This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Our Little Valentine - Piano Prodigy??

We had the privilege of having Emily spend the night with us last night. Jennifer and Brian were going to have a Valentine's Dinner out with a couple of close friends last night.  They don't get many opportunities to get out without Emily, so we were happy to "take her off their hands." Kristi and her girls came over for dinner (assorted goodies from our favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant, Basilicos) and some good "cousin time."  Haley and I worked on her Legos Star Wars battleship for a while.

This morning, Lyn got some great footage of Emily playing the piano in our living room.  I'm attaching it here...when she's a famous pianist we'll have this as a reminder of the "early days."  It may be boring to some of you, but I love watching it--big surprise!  :)

I LOVE IT!!! She just watched it with me and she couldn't take her eyes off of herself---go figure! I love how she reached for the low and high notes too....Adorable!

Thanks again.....Hope you feel better real soon!

What a sweet girl. I'm impressed by how long she stayed at the piano. I think she's got some real potential. Thanks for sharing!

As a parent, I love to see your grandparent love. Nothing makes me happier than knowing how much my kids are loved by their grandparents. It's nice to have someone who revels in the small little things our kids do that aren't that impressive to anyone else! Keep it up, grandpa!
