Elijah first violin lesson

I received a miniature violin for my birthday that is a bit too small for me but just the right size for my little nephew Elijah! So we decided that it is never too early to start with music and commenced with his first violin lesson...

Here he was learning how to hold the violin without any hands...this is when baby fat comes in real handy!

Here he is memorizing the names of the strings..."let's see, was it M-I-L-K?" (that's his favorite word, as you can tell from the cute rolls in the previous picture!)


It was about now that he was starting to question us and our brilliant plan of starting a 2 month old baby on the violin.


And that was the end of the lesson...and he let us know exactly what he thought of it too! I guess I need to rethink my teaching methods.

November Birthdays!

Today we are scrubbing and cleaning the house, getting it ready for a birthday celebration! Tonight the house will be buzzing with the happy chatter of our dear family and the sound of children playing and laughing! Now doesn't that sound so totally "Norman Rockwell"!
So, here are the two very wonderful people whose birthdays we are celebrating...
(we are also celebrating Delchi's birthday but I don't have a picture of him for it coming soon!)
Melinda Kay Caron
Born: November 18th
Mindy is such a blessing to me! I am so grateful for the amazing friend that she is to me and the way that she gives and gives and gives of herself. She is the most unselfish person I know and I admire her deeply and love her even more! Happy birthday Mindy!

Elizabeth Marie Berge

Born: November 1st
Beth is my favorite sister-in-law!! I love her dearly! I am so glad to be able to get to know her more since they live only minutes from us now rather than two days away! I appreciate how she shares my joy and gets excited for me about things in my life (sometimes even more than me!). She is a joy and a blessing. Happy Birthday Beth!

A bright path

But the path of the
righteous is like
the light of dawn,
which shines
brighter and brighter
until full day.
Proverbs 4:18
Ponder the path
of your feet;
then all your ways
will be sure.
Proverbs 4:26
