Ella Bella's 1st Piano Recital

What an AWESOME feeling it is to go a recital & get to see 2 of your girls play! Talk about "double your pleasure"! :-)
1st up ~ Abby Lou (who's been playing for 2 years now)
She blessed us with "Silent Night"

I had the best time just watching Ella as she sat and waited her turn. She was all SMILES :)

And her big moment arrived! "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas" was perfectly executed!
Ella was especially giddy this night because her 1st grade teacher, Ms. C, has come to see her play. Is it me...or do these two look alike?!
Grandad & Nana were there to support my girls. I think it is the coolest thing to have a Grandad who comes! It's often a rare thing to have a Grandad willing to be children are such lucky recipients!
My girls with Miss Sandi, their piano teacher
One proud Mom & Dad!
My hope & prayer is for all of my children to learn a musical instrument. It paves the way for the opportunity to worship in a deeper, more meaningful way. It also allows them the chance to touch others with the Love of God as they play the music that He created.
I Samuel 16:23 Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.
1Chr. 13:8 David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, cymbals and trumpets.
