coveted in this house! Minnie gave her a coloring kit, it was pretty cool with all kinds of different art materials such as pastels, paint, crayons, markers ect.
Afterwards we went rollerskating where Courtney was the pro and the teacher. Lindy and Tiff had never been before. Lindy took off with it, she had no fear. Tiff took a bit longer but got it down and all had fun. Even me and Chelsea skated. I didn't pick it up as fast as I usually do, a sure sign that I'm getting old. Afterwards Tiff went home :( while Courtney spent the night. The girls were up till super late while they watched 2 movies. The next day we finally got around to doing the pinatta. It was not as sturdy as we thought and broke after only the 4th person. The snow on the otherhand, pretty much all gone by 3:00 p.m.!
