Piano Recital #2

Tuesday, December 25th, 2018

2018-12-16 16.04.53

On December 16th the big girls played their piano recital. This year was different for us as the recital was held at the Mormon Trail Center here in Omaha instead of at our church. I’ve been wanting to head down there for a couple years now to see the displays of Gingerbread they put out during their Gingerbread Festival.

I was sad to have to miss that and miss the girls’ performances this year. There was just too much scheduled at the same time, I was hosting a baby shower during. So while I had 4 babies Phil took 4 with him. Thankfully he was able to get some video snippets for me.


The Spelling Bee

December 10: Another new experience for our big girl. She made it into the school spelling bee which apparently all 5th graders were required to test for. Only 20 students were in the Bee however and Lily made it all the way to the the final 7. One of her best school friends went on to win and will go to the citywide spelling bee.

A Chorus Show

I’m so proud of our Lily. She has been involving herself in a lot of things that are completely new to her lately. Earlier this month she volunteered to go along with the chorus group she’s in from school to perform Christmas songs at an outdoor mall. Unfortunately some nasty weather was moving in at the same time so Scheel’s was kind enough to allow the kids to sing inside their store.


Summer Vacation – Lily’s Potter Party

For a few months I knew I wanted to throw Lily a Harry Potter 10th birthday party. Because we would be in Austin at my mom’s house a couple weeks before her birthday I thought it would be fun to rope her into the planning and partying. She and my nieces once again (remember her Lemony Snicket party last year?) went out of their ways to pull this off.
