Winter Recital

The ladies held their winter studio recital at a local senior
center which allowed their students to invite many more guests.


The flute trio was very enjoyable.
No one had trouble hearing when there were three flutes 
each with a big tone playing :)




James played a piano solo and a cello duet with Kristin.  He did a wonderful job, but he always looks soooo serious.

Benjamin played a very nice piano solo.













Helena played a piano solo and a flute solo accompanied by Emily.  The residents seemed to really enjoy the program--especially their exceptionally small students.  They are really cute!

Happy Birthday Emily!

It doesn't seem possible, but today is Emily's
25th birthday!!


She chose a cheesecake for her birthday treat so 
Kristin and I made that for her yesterday...


…and she got additional treats in her sibling basket :)


Then she got her traditional birthday call from the Texas
grandparents.  This is always a humorous event.



The best picture of all is of Emily and James…
James announced yesterday that his intention was 
to take Emily out for a birthday smoothie.
I'm told he did all the ordering and paying and was
a perfect gentleman. (maybe something is sinking in)

Hope you had a very happy birthday, Emily!
We love you!!!
