Our Gratitude Turkey


This year, we started a new Thanksgiving tradition. In November we put a turkey up on our pantry door and everyday (although we forgot a lot) we wrote on a feather one thing we were grateful for. Then on Thanksgiving, we were supposed to read through everything that was written. (That didn't happen yet...but the year is not over)
Here is what everyone wrote:
What Elisa said: DAD!
What Steen said: Captain Jack Sparrow Legos, Austin Simmons( his friend)
Andrea said: Fun friends to play with, a family, a peaceful home,
Michaela said: good food, creative and fun parents, Thanksgiving, talents, freedom
Alison said: music, Heavenly Father loves me, Steven, Michaela, Andrea, Steen and Elisa
Steven said: my loving wife, a good night sleep when I get one, Health
I can't wait to do it again next year!

Steen's first Cello Recital


Steen played Twinkles and all their Variations in his first solo recital! It was a very long song and we worked so hard so he could stay with his teacher on the accompaniment the whole time! He did so good with his technique and the first two variations were so wonderful. Unfortunately somewhere in the middle his hand got a little off and so the intonation went with it...so I took the liberty of just uploading my favorite portion of the video. ;-) In the part I edited out the chords just sounded like minor 3rds instead of major...maybe a Halloween version! I'm sure in some far east country those chords sounded perfect! Ha Ha! We are so proud of Steen!
