Happy Birthday Abby!

{ Abby is Seven!!!! }

One minute I can hardly believe Abby is turning 7, and the next I can't believe she is only seven—she is so grown up. Right now she is enjoying first grade, reading chapter books like a champ, making arts and crafts in every spare moment, and is looking very toothless (and about to loose the second of her two front teeth!)

We had a birthday party for both girls at Jungle Jims. I had a hard time narrowing down the photos, but you'll see they had LOTS of fun with their cousins and friends.

Thanks for coming, everyone!

Canon in Love

Last weekend I was asked to play piano for a wedding (my sister-in-law's sister-in-law). Here are a few photos from the event:

^ Me and my dear husband. (I managed to let his birthday slip by on October 6th without acknowledging here on the blog. We celebrated at the Cheesecake Factory. Yum! Happy Belated Birthday Tom!)

^ Me and my sistahs

^ My sweet nieces

The bride asked for the traditional and beautiful Canon in D, but I wanted to change it up a bit. I ended up mixing it with "Can't Help Falling in Love" for what you could call "Canon in Love".

I made a quick little recording in Garage Band (very easy, I might add!) and thought I would share it with you. The recording isn't perfect so don't be too critical. The part I mixed up is towards the end during the brides processional.

Happy Birthday Sarah!

{ Our princess turns 4 today! }

^ Since daddy had to be gone today, we celebrated as a family last night. She gets to share a birthday party with Abby next weekend.

^ Abby made hats for the occasion. Sarah's said "birthday girl" and Abby's said "lucky sister".

^ Look at the card I got from Grandma B! Thanks Amma!

^ She opened this and said "I love this! I love this! I love it... What is it?"

^ It's her costume/dress up, and it suits her to a T.

Happy Birthday Sarah!
