Keys to My Heart

It is time.

I now know how to add videos onto our blog.  You guys are in trouble.

Actually, today you are in for a treat, especially if you are a grandparent, and especially especially if you are a grandparent of Christian and Michaela.  Here is a video of the two of them playing the piano (separately) at their Spring Recital, which happened to be on Mother's Day this year.  What a delightful gift for me!  I hope you enjoy it, too.

I am so proud of Christian for playing his piece.  He chose not to participate in the winter recital; his nerves got the better of him.  It was a big deal for him to walk up there, sit on that bench, and play.  He did it without music in front of him, as well!

And Michaela.  I don't have words.  My heart feels so full when I listen to her on the piano.  She loves to play, and I love to hear her, so our arrangement works really well.  I think she did such a beautiful job.  When she plays Amazing Grace, I think,"It is, isn't it?"

I'm glad to share this moment with you all.  There will be more to Eliana in her musical debut.  I know you can't wait!

That's great! I am really wanting Evan to take piano this next year. They did a great job.

I love the look of pride on Christian's face when he finished contrasting with Michaela's "yeah, no biggie" attitude.

They both looked and sounded beautiful.

OMG~Michaela was absolutely wonderful! This brought tears to my eyes! Did you know that Amazing Grace was one of Mom's (grandma) favorite hymns?
Christian did really good too!
Thanks for sharing!! Love you sweet Niece!

Wow!!!! They were so awesome!!! Especially Michaela, it's like she really is speaking through her hands on those keys...seriously, there were so many different colors, and the way she was moving at the same time, it was like her whole little body was playing it! And they were so precious both of their reactions. I love that I can watch them on video now on your blog now too...could you just leave your video camera on all day and then post it?!!
Love you all,

That's so well done, by both of them! Anastasia watched it with me and when I told her how old Michaela is, she said, "I thought that was a lady!"

Yes, such a little lady.
