we call her gifted! what else is it when you can give your brother a dirty look and still not lose your place? she is becoming quite good on the piano. i wasn't going to post her playing, but after i posted avery, she said, "what am i, a plate of grits?" i guess thats what the kids say now instead of chopped liver, but it means the same thing.

the other morning blake rolled over and very sarcastically said, "i am so glad you brought music into our lives." it was a saturday morning at about 6:30 and avery was practicing his violin. he hasn't quite learned the difference between weekdays and weekends and he is in the habit to practice as soon as he gets up. i don't discourage him although blake thinks it would be nice.
the kids have named them all, but we are not keeping one. we already have 3 dogs that drive the neighbors crazy. we have 3 males and 1 female (the black one). it has been fun. the kids love them. maggie is anna's dog. megan is taking the black female and she told her that even she has to pay $50. they all already have homes. she keeps on telling grandpa that if he wants one he will have to pay too even though his dog is the dad. she is such a little entrepreneur. blake docked the tails when they were 3 days and avery was like, "can i play with them." next thing i know, i look out the window and avery is playing with 4 little puppy tails.
