Aubrey's Winter Piano Recital 2011

Aubrey did wonderfully at her piano recital this past Saturday. She played two pieces, "Boogie Jingle Bells" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes." She was a little bit nervous, but she did awesome! She also looked very pretty in her sparkly blue dress:)

Playing away

Here she is with her teacher and fellow students afterwards

Tulips from Daddy
After they all performed, her teacher held the big "piano auction" which is always fun for the kids. They earn music money throughout the year and get to bid on fun things. Aubrey won us some mint oreo cookies and a big bag of starbust candy-woot woot. We likes sugar. And then we took the kids out to eat at Rosati's, one of our favorite pizza spots. We hadn't been as a family since Ammon was born so it was fun to go again.

And here are the tulips today, making our living room beautiful.
Oh, and I can't forget-here is the video clip of her pieces. The color is funky because I was holding Ammon while trying to video and accidentally pushed a button somewhere. Oops.

We are proud of you Aub!

Way to go Aubrey. I am going to show your video to Claire and EJ. They play piano too. I'm sure that they will enjoy hearing you play. I know that it is hard learning to play the piano. I am proud of you. Keep up the good work.
Hugs, Grammy L
