Aubrey's 1st Piano Recital

Aubrey played in her first piano recital this past Saturday and did a wonderful job! She started lessons back in September and has progressed amazingly well. Not only is she getting so good, she loves to play and practice(hope that lasts!) She has a great teacher that loves music and loves to teach. Her enthusiasm and ability to make it fun makes it so Aubrey looks forward to her lesson every week. She actually chose to go to her piano lesson over a school function once(I was like, wha??? :) She was pretty nervous about playing in front of people, but she did it, and we were so proud. Yea Aubrey!
Phew! Its over:)

Aubrey and her teacher, Bethany

After the recital, her teacher held a "piano auction" which she does twice a year. The kids earn music money throughout the year(for practicing, good posture, passing off songs, attending lessons, etc). Then they get to use their money to bid on cool stuff. Its a really fun idea! Aubrey won a fun movie bucket: movie, popcorn, candy and soda(and luckily she shared with us:)

And of course, Daddy brought his girl flowers. He didn't disappoint:)
Aubrey, you did so awesome! You are a very talented pianist already! I can't believe what you've been able to accomplish in less than a year. We love you.
p.s. Video clips up next.
