She Tickled the Ivory

Since September, Alayna has been taking piano lessons. She has a keyboard at home that she practices her music. Sunday night she had her very first piano recital. And she indeed tickled the ivory, and when she did, the most beautiful music played.

There were two other girls performing, so it was a short recital. Sometimes that's a good thing, but these girls were playing sweet, old hymns. It was beautiful.

These two always make such a pretty picture.



And here's the lovely pianist with her certificate and the bouquet of flowers I brought her. Don't ya just love her sequined bag that she carries her music in?

I was so glad that my mom went along. She really enjoyed herself. She hasn't been getting out much lately because she's having some problems with her foot. But after the recital, we went to watch my favorite six-year-old play baseball. She sat in the shade of an umbrella and did her fair share of cheering Eli on. They won the game. They're playing in the district tournament and it's two losses and they're done. They lost last night, and I'm hoping they'll get their mo back and win tonight. I'd love for that little slugger to win a district championship!
After sweltering in the scorching heat, we went back to Suz & Jason's house to relax for a bit. The heat here is exhausting right now. It completely drains you. Eli chose Pizza Hut for supper, so that's where we went. The large pizza, any topping for $10 is a great deal, and the pizza wasn't half bad either.
Got a busy day today. I'm going to my gyno for a checkup and have lots of work to catch up on. With this heat and humidity, I'm doing my outside chores after the sun goes down some. What does that mean? It means mosquito bites. And lots of them. Maybe they got their fill of me last night and will leave me alone tonight.
Alayna's birthday is Friday, so I'll be heading up there for that. I need a helicopter, don't you agree? And on Saturday we head out to our beloved Tybee.
Oh, yeah, on Friday Leigh over at Bloggeritaville is hosting the neatest party, and I sure hope I can join. It's a House that Built Me Party. Go check out these posts and you'll want to join in too, I'm sure.
Till next time... STAY COOL!

Oh how fun! I am jumping up and down for Eli and that sweet Alayna playing the piano! The sound of the piano is music to my ears... I am so clever to come up with that, hehe!

Suzanne and Alayna look more like Sisters, I am sure they hear that a lot!

Happy your Mom went, she needs to get that foot worked on so she will feel better!

Enjoy your day my precious Niece! Be careful on your journeys and we WILL go junking together! Let's plan a date:)

HUGS!

Don't you just love the recitals? Getting all proud of your kid... My Kid plays the violin and when she plays I get nervous for her and then really proud. Mosquitoes... my goodness, they love me. I am in So California and they are not too bad here. But, when I go to Arkansas and TX every summer... I look like a science experiment. They find every nook and cranny on me.
