A surprise for Lindsay Lark

Happy Birthday to my niece Lindsay!Here she is with her niece Hailey.

Also, CONGRATULATIONS Lindsay!
Next month she graduates with a MASTERS in social work.

Brock put together a little video for her...
to sort of bring her back to 1983, the year of her birth.
It's a mixture of Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas that year.

Lindsay is the baby in this video. As you can tell from the video, she is a very loved part of our family.

You will see 5 family members who are no longer with us, including the one filming the original video.

Wow, what a surprise! I'm having a hard time seeing through my tears to type this- I can't think of a better birthday present. I was just getting ready to climb into bed when I decided to quickly check your blog and it was by far the best part of my day. Thank you so much, I don't know how I got so lucky to be born into such a wonderful family!

I commented on this before you added the picture of Lindsay and Hailey. That reminded me of a whole bunch of things. Especially how kind and dedicated she was to Hailey's mom, her sister, Robin. Lindsay is truly an amazing woman.

Happy Birthday, Lindsay. It's too bad I wasn't there back in 1983. I would have been your favorite uncle. ;)

Happy Birthday Lindsay. What a darling picture of you and Hailey. I'm not sure who is cuter!
You remind me a lot of your Aunt Laurie when your hair is long. Hope your day was great.
