Ok, I know that is very elementary and full of mistakes but they just started playing that one night unassigned or hounded after.  I could get used to being the piano teacher if they just do stuff like this on their own! 🙂  We are going to have our own family Christmas recital this year and I’ll have to post a perfected version of this song…

  1. saw grace and claire at the christmas concert thing on saturday at the mesa arts center… we sat RIGHT behind them and they were the most adorable little ladies. i wanted so badly to say hi to them and say that i read your blog, but i didn't want to ruin their fun night with my fangirl-ness. i totally noticed grace's braces and i thought to myself, "well, i bet there will be a blog post about that soon!" but seriously, your kids are just as awesome in person… adorable.

  2. Always love reading your blog! Love the little moments captured through iphones too. 🙂 So I was reading a post you did in 2010 on Christmas traditions and I love the straw in the manger one- especially love the paper (instead of real hay). But I'm wondering where did you get that manger?? I've been looking all over for one and can't find one anywhere!!
