Piano "Recital"

I have been asked by a few people to put a recent picture of Kate on the blog. It just so happens that I hadn't blogged her piano recital yet, so here you go! This picture is of our 3 little guys in yet another Christmas outfit. Notice Kate's cute little chick fuzz (as we like to call it) growing in. It's so soft! Also notice Ava's plastered "cheese face". We can't get her to stop chanting "cheese" when we take any pictures so all of them pretty much look like this. Too funny.

Since September, Kate has been taking piano lessons, alongside Jackson, and learned a Christmas song for the holiday. Our friend, Jen, teaches them lessons and so we didn't have an official recital planned. I decided that it would be fun for the kids to showcase their hardwork though, and we put together our own family recital. After church they were already dressed in their holiday best and so we had them each present their piece and videotaped their mad skills. :) It was so darn cute!

Here is Jackson focusing hard as he plays the First Noel.

And then came Kate as she dazzled us with O Come All Ye Faithful.

Me and my girls. Love them, love them, love them!!!

Oh my gosh, seeing this blog makes me miss you even more! I wish I could've been at the "recital" but I'm going to get to hug all of you in just a few days. I can't wait to see you guys in Orlando! I'm sending healthy thoughts your way with a daily prayer added!
Love ya!

I love listening to children play the piano!! My girls have been taking for a little over a year now and I will be posting a video of their Christmas stuff soon :) BTW - this set of Christmas outfits is as gorgeous as the last!!

Brings back memories of my little sister Audrey (now 26) playing the piano with her hands and wrists positioned just so... cute little fingers punching the keys :) Kids are so cute and it's fun to see their faces light up when they feel a sense of pride...

I bet it was a great recital with a very proud mommy and daddy :)
