"Make a joyful noise unto God" Psalm 66:1

I'm  sure that for awhile it will just be noise coming out of this piano but oh it will be a joyful noise!

Meet our new piano. Thanks to a friend we were able to get this piano for free. 
It's older but was well taken care of, with a tuning I'm sure it'll sound great. I'm super excited to have a piano in our house. Not that I can play more than just the top hand even on the simplest of songs but I just think a home isn't complete without a piano. 

I love that it originated in Albany

These girls will be taking lessons someday!

"Music has boundless powers for moving families toward greater spirituality and devotion to the gospel. Latter-day Saints should fill their homes with the sound of worthy music."

Emily Ann is 3 months old

What's Emmie up to?
She loves to smile.
She has started to laugh.
She sleeps through the night. (usually)
She likes to have her fist in her mouth.
She's super cute but don't take my word for it. These pictures are the proof!

Sewing from scraps

The girls found some leftover princess cloth and wanted me to make them nightgowns. I knew there wasn't quite enough to make two nightgowns so I figured I'd make skirts. I rummaged through my cloth and found a chuck of pink to help supplement the other cloth. I managed to make two skirts then looking at the scraps I decided I could "alter" the pattern and attempt a little baby skirt too. Whaalaa 3 little matching skirts:

Lovin' baby Emmie

This is looking really nice

Say what?

I noticed this on my package of potatoes. I don't get it. Distributed by a Potandon Produce in Idaho Falls but Not Idaho potatoes.

Nothing like a good office chair to entertain the troops.

Book Worm

Now this is talent. Reading several books at once, some even upside down.

Ah the "assistant" (As in, "Let me set all these books up for you.")
